Roy Williams has played for three teams in the last four years, going from the Lions to the Cowboys to the Bears. In 2012 he’d like to stay put.
Williams, who becomes an unrestricted free agent in March, told Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times that he wants to re-sign with the Bears.
“Most definitely,” Williams said. “I’m just trying to make plays. It’s a great group of guys, a great group of receivers. I think we all complement each other. But I don’t run this team. I do what they tell me to do. If they tell me to go home, I go home. If they tell me to sign this piece of paper, I’ll sign it.”
Williams has had a rocky first season in Chicago, mixing in some big plays with some bad drops. Among the Bears’ wide receivers, Williams is second only to Johnny Knox in both catches (33) and yards (447), although that says as much about the Bears’ struggling passing game as it does about Williams. If the Bears are serious about gearing up for a Super Bowl run with Jay Cutler next year, they’d be wise to improve the receiving corps, rather than bring back this year’s crew.
