Default Roy Williams wants to come back to Texas...

Lions pair wants out of Detroit
Posted: Wednesday December 05, 2007 07:23AM ET

Neither player will say it publicly, but two of Detroits best offensive players -- receiver Roy Williams and running back Kevin Jones -- are counting the days until they can leave Detroit. While the losing seasons have taken their toll on the two players, there are other reasons why they want to leave the Lions organization and their motives arent exactly the same. Williams and Jones, who were both first-round draft picks in 2004, will become unrestricted free agents after next season and sources close to the players say theyve had enough and want out. At one time, Williams embraced the teaching of coordinator Mike Martz and even endured his sometimes abrasive coaching style, but that situation has changed. Williams has offered thinly veiled criticisms recently of Detroits offensive game plan and his role in it.Still, the overriding factor for Williams is that he simply wants to go home or get closer to it. The one thing you learn about Williams very quickly is that he loves Texas and would love to return to his home state.

man, WR has to be the one area that we actually have depth...but I'd take Roy W. in a heartbeat...of course, he's probably talking about the Cowboys.

I would assume that (Cowboys), since we've never not had one of those losing seasons he's tired of.

Andre Johnson and Roy Williams side by side would be sick.

"The one thing you learn about Williams very quickly is that he loves Texas and would love to return to his home state."
****************************
I dunno if anybody else remembers, but Charley Casserly desperately wanted Williams to come out early, after his junior year, so the Texans could take him.
Had he done that it's very likely the Texans would have taken him instead of
AJ with their #3 pick in 2003. Obviously we've been happy with AJ, but
the Texans really wanted Williams more than anybody back in '03 as recall except perhaps Willis McGahee. But McGhee blew his knee out in a post-season bowl game and instantly became too much of a risk for the #3 overall.

Roy Williams next to AJ would be sick ..... for the four or five games that he'd be healthy.

He's not that injury prone, AJ has missed more games than him actually.

I think you're right, because we played the Pack on Sunday Night, and Dre pretty much made the pro-bowl against the Vikes. It would be awesome if we got Roy and AJ together, imagine the possibilities. But, I think he might be inclined to rejoin his old college buddy, I hope not though.

He doesn't really miss a lot of games, but he always has a sprained ankle, pulled hammy, or similar. When he isn't dinged, he's exceptional.

While I would certainly welcome him, it would be more or less piling onto our WR depth. Walter and Davis have really stepped up and helped form us into a team that passes the ball well (when the o-line is giving humpty-dumpty enough time). I would say that WR is the last place that we need to spend cap dollars on.

I love the job Walter and Davis have done, but to pass up Roy Williams for them? Hes pretty damn good. Just my opinion.

Well, the thing is that he would be expensive. We have a lot of holes to patch up in the offseason, and to use the cap room to build up the one solid department we have would seem unwise to me. Now, if we could squeeze him in there without cutting into our offseason needs, then I would certainly be open to snagging him.

He will go to the Boys. Terrell Owen's replacement (Owens IS getting up there in years ya know).

Shame..it would be very interesting to see AJ and Williams side by side. But we have so many more pressing needs.

There's been no decline in Terrell's play..he wouldn't replace him. T. O. may be getting up in years but he's also one of the most if not the most well conditioned athlete in the league. He's got a number of years left.

If anything he'd replace Crayton who I believe will be a free agent next year...

He also isnt going to be a FA till nest off season, if I read it correctly. After that, you make a competitive offer but dont break the bank. If you can get him for average money, then he would be a huge upgrade over Walter and Davis.
