Cowboys Pro Bowl safety Roy Williams doesn’t like playing in the 3-4 defense. At least that is what Cowboys linebacker Greg Ellis told Sirius NFL Radio.
“Greg Ellis made some pretty interesting statements about Roy Williams during an appearance on Sirius NFL Radio this afternoon. Ellis said that Williams doesn’t feel like he fits in Wade Phillips’ scheme and has been isolating himself from teammates.
Ellis said Williams first expressed concerns about the Phillips 3-4 during training camp in San Antonio.
“He said, ‘Greg, this defense does not fit me. I don’t fit in well with this defense at all,'” Ellis said. “So when he told me that, I was like, ‘Well, man, it’s still new. Get used to it and it’ll probably be fine for you.'” And obviously I think it came to be true. Just like he said, he doesn’t fit what’s going on here in Dallas right now.
“Now maybe this year, if they decide to keep him for this season, Wade and them will kind of adjust some things to fit him better.”
Todd Archer of the Morning News says it will cost the Cowboys 6.667 million to let him go. He’s got more.
