Default Roy Williams, S, has been released

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...gets-his-wish/

Quote:
With the pad of pink slips already out of the desk drawer for receiver Terrell Owens, NBC Dallas-Ft. Worth reports that the Dallas Cowboys used a second sheet on safety Roy Williams. (Not receiver Roy Williams, Sid. Safety Roy Williams.)

The move comes two days after Williams gave the team a “trade me or cut me” ultimatum, and presumably after the team exhausted all potential trade opportunities.

As of last week, the Cowboys were actively shopping the seven-year veteran, but could find no takers.
Any before anybody asks, "Should we sign him?"; hell no is the answer.

Hell no! Horrible in coverage. He needs to try and move to LB.

All he does is get burned and then horse collar tackle someone and breaks their ankle.

If we were still playing Richard Smith defense would've been a perfect fit. Guy hits like a mack truck but doesn't cover.

I think his career imploded largely due to the move to the 3-4 and being asked to do more in coverage as opposed to playing in the box. Which is what he does really well.

Default Re: Roy Williams, S, has been released

I wouldn't mind putting him in the box as a situational safety in run support....couple him with a ballhawk in centerfield and you could be okay.

Default Roy Williams

What would you guys think about us giving Roy Williams (SS not WR) a look? I really believe that if used correctly, similar to how the Colts use Bob Sanders, he could still be a very good SS. Should we give him a look?

I understand everyone's feelings and yes, he is awful in coverage, but I also think a lot of it has to do with how the Cowgirls have been using him. They constantly tried dropping him back into coverage instead of allowing him to be like a deep roving LB. I personally believe he would be a good compliment to Eugene Wilson.

Default Re: Roy Williams, S, has been released

We need a Strong Safety bad he has gone to 5 pro bowls over the past 7 seasons and he is only 28 years old. I think as the cowboys changed from 4-3 defense to a 3-4 defense the scheme didn't fit his style of play. Roy is better suited to play in 4-3 attacking style defense and yes I think he still has a lot left in the tank I say bring him in for a look.

Roy is better suited to play as a WLB and we already have a young slightly undersized WLB. We don't play (at least so far) conventional in the box SS and roaming FS. We play almost interchangeable and that ain't Williams. OD would lick his chops at the idea of RW trying to cover him.

With all the screaming you guys do about not having safety with coverage skills, and you want bring in Roy Williams?

He may be good with the horse-collar, but he can't cover the toilet lid with his own ass.
