In 2006, Roy Williams had his best season as a pro. Playing for the Detroit Lions, Williams had 82 receptions for 1,310 yards -- both career highs. He also had seven touchdowns.
Each of those 82 passes were thrown by Jon Kitna, who has become the Cowboys starting quarterback with Tony Romo injured.
But even though they have that bond, it doesn’t prevent the 28-year-old Williams from having a little fun with the 38-year-old Kitna.
Williams was asked why he has confidence in Kitna.
“He has been there and done that,” Williams said. “Not to take anything from Romo but he has not played in the league like Jon has for 37 years.”
Williams, of course, had tongue in cheek. But he continued.
“Jon has been playing for a long time,” Williams said. “He knows it. And Jon has actually been . . . when he got coached by Mike Martz, it opened his eyes. He actually learned more than what he was taught early in his career. That is the big difference. He knows it. Jon has just been here for 37 years and coached by quote unquote the wizard. He knows it.”
