Wide receiver Roy Williams has been with the Chicago Bears and practicing for about two weeks now. And according to him, he’s still not in football shape. So what kind of shape was he in when he reported to camp?
He was asked about his condition after a couple observers noticed him not going full speed.
“Ooh, yeah…About that. How many more weeks have we got?” he said. He was then told that he’d have about two more weeks. He said, “Yeah, I’ll be ready by then.”
“I’m a firm believer in no matter what you do in the offseason, nothing will get you football ready except for playing football,” Williams said. “That’s what I believe. It’s tough. You can run all the hills and mountains that you want to, but when you get out here and play for four seconds and jog back to the huddle, that’s what gets you in shape.”
There is probably an ounce of truth to that, but we hardly peg Williams as a guy who would bust his behind on his own in a locked out offseason. He’s the top target on the Bears now with Greg Olsen gone and no other receivers of note on the roster. Still, be careful when drafting him in your fantasy league.
