Both players are gone.  Neither is forgotten.
Former Lions receiver Roy Williams attended the team’s annual Halloween party on Monday night, according to Tom Kowalski of
And Williams came dressed as former Lions running back Tatum Bell.
Bell famously swiped (allegedly) the bags of newly-signed Lions running back Rudi Johnson in early September, after Bell was cut to make a space for Rudi.
Details of the costume (e.g., luggage, bellhop cap, Rudi’s wallet) weren’t mentioned.
UPDATE:  Williams, per Kowalski, was wearing a bellhop uniform and boxers over his pants that said “Rudi” on the front and “Johnson 32” on the back.

    Vox, let me be the first to say it…I officially LOVE the Roy Williams signing, for that costume alone! I have a feeling Taco Bill is going to cook something up on this one….

    Did Calvin Johnson go as Megatron or Usain Bolt? And more importantly who dressed up in the Joe Cullen (naked drive thru Wendy’s incident) outfit?

    Kitna actually went as Joe Cullen last year. Kitna’s wife dressed up as Wendy.
    Roy’s a good guy. The Halloween party is something Mike Furrey throws for charity. Cool of him to fly all the back here for it. Kudos on the costume.

    i don’t see anything funny about it, that was lame…roy is a little caught up on himself now that he’s in dallas…he is overrated and only dumb jerry jones would give so much for such a little return…i bet he finishes the season with less than 6 in dallas

    “i don’t see anything funny about it, that was lame”
    Yeah I wouldn’t think that 490er fans are fiunding much that makes them smile these days.
    “i bet he finishes the season with less than 6 in dallas ”
    Less than 6 what? Remember what I told you about “five wins”, fanboi?

    Thats fantastic. He cleared it with Bell? Gotta say, I’m impressed Bell would let that happen. Still, damned funny. I like players that have a sense of humor.

    Since Williams cant make any headlines or newstories for his performance, or lack thereof, I guess he needed to find a way to get into the news somehow….It would have been funnier if he dressed in his own uniform with fake cement blocks on his hands…now THAT would be funny.
