After Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams’ Lamborghini was found crashed by the side of the road, police quickly found him and arrested him for public intoxication. But Williams was not arrested for the crash itself — which he blamed on Vikings receiver Kendall Wright.
Video of the arrest shows that when police questioned Williams about how his car crashed, he answered, My friend was a f–king idiot. . . . He called me and said my car was f–ked up.
Asked who the friend was, Williams answered, Kendall Wright. . . . We went to Baylor together.
Williams and Wright were teammates at Baylor from 2008 to 2011. Williams has played his entire NFL career for the Cowboys, while Wright signed with the Vikings this year after previously playing for the Titans and Bears.
Video showed that the police officers who arrested Williams were professional throughout the incident, and Williams was cooperative.
Jones said he likes what he sees from Manziel, but Manziel is not ready to run the full offense yet.
His footwork has gotten a lot better. When things break down he’s doing what we ask. All those things, Jones said. It’ll be a while I’m sure before he’s comfortable with all the routes we’re running, but I bet if we had the first [string] guys in there with him he’d come along a lot faster.
Manziel seems to understand that.
I’m going to have to earn my stripes up here, Manziel said. I’m going to have to work extremely hard to do what I want, and that’s come and play at a high level.
Manziel’s long-term goal is to get back in the NFL. But first he’s going to have to show he can start in the CFL. He hasn’t done that yet.
Whatever the reasons and whatever the trigger, it’s becoming more and more clear that something has changed in New England. And while none of it may matter when it’s time to suit up and play in September, the fact that both Brady and Gronkowski are nowhere to be seen necessarily affects the overall preparation of a team that uses every phase of the calendar as a building block toward the next one.
