cut into Howard’s snaps.
Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams was arrested on a charge of public intoxication early Saturday after police responded to an accident
involving his car and found Williams riding an electric bicycle on a road near his home.
Police in the Dallas suburb of Frisco said Williams' Lamborghini left a roadway and struck a light pole near the team's practice facility around
4:45 a.m. Saturday. Police say the driver had left the scene. Officers found Williams while investigating the crash.
Williams was released from jail on bond on the misdemeanor intoxication charge.
In a statement released by his attorney Adidas
Jonathan Quick Jersey , Williams said an officer he had met previously arrested him without performing a sobriety test. Williams said he was
returning to the scene on a scooter to meet a tow truck driver.
The attorney, Chip Lewis, disputed the police account of Williams' vehicle hitting a light pole.
"Terrance did not hit a light pole and there was no light pole even near the vehicle," Lewis said. "Secondly, his arrest was wholly unrelated to
the traffic accident."
Williams said he veered into the center median to avoid a collision when a man driving a vehicle in front of him hit his brakes. The two exchanged
insurance information and a neighbor drove Williams home, where the receiver said he called for a tow truck.
"I have always been an upstanding citizen and handled the situation the best way I know how," Williams said. "I apologize if I should have handled
it a little bit differently."
The 28-year-old Williams was expected to miss all the offseason workouts after breaking his right foot in January and having surgery. The Cowboys
released Dez Bryant in a cost-cutting move while signing two free agents and drafting two more receivers.
The Cowboys declined to comment.
The Minnesota Vikings are working through a quarterback quandary this offseason, with three pending free agents.
They have ample space under the salary cap, around $50 million Bobby Ryan Jersey , and an unfulfilled desire to produce a long-term answer at the position after years of questions.
Coach Mike Zimmer expressed caution about the strategy of spending their way out of the uncertainty.
”I think it’s really, really important that we understand that we’ve won 40 games in the last four years and we’ve done this by being pretty
good on defense for the most part,” Zimmer said Thursday at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis. ”This year the offense was much better. Part
of the reason we’ve been winning games is because we’ve been staying in games on defense, we’ve been a smart team, all those things.”
About half of the quarterbacks in the league are making an annual average of $20 million, and the standard prices will only increase this month with
Kirk Cousins leading the list of soon-to-be free agents. Zimmer, for his part, pumped the brakes on the notion of trying to win such a bidding
”I want to be really careful about taking away from our strength … because of financial reasons,” Zimmer said.
Staying in step with what general manager Rick Spielman said Wednesday Cameron Artis-Payne Jersey , Zimmer told
reporters the Vikings are still assessing the pros and cons of Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater with the market set to open on March
14. Zimmer said all three quarterbacks are ”definitely” under consideration.
Breaking with the guarded style of his boss, Zimmer pushed the candor button at the podium. He acknowledged the realities and reservations of each of
the three players he’s had as the primary starter over the past three years.
”It’s important for myself and Rick and the organization to pick the right guy that is going to help us continue to move forward,” Zimmer said.
”If we don’t do that, then I’ll probably be fired.”
Keenum took over after Bradford hurt his knee following the season opener and enjoyed a career-best performance, helping the Vikings reach the NFC
championship game. Before 2017, he’d just been a backup. Several times during the year, Zimmer hinted at mild skepticism about Keenum’s ability to
keep up such success.
”Is he the guy when he was at Houston or the Rams, or is he the guy who played for us?” Zimmer said Jake Rudock Jersey , repeating a similar line of
questioning for Bradford, who didn’t experience much success early in his career with St. Louis.
Bradford’s biggest issue is the knee, which Zimmer described as a ”degenerative” problem. There’s clearly no perfect answer for the Vikings in
this complicated situation.
”At the end of the day, it’s a guess and a hunch,” Zimmer said.
Bridgewater presents the least-expensive option but also the least-known, considering he last started a meaningful game more than two years ago. The
amount of time he missed while rehabilitating his knee injury has made it difficult to evaluate his ability to lead the team for the next decade, as
the Vikings originally intended when they drafted him in the first round in 2014.
”It’s really hard to evaluate just in practice. We have to go back a lot with Teddy on what he’s done in the past, him as a person, his work
ethic http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/montravius-adams-jersey , all those things. Him not playing for two years and not being
able to see him play in live situations, that’s concerning a little bit,” Zimmer said. ”But I love the guy. He’s a great kid, great
competitor, a winner.”
