Roy Williams inherited the No. 1 receiver role when Terrell Owens was released. Now he is trying to play the role of quarterback Tony Romo's No. 1 buddy.
Romo and Williams have already started daily thowing sessions. Its uknown how many times a week the two have been throwing. Williams still splits part of his time between Dallas and his hometown of Odessa.
But its often enough to get noticed according to one team member who observed them headed to the field with a bag of balls a number of times.
This is a good sign for Cowboys fans. Workouts don't begin until March 30. But these two along with the other receivers have been at it for a few weeks now.
Its most important for Williams and Romo to get on the same page. Their lack of chemistry and comfort is cited as a big reason for Williams' minimal impact after coming over in a trade with Detroit last season.
They need to develop a trust that Romo knows where Williams is going to be and that he is going to catch it even if he's covered.
That's the relationship a quarterback has to have with his go to receiver.
That's what Romo and Williams need to work on this offseason.
19 catches and one touchdown next year won't due. Short of a Pro Bowl season Williams needs at least 80 catches and 1,000 yards receiving and double digit touchdowns.
