D.J. Williams may be new to the Washington, D.C., area, but the Washington Redskins tight end has a strong fan base that will cheer him on wherever he goes.

A fan base so strong that even lifelong Cowboys fans are eager to see him excel in the burgundy and gold.

Williams returned to football this week after a stint as a morning show host in hometown of Little Rock, Ark.

After finishing each show, Williams would head to the gym determined to remain in shape and confident he'd get another call.

He did. 

Tonight will be a return to game action.

"I'm ready to go," Williams told Redskins.com. "I didn't realize how much it meant until I was away from the game for a year. You tend to take things for granted until they're gone and I was in that situation. Even just being in the locker room or being at practice. Or even if we condition one day, I'll be happy to do it because the things I used to hate were the things I missed the most when I was gone. I just need to keep my excitement to a cool level during game day."
