ESPN has reported that Roy Williams has been traded from Detroit to Dallas in exchange for 1st round, 3rd round and 6th round picks in the 2009 draft, the Lions also giving a 7th round pick.
Roy Williams is in a contract year and hasn’t been playing very well. Jerry Jones is supposedly trying finalize a new 5-year contract extension with Williams to keep him in Dallas. You have to assume that it’ll get done since the Cowboys gave up so much and since Williams is a Texas native and going from a terrible team to a perennial contender.
Dallas with Williams, TO and Crayton as it’s WR crew is a pretty scary lineup, at least once Romo gets back, but damn they gave up a ton in those 3 picks for a guy that they are going to have to pay a ton. Chances are they could have landed him on the open market next year.
