Roy Williams: Dez Bryant gives us the NFL's best group of receivers

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams said Thursday night that he’s thrilled to welcome Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant, the Cowboys’ first-round pick, to the team.

“If all goes well, not trying to talk noise, but if all goes well, we’ll have the best wide receiving [corps] in the league,” Williams told Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com. “Dez is a big dude, he can play. He will help us win some ballgames.”

Williams said he takes the selection of Bryant as a message to himself and the other receivers already on the Cowboys’ roster — and it’s a message that they’ll all have to compete to have balls thrown their way, which Williams said he embraces.

“Yeah, [with] Dez it opens up competition, which brings out the best in the guys,” Williams said.

  1. Are you kidding? Ocho, Antonio Bryant, Andre Caldwell and now Jermayne Gresham. I do believe our corps is better.

  2. Roy Williams should STFU and realize he’s their THIRD best option at this point, but their highest paid…

  3. LOOOOOOL Roy is sayin that because he knows his time is done in Dallas, so he wants to leave on a good note! looool Jerry jones even went on record sayin that Roy is a “BUST” what does that tell you about your time left in dallas mr. williams?…………

  4. is it just me, but………..
    1. this is one helluva unorganized production by the “worldwide leader in sports”………….and
    2. dude, Steve Young has taken WAAAAAY too many hits to the head. He’s embarrassed himself, the rest of the panel, and ESPN…………….
    ………………….am i the only one?

  5. So Miles Austin, Ogeltree and Bryant..
    I dunno about that Roy, they are a pretty Green core.

  6. That is about the stupidest thing he could have possibly said…unless he said Romo’s the best QB too. Try about 1400 miles north, there, Roy.

  7. The NFL’s best group of receivers?? If you exclude Roy Williams, they might be the best in their division, but even that is seriously debatable.

  8. So I assuming Williams wasn’t including himself on that comment, lol he has BUST ALL over himself lol. Dallas got fleeced on Williams.

  9. Keyshawn said the same thing when the Panthers drafted Dwayne Jarret a few years ago. Key was cut shortly thereafter.
    Addition by subtraction Roy!!

  10. Time to dump Williams and go with Austin, Crayton and Bryant with Hurd and Ogletree getting time.

  11. Wow jerry went out and picked TO jr. This teams has other needs but it’s the miles and dez show. Roy should just enjoy the ride.

    ******************************
    You forgot Patrick Crayton, who was on his way to being everything that Willaims was supposed to be until that moron traded for him.

  13. you can be part of the duo and say your the best duo, thats like robbin saying me and batman are the best duo, let the outsiders say that, pompous ass, i still think calvin johnson and nate will be better, F U Roy

  14. Are you kidding? Ocho, Antonio Bryant, Andre Caldwell and now Jermayne Gresham. I do believe our corps is better.
    Are you serious? Ocho stinko is dancing. Bryant is hurt and had 1 year, Caldwell is ok. Does not matter both teams will suck as bungals will be the bungals with a 6-10 season and Romo will choke in big games like he has in 80% of the time and goes 9-7!

  15. Austin (Pro Bowler)
    Witten (Hall of famer and Pro Bowler)
    Dez Bryant (Best WR in the entire draft)
    Roy Williams
    Patrick Crayton
    Kevin Ogletree
    Martellus Bennett
    Felix Jones
    MBIII
    Tashard Choice
    WOW

  16. There really isnt any reason to cut Roy, only because what is he do gonna steal reps from Crayton? Ogletree is a 4. I could see them working Austin over the Deep Middle, Bryant more vertical and saying hey Roy if you wanna try and help, Work on your routes and man that short to intermediate area. He is freakin 6’4 and needs to get over his nervousness and get his head back in the game. I just hope Dez doesn’t choke playing for the hometown team as well. .02

  17. Phildo needs to change his name to D1ld0.
    Roy said “Best Wide (receiving) corps”.
    Celek is a TE…idiot.

  18. HA HA HA HA HA!
    Yes Jerry, Dez Bryant does give you the best group of receivers in the NFL…
    …after the Cardinals, Patriots, Colts, Bengals, Vikings, Packers, 49ers, Ravens, Jets, and Falcons.

  19. if bryant even makes it to the field, still not even the best the division, roy. jackson, maclin, avant, celek, and ingram gonna tear ur d up!

  20. Fitz, Breaston, Doucet and Hightower is more fire power then the Cowboys…..Ravens are probably stronger with Boldin, Mason, and Stallworth. Bengals have a better receiving core too.
    Now if you take Roy Williams off the core you get better all ready.

  21. once u retire roy sure eagles have good ones packers 2 colts ofcourse patriots duh cowboys dont fit here

  22. I love it when jerrah runs the draft. It shows when he just goes for flash. There were so many other pressing issues for the gurls and he goes for receiver you have to love how stupid this guy is. Best receiving corps maybe, but you need a line in order to throw the ball, and last I saw there is no left tackle in dallass. Can’t wait for September 12 when we whip that ass.

  23. What are you talking about Roy, the Bears have the best receiving core….Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith have been bending over for years!

    =======================================
    You’re awfully stupid for a guy named “streetsmart”…LOL
    Witten = Hall of Famer???
    LOL…You have to be kidding me….

  25. Ever hear of The Green bay Packers? Williams is a chode. Can’t wait for the Cowgirls to come into Green bay for the prime time Sunday night game. It’s gonna be sweet when them fools choke on cheese.

  26. Mean D says:
    Cowgirls take another thug in Dez. Everyone else was passing on the
    *****************************
    Yeah and how many people passed on Dan Marino and Randy Moss. Geniuses, I tells ya, geniuses…..

  27. I bet you DEZ does something Rothlisberger like and we don’t even see him til like week 8….. But if he is a good boy then the Cowboys will have tossed a 1st and 2nd for ROY… and then because that was a botched experiment had to use another first on another WR yeah got those GM wheels movin now!!! Jerry your an idiot… now you also still have that Flozell position to fill and a Hamlin position open too… But good job stock piling overpriced WR’s

  28. Miles Austin>Desean Jackson
    Dez Bryant>Jeremy Maclin
    Roy Williams>Jason Avant
    Jason Witten>Breeeeeeemmmmppptt Celeeeeeeppppppppppkkkktttt(nice lisp cerrrmmmeeeppttt)
    Martellus Bennett>Clint Ingram
    Not too mention the QB posistion
    Nice try you filthy pigeon

  29. Witten = Hall of Famer???
    LOL…You have to be kidding me
    **************************************************************************************
    He’s well on his way. Obviously, if his career ended today he wouldn’t be one but if he plays 4 or 5 more years at his current level, his a no brainer HOF’er

  30. Austin>desean jackson
    Bryant>jeremy maclin
    Roy Williams>jason avant
    Witten>bwwrreeeepppmmmmmt csseeellllleekmth(nice lisp for your third rate TE)
    Martellus Bennett>clint ingram
    Felix Jones>lesean mccoy
    Marion Barber>leonard weaver
    Tashard Choice>?????
    where exactly are the eagles better?
    Stats don’t lie neither do head-to-head matchups…..Jenkins owns jackson….eagles have no QB..Romo is top 6 QB in the whole league
    And then the whole issue of defense:
    Ware and Ratliif are 1st team All-Pro, no eagles made that list….Newman, Jenkins, James, Brooking, Spencer, Olshansky, Sensabaugh——what do the eagles have????

  31. in roy’s defense, he is a guy that was supposed to be a #1 receiver that has not panned out that way. then he accepts a first round rookie into the corps after already not having the role he wishes. that does show very good sportsmanship. i’m not a cowboys fan ( i hate them), but if it works out with those big 3 receivers all being productive, he is right that it would be a naaaasty receiving corps. good for roy, i do hope he is sincere.

  32. Rice, Harvin, Berrian, Shianco, Peterson
    Wayne, GOnzales, Garcon, Collie, Clark, addai
    those would be the top 2 cores in the nfl

  33. I’m glad I didn’t throw away my #88 Antonio Bryant jersey….it looks like Dez may take #88.

  34. Is it just me or does anyone else notice the strong resemblance between Bryant and Michael Irvin?

    hahaha, whaaaa? I stopped reading after I saw Miles Austin>DeSean Jackson. You’re on drugs.
    I think the Patriots, Bengals, Texans and Colts are the class of the league, as far as WRs at this point.

  36. Please…
    Ravens
    Anquan Boldin
    Derek Mason
    Donte Stahlworth
    Mark Clayton
    David Tyree
    Demetrius Williams
    Look at that talent.

  37. Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Jericho Cotchery, Dustin Keller, Shonn Greene, Ladanion Tomilinson,, Leon Washington…….ANYONE?

  38. Who’s Roy kidding? The Cowboys don’t even have a Top 5 WR corps in the NFC with Bryant.

  39. SLAM ! That was the sound of the door closing on your disapointing and below average career in the nfl…
    You wont be missed by many.

  40. This situation looks familiar. Remember when the guy who works for ESPN and is occasionally on the food network..what’s his name again? Oh yea! Keyshawn. When he was in Carolina and they drafted Jarrett from USC. He was all excited about the acquisition of the rookie and the next thing you know…. Grab the axe!!!

  41. If you are a Redskins fan, you should not be posting any comments about recieviers when your receievers are made up of has beens (Santana Moss) and ineffectives (Devin Thomas, Malcolm Kelly). The only good player in your whole recieving corp is Chris Cooley. Even with Donovan McNabb you will be lucky if these guys catch 20TDs all year…..

  42. Who the hell is CLINT INGRAM ?? the Eagles have a TE named Cornelius Ingram is that who you mean twitbeats?

  43. @Funi
    “Are you serious? Ocho stinko is dancing. Bryant is hurt and had 1 year, Caldwell is ok. Does not matter both teams will suck as bungals will be the bungals with a 6-10 season and Romo will choke in big games like he has in 80% of the time and goes 9-7!”
    Just b/c Ocho is dancing that means he won’t put up 1k yards? You’re a moron. With Bryant opposite him and Gresham down low with Caldwell in the slot, at least 2 of those guys will get 1k yards. 6-10? Really? What a douche. Check your facts son.

  44. Roy, meet your replacement. I’m glad Dallas has continued their tradition of going after character guys. I’m also cracking up at the notion that Witten is a HOF’er already.

  45. Bengals 5 WIDE!!!
    -Ochocinco
    -Antonio Bryant
    -Andre Caldwell
    -Matt Jones
    -Jermaine Gresham
    Ladies and Gentleman… The Bengals Offense is STACKED!

  46. SB bound baby….f all you mthr fing haters out there…u all know we are stacked now and if we put 35 pts a game on board game to game with our defense there is no stopping us.

  47. Miles-Dez-Roy-Witten > your team’s receiving corps.
    Dallas officially has the coldest group of receivers in the league.

  48. Listen you (mostly) average fools, JJ just dusted your teams and got the best wide receiver in the draft at the 24 th spot. Those who passed on him were scared of his lying issues. Well what a suprise, a 20 year old kid lied. what has society come to.. hee,hee… a kid lied, now that’s a first. This guy’s a beast, and JJ took advantage of the hysteria going on in the NFL. He got a top five player for peanuts, because other owners have no nuts.

  49. lol there are some stupid people that are posting in here.
    “If we put 35 pts a game on the board game to game … there is no stopping us”
    too bad you won’t be putting up 35 pts game to game dumbass
    And anyone calling the Bengals receiving group good is just lol. Ocho is still a stud, Bryant is being over rated as hell, and all the rest just flat out suck. Gresham will be decent… except Bratkowski is a terrible OC and won’t even know how to use him.

  50. “I love it when jerrah runs the draft. It shows when he just goes for flash. There were so many other pressing issues for the gurls and he goes for receiver”
    Reaching for needs is more the Deadskins’ style. The top OT’s and S’s were gone and Bryant was by far the best player left with a huge dropoff after him. Enjoy the season, bottomfeeders.

  51. “hahaha, whaaaa? I stopped reading after I saw Miles Austin>DeSean Jackson. ”
    Why? Jackson is a one-trick pony. All he has is speed and all he can hope to do is outrun coverage. Austin does it all.

  52. @ Eagles filth
    I think Miles Austin is a better WR than Deshawn Jackson..there is more to being a WR than being fast…routes and blocking too. Deshawn is more atheletic but that doesnt make you a better receiver. I would stick with Miles because its a matter of time before Deshawn gets hurt because of his size or lack of.
    Eagles fans want to talk about character while they have a dog killer on their team..please..and Deshawn Jackson fell in the draft a few yrs ago becuase he was a punk..look in the mirror before you open your mouth. You drafted a DB that was arrested for stealing a video game before the draft(Ikaguanu-something like that) and had a player last year arrested for weed…so shut it…I know more about your team than you do.
    Witten is not a hall of famer and Roy is an idiot and i am a cowboys fan. Jerry dropped the ball on the Roy deal but what GM has been perfect..let me know when you find him..most of you guys (even Boys fans) in this chat are clueless.

  53. roy your days are numbered and ilove the pick.jerry wont pay 3 guys big money miles is going to get paid,dez is going to get paid and roy gets paid one will eventually be gone maybe not this year but one wont be on the team after 2010 season

  54. I love how every retard fan listed their teams wr’s like people are supposed to be impressed lol

  55. You still don’t have megatron aka Calvin Johnson the best reciever in the NFL. Yes i said it now hate on it, but I believe he is the best wr in the league.

  56. To those bagging on Jason Witten;
    Realize that in addition to being arguably the best blocking TE among the elite receiving TEs, Jason has almost 6,000 yards in receptions and yet he’s still just 27 years old.
    As to the Miles Austin/Desean Jackson debate, give me the guy who’s 6’3″ and 215 versus the guy who’s 6’0″ and a buck seventy five. I do give Jackson the edge in the “who can best run their mouth on Twitter” category.

  57. @this class sucks
    The Niners??? Are you serious??? If you think Dallas was disappointed with 600 yards and 7 TDs from Roy last year, how do you think Miami felt about 450 yards and ONE TD from Ginn Jr? Oh wait, we know. They dumped his ass. Ginn has 5 TDs total for his career.
    Not alot of difference between Bryant and Crabtree and tell exactly what have Jones and Morgan proven. Give me Austin and Crayton over those two any day.

  58. Uh.
    Drew Brees
    Marquis Colston
    Devery Henderson
    Robert Meachem
    Lance Moore
    Jeremy Shockey
    Reggie Bush(More of a receiver out of the backfield)
    Greatest Show on Turf part 2, best offense the past 3 of 4 years, highest scoring offense AND SUPERBOWL CHAMPS.
    Dez is your replacement Roy.

  59. SWITZBEATS
    you are a moron you say stats don’t lie?
    Witten – the “hall of famer” 2009 stats
    93 rec 1030 yards 2 TD
    Celek
    76 rec 971 yards 8 TD
    I’ll take celeks 8 TD over the hall of famers 2.

  60. TEXANS are the number one receiving team and nothing has changed.
    Andre Johnson is a beast and the best WR in the NFL and behind him we have:
    Kevin Walter
    Jacoby Jones
    David Anderson
    Owen Daniels
    Andre Davis
    Plus the other TE’s and rookie WR’s
    Go Texans, beating the cowgirls this year!
