Cowboys' Terrance Williams says Morris Claiborne went ‘a tad bit overboard’

Things get chippy sometimes during training camp and things got a little heated during practices at the Dallas Cowboys’ camp. Second-year wide receiver Terrance Williams and former first-round pick corner back Morris Claiborne got into it at practice.

Williams felt like Claiborne went too far.

“I’m all for playing football, but I just feel like sometimes if it goes a tad bit overboard to where I feel like I’m about to get hurt, then I’ve got to just tell him, ‘Lighten up a tad bit, but still do your job,’” Williams said. “But just don’t try to hurt me. That’s all.”

Williams added: “I feel like if I’m about to get hurt then that’s when I kind of draw the line.”

Williams did say that this didn’t affect his friendship or relationship with Claiborne. For his part, Claiborne didn’t see his actions as over the line.

“It just got a little bit competitive,” Claiborne said. “He didn’t like the way I was touching him. I don’t know what else I was supposed to have done, just let him run his route? But it gets like that sometimes out here. We’re still teammates, we’re still buddies. It’s a physical game. In 1-on-1s it definitely gets physical out there. It was good competition.”
