* TE Martellus Bennett has come under fire for a recent YouTube video on his own MartyBTV channel that features Bennett and his brothers engaged in contests to see who could eat watermelon and chicken and drink Kool-Aid the fastest. Bennett said he wasn't being racist. He was just having a little fun and being himself.

"We're like, man, we're eating every stereotype," Bennett said. "Let's see who can eat the chicken fastest. ... It was all fun and games.

"Stereotypes are something we deal with every day. If we make a joke about it, that's even funnier."

* WR Roy Williams has been scrutinized heavily since being traded to Dallas last season and then becoming the focal point of the receiver corps after the departure of Terrell Owens. He said he is not talking to the media this season.

"It's just that no matter what I say, it's always going to get turned around and be pointed in a negative way," Williams said. "So I'm just going to shut up and play ball."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "He has to be a vocal leader. He has to be the one and go out and take command of this team. He is the leader of this team. I think he's done that, especially this offseason. He's been more vocal. He's going out and working hard, doing extra with Roy (Williams) and some of the other receivers. It's showing. Those guys are getting on the same page. Hopefully we can start off and we're clicking from the jump." -- S Ken Hamlin on Tony Romo.
