Bengals' S Roy Williams Wants To Retire A Cowboy



    Safety Roy Williams spent Sunday night trying to act as tormentor to the Dallas Cowboys, the team by which he was drafted in 2002, but the Oklahoma product will always be a Cowboy at heart.

    Jones said that he would oblige Williams’ request with a one-day contract, when the veteran safety decides to call it a career. In the past, Larry Allen and Emmitt Smith have signed similar contracts, after post-Dallas stints with San Francisco and Arizona, respectively.

    Williams is entering his ninth season in the league, his second with the Bengals.
