Real Talk on Roy Williams. He's a big-bodied veteran who has a great chance of getting into camp with the Texans

Interesting. I wonder how much speed he's lost over the years? He had one really good year for Detroit.

Interesting. I've been a proponent of adding another vet wide receiver. No harm in giving him a shot.

He still has a good yds per catch stat.........15.7, 14.3 and 13.7 respectively over the past 3 years..................BUT...............

Roy Williams' long history of drops

August, 24, 2011
Quote:


Case of 'The Dropsies'

Despite ranking third in targets among Cowboys pass-catchers over the past three seasons, Roy Williams struggled to produce in Dallas due to an inability to come down with the ball when targeted. Williams has dropped a higher percentage of passes than all other players with at least 200 targets since 2008 and has the third-lowest catch percentage over the same span.


**********************************
Past 3 Seasons

Player % Drops

Roy Williams 8.2 (19 drops/231 targets)
Dwayne Bowe 8.1
Ted Ginn, Jr. 7.5
Dustin Keller 7.4
Bryant Johnson 7.2
>>min. 200 targets
***********************************


***********************************

Unreliable Targets: Lowest Catch Percentage

Past 3 Seasons

Player Pct.

Braylon Edwards 46.6
Bryant Johnson 47.3
Roy Williams 48.1 (111 rec/231 targets)
Nate Washington 49.6
Terrell Owens 51.0
>>min. 200 targets

He was allergic to blocking and finishing routes in college, and has demonstrated alligator arms in the league. I would venture it is a favor or veteran body, rather than a season long investment.

maybe 76 can give us a break down if his drops were all on him or Qb or?

At wide receiver, the bears sign Roy Williams, who admits he is not in playing shape.


Maybe getting in shape should be his first priority?

Is he the one on Storage Wars: Texas? If so, he should probably stick to football related activities as he isn't very good at buying storage units.

That was a year ago. He now says he's in great shape.

Terrell Owens is not getting interest but former Cowboys WR Roy Williams has a tryout with Texans

Quote:
Williams, a former Longhorn star and Odessa, is excited about a second opportunity to return to his home state and play pro football. He says he is healthy and in great shape after working out summer in Dallas and plans to make the most of his tryout with the Texas.

How could anyone be happy about Roy Williams potentially making his way onto this team. That dude has been a disaster on 3 different teams and has displayed a poor work ethic and an ego to go with it. So what if he has a big body. That doesn't mean zilch when you suck. I'd take TO's old ass over Roy any day of the week, and I hate TO.

He's probably just a camp body, and motivation to the other guys to start working their asses off because you can be replaced. At least we've got nothing to lose by giving him a shot in training camp. Maybe he's finally found some motivation to play the game hard.

I'm with you on this one Tex. If I was going to take a guy with question marks why would you pick Roy over Plaxico or Braylon Edwards. I get that it's just a tryout, but this one doesn't make much sense to me. Mike Sims-Walker must have really been terrible if they passed over him to bring Roy in for a tryout.

Motivational move by Kubiak to scare the draftees into working harder..."or else..."

Have never thought he was as good as people made him out to be. He's a mouth who can't back it up on the field.

This is what happens when Dwigit Jones went AWOL on us: Kubiak fills his spot with Roy Williams. It's like Kubiak just HAS to have a WR project to dabble with. LOL.

If it's between Roy Williams and Bryant Johnson as the Chron says, I'd no doubt, 1000% make no mistake sure as ______ go with Johnson. He knows the offense from a year ago and can be even better with a whole Texans training camp this time around. Williams is done. Better to take a flyer on Bryant Johnson.

The Texans do not need to be wasting time looking at Roy Williams.

The guy is entirely too inconsistent.
