Default Bryant refuses to carry Williams pads

Quote:
"I'm not doing it," Bryant said. "I feel like I was drafted to play football, not carry another player's pads."

Does this lead to serious dissension in the locker room?

He'll carry the pads or he'll catch them across the chin.

Default Re: Bryant refuses to carry Williams pads

I would have done the same thing during my playing days. Williams is lazy, soft and overpaid, no respect should be given to that type of player. I bet Bryant won some points, discreetly, with guys in the locker room.

Hold on, I thought we were talking about the other Roy Williams .. you know, the one that has the opportunity to jack him up on the practice field. Yeah, I agree with him if it was the WR.

Default Re: Bryant refuses to carry Williams pads

It's a common practice for rookies to hold a vets pads. It doesn't matter if you're a first round pick that is earmarked for a starting role, you'll hold the backup veteran's pads.

I'm sure Brian Cushing had no problem holding Chaun Thompson's pads when asked last season.

NFL rookie hazing has purpose

Quote:
Hey, rookie.


You've made it through training camp. Yo on the roster. You're cashing a paycheck. Now listen up. Respect the veterans. Do what they tell you to do. And by all means, put up with the hazing. Because it's not going to stop until you've made it through a full season.
************************************************** ******

Quote:
The veterans said Cushing was a good sport about it all.

"Sampson wouldn't let them cut his hair, but I think Cushing is going to be just fine without it," right tackle Eric Winston said. "I think he even looks meaner than before, too, so I think that's going to suit him well, especially in this heat."

"I thought it was pretty impressive for him to grow that crop and let those guys do that to him last night," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "I know one thing—they know he's with them. I know that. It was pretty impressive."
LINK


BTW, did everyone that discussed Roy Williams as being deserving of such disrespect fail to read the entire description of Dez's player inclusion???

Quote:
According to the rookie first-round pick, Roy Williams and the other veteran receivers can carry their own shoulder pads after practice.
I predict this is not a maneuver that will endear him to most of his team mates, coaches or GM/owner, and is only a peek into what the future brings.

I know its tradition but Roy Williams has to know this guy is going to be one of the reasons that Dallas cuts his ass. I'm down with you ....a soft overpaid and overated player shouldn't even attempt to ask a high profile rookie to carry his pads.

Default Re: Bryant refuses to carry Williams pads

This type of "hazing" really does not mean spit, but falls under the category of just do it to make your life easier. Any embarassment or disrespect is temporary, not understanding that there are 50 some + other guys you are pissing off lasts much longer.

That said, if Bryant turns out to be that damn good, everyone will get over this.

I don't see what's the big deal. It's a right of passage (sorta). All rookies, especially first rounders, do it. Dez is being a diva.

Dez should have been smart enough to go over and carry someone else's pads and just ignore Williams. Shows respect for the tradition and that he thinks Williams isn't worth the effort, which he isn't.

If all is ignored and Bryant turns out to be that damn good, everyone will have to get over this past incident, because they will have to be dealing with even more grandiose issues which were caused by letting this first incident slide.
