Jerry Jones Downplays Sam Williams Arrest : The Dallas Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones’ reaction to Sam Williams’ arrest is confusing.
Williams was arrested on Sunday for carrying a handgun without authority and having a controlled narcotic, according to several Frisco Police Department sources.
The Cowboys told Fox News Digital that they know about the occurrence and are talking to Williams about it during the legal process. When reporters questioned the situation, Jones unusually brought up Williams’ off-field issue from the previous season. The defensive end was ticketed for reckless driving after speeding 100 mph in a 55-mph zone. This led to a vehicle accident that totaled his car. No one was seriously wounded in the accident, but Williams missed a game due to concussion treatment.
Jones minimizes the problem when discussing Williams’ conduct. Jones told The Athletic, “First of all, I’m seeing that he’s growing up, which is more often than not the case.” “This seems pointless, but he’s improving.” Earlier this year, he was pulled and stopped at 66 mph. Thus, he is 34 mph slower than a year earlier. Getting from 98 to 66 is a good move. We shall continue as needed. Will figure things out.”
Jones doesn’t think Williams’ arrest will affect his playing time this season. Williams was detained early this year. Jones told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, “I don’t think this will affect his time on the field.” “And I know everything,” she said. I have nothing to hide.” This lesson is crucial for everyone.
Williams may have a weapon and a controlled substance, both low-level felonies. The accusations call controlled drug possession a low-level offense. He might be fined or expelled from the league under the player code of conduct.
Williams and the Cowboys returned to Texas after Sunday’s preseason game against Seattle. After arriving in Texas, police arrested Williams. The Cowboys drafted the 6-foot-4, 265-pound Ole Miss edge rusher in the second round 2022. He played 15 games off the bench in his debut season. Four sacks, 22 tackles, and one forced loss. He was selected from Ole Miss in the second round.
