Ladies, Line Up For Roy Williams

Illustration for article titled Ladies, Line Up For Roy Williams

Lions wide receiver Roy Williams is making $1,515,000 this year, which is actually a little less than you might think, considering Jon Kitna is being paid $5 million. Therefore, Williams, under such obvious financial constraints, has to keep a close eye on his bottom line. That is to say: He's amazingly cheap.


Check out Williams' eye for fine style and the best way to treat a lady.

I am cheap, I'm a cheap date. Get you some McDonalds, with some cheese on it and I'm just really cheap, man. I'm very low key, I like to stay home. I like to go bowling on Monday nights and I go to the casino every once and awhile. Other than that, you won't see Mr. Williams out at all.

There's no such thing as a tip. But I am really polite and I say 'Thank you sir.' ... The pizza man knows, when he comes to my address, he's coming for free. I might just take [a date] to the casino and get her a free buffet. If I did take a date out to a nice place, I'd take her to a nice place, like a Red Lobster or something. It wouldn't be Morton's or nothing like that.

For the record, Red Lobster is vastly underrated, particularly on that budget.
