Cowboys' veteran receivers welcome the addition of Terrance Williams

Cowboys starting receivers Miles Austin and Dez Bryant welcome the addition of Terrance Williams. Williams, a third-round pick from Baylor, will compete with Dwayne Harris for the No. 3 job.

"He’s a great receiver," Bryant said of Williams. "He can stretch the field. He can go deep. He can make a short-yardage play go long. He’s got that type of ability. He can go up and grab the ball. That’s what you want in the guy.

"...Whatever I know, I’ll be in his corner to help him, because we need him. As soon as he comes in, we’ll expect him to do big things."

Williams, a Dallas native, caught 97 passes for a nation-leading 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior last season. He had 34 catches of at least 20 yards and 16 that went at least 30.

Two years ago, Dallas' third receiver, Laurent Robinson, caught 54 passes for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The Cowboys could groom Williams to be a cheaper replacement for Austin in 2014. But that won't stop Austin from helping Williams adjust to the NFL.

"From what I’ve seen, I think he’s a tremendous player," Austin said. "He seems like a really nice humble guy on the interviews and everything like that. I’m going to try to teach him things and learn things from him. I’m sure he has things he’s done over there. But just try to bring as many of the guys along as we can."
