BOURBONNAIS, Ill. — After a brief appearance in the preseason opener, new Bears receiver Roy Williams is trying to do all he can to gain the favor of quarterback Jay Cutler.
‘‘I’m just trying to be where I’m supposed to be when I’m supposed to be there, and not fooling him. That’s our No. 1 goal,’’ Williams said. ‘‘And I’m just trying to talk to him off of the field, trying to be buddy-buddy, trying to get a couple balls. That’s how it works.’’ Williams winked, emphasizing his playful comment before concluding, ‘‘He kind of gives me the cold shoulder every once in a while.’’
While the Bears have high hopes for Cutler-to-Williams, that duo hasn’t produced many highlights during training camp. Still, Cutler is excited about Williams’ development and acclimation.
‘‘You can see more glimpses of Roy Williams each and every day on film,” Cutler said. ‘‘So hopefully by Monday, he’ll be ready to go.’’
