    I wouldn't do it, but discuss if you would want him.

    There may soon be only one Roy Williams on the Dallas Cowboys roster.

    The Cowboys have contacted NFL teams trying to trade Williams, a five-time Pro Bowl safety in his seven seasons in Dallas, FOXSports.com has learned. If a deal can't be reached, Williams could be released to clear room for the Cowboys under the salary cap.

    Williams played in only three games last season because of forearm injuries. Although regarded as a strong tackler, Williams has struggled in coverage and is no longer considered a good fit for Dallas' 3-4 scheme under head coach Wade Phillips.

    Williams, 28, is scheduled to earn a $4.4 million base salary in 2009. He is under contract through 2010.

    Would not trade for him.


    If he got cut, then I would bring him in at a minimum contract and see if he makes the team.

    Yes, I know that he can be a liability in coverage.
