Romo: Terrance Williams has really come on
When asked Thursday to name the Dallas Cowboys receiver who has stood out most during training camp, quarterback Tony Romo said he would be remiss to name just one.
Romo mentioned the usual names of Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, but spent the largest chunk of time giving his take on rookie Terrance Williams. The former Baylor standout had his struggles catching the football during organized team activities and the start of training camp, but he’s improved throughout camp and is the favorite to be the Cowboys’ No. 3 receiver when the season starts.
“Terrance Williams has really come on since the OTAs, and just learning the system,” Romo told The Hardline on 1310 The Ticket [KTCK-AM]. “He’s had some good camp days. I think he’s going to be an important part of what we’re doing.”
Williams, a third-round pick, missed the first two preseason games with a concussion, but he’s expected to play Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cowboys will likely keep five wide receivers but could keep six because there has been good depth at the position during camp.
“It’s going to be a good battle here at the end with the roster, as far as some of the wide receivers and tight ends and things of that nature,” Romo said. “We’ll see how that all plays out. It’s been a good camp for those guys, all the way around, honestly.”
