When the regular season starts, you won’t get many Redskins offering advice to many Cowboys.

But for now, Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III doesn’t mind helping Dallas rookie receiver Terrance Williams with his transition to the NFL.

The former Baylor teammates remain close, and RG3 told the Cowboys’ third-round pick what to expect when he gets to camp.

“[He said] just continue to do you and don’t change the way you are,” Williams said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “Be happy with your capabilities and show what you can do. I just really took that to heart the most.”

If it’s just ability, Williams should be in good shape.

His teammates have already taken notice of a guy whose numbers jump off the page.

Williams was good when he Griffin was throwing it to him at Baylor, better last year. He caught 97 passes for 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns last year, leaving the Cowboys pleasantly surprised he was available in the third round.

“Well, I was surprised, and I think a lot of people were surprised,” Cowboys wide receivers coach Derek Dooley said. “And then of course, as a position coach, I was hopeful that the organization felt the same way that I did. Fortunately, we did.”

Whether Williams is able to make an immediate impact remains to be seen, but he’s certainly opened enough eyes that he’ll have a chance.
