Cowboys cut Roy Williams too

Cowboys cut Roy Williams too


Eagles fans, looks like you are going to have to find some new villains when the Cowboys come to town in 2009.

Somehow, I think you'll manage.

Earlier this morning, we wrote about the Cowboys cutting ties with Terrell Owens.

Now, Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning-News reports that the team has also released safety Roy Williams. Probably best known to this group for his horse-collar tackles and struggles in coverage, Williams was the team's first-round draft pick in 2002.

Per Archer, the Cowboys had been trying to trade Williams, but were unsuccessful.

As for Owens, it seems like everyone is doing their best to come up with a possible next destination for him.'s Peter King says the Raiders and Redskins come to mind.

Mike Lombardi of the National Football Post suggests the Raiders also.

Mike Florio of is thinking the Redskins.

Before people could even speculate that the Giants would be interested, Mike Garafolo of The Newark Star-Ledger reports that New York doesn't want anything to do with him.

Earlier this morning, I wrote that the Raiders were the first team that popped into my head. But what if they are not interested? Normally it's easy to find a home for a receiver who had 10 touchdowns the previous season, but Owens is a unique case (as if I needed to tell you that). Despite what some might think, the Eagles are generally a respected organization, and look how things ended here with T.O. Bill Parcells' approach in Dallas with Owens obviously didn't register. And neither did the laid-back nature of Wade Phillips. We haven't even mentioned San Francisco.

This could get interesting. I wonder if it T.O. will have a harder time finding a team to bite than some might think.
