Receiver Roy Williams returned from a family vacation to the Bahamas in time to take part in the first day of the Cowboys' 14-week offseason program yesterday at Valley Ranch. There, he spoke to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and, without hyperbole, sounded like a different player than the sometimes-contentious one we saw last year around this time.
Williams, for example, didn't loudly assert that "everyone" thinks he sucks, a common refrain in 2009; rather, he seemed to understand that, after a miserable first full season with Dallas last year, the onus is on him to prove the opposite, an idea that gives him more than a little motivation going into 2010.
In 2009, Williams posted 38 catches for 596 yards and seven touchdowns, but drew heavy scrutiny as a result of dropped passes and a seeming lack of communication with quarterback Tony Romo. Further establishing a relationship with his quarterback, Williams said, is a major goal this offseason.
