Deion Sanders has been highly critical of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams in the past. Sanders was quick to say he felt the traded favored the Detroit Lions and that Dallas came out on the short end. Williams has fallen short of expectations, but while he hopes to win the fans over he already has Sanders singing a different tune.
Sanders was talking about the Cowboys 2010 first-round selection, Dez Bryant, on The Ben & Skin Show but changed the topic over to Williams and said he believed Williams would live up to his $9 million this season.
“You know why I’m betting on him this year?” Sanders said. “Because his back is against the wall, he has to perform and I think he has that inside of him that knows, ‘Man, if I don’t do it, this is it. This may be the end of my career.’ And I’m betting on him. I think he’s going to go and make the plays.
“He’s going to make the plays that are called to him. He isn’t going to catch 90 or 100 balls, because they’re not going to call his number that many times. He’s going to be on the backside of the double teams that probably Miles will warrant or Witten will warrant, and he’s going to have to win one-on-ones. But I’m betting this year he’s going to win it.
“He’s going to come out and he’s going have a new swagger … because he knows this could be it.”
