Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Cowboys have traded for Lions wide receiver Roy Williams.
UPDATE: The trade is official and being reported by several media outlets.
Here's what it took to get Williams so you can decide if the Eagles had this much to offer and should have pulled the trigger:
A first-, third- and sixth-round pick in the 2009 draft.
The Lions also included a seventh-rounder in 2009.
Rumors had been swirling today about the possibility of the Chiefs dealing tight end Tony Gonzalez. Both the Giants and the Eagles had been mentioned as possible destinations, but he's not going anywhere, Herm Edwards announced at a news conference.
In other news...
Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones has been suspended indefinitely. Didn't see that one coming, huh? According to the Dallas Morning-News, 'indefinitely' means at least four games. Jones had an altercation with a team bodyguard last week, which the league described as an alcohol-related physical altercation.
The Redskins have reportedly signed running back Shaun Alexander.
1. Colleague and Birds fan Mike Potter after he heard the news: "How are they going to spin this one? 'We believe the acquisition of White is as big, if not bigger, than the Cowboys' acquisition of Roy Williams.'" I think many of you probably share his thoughts.
2. Sympathies to my buddy Lemur, a Penn State grad and an Eagles fan. Unfortunately, he received a Hunt authentic jersey from his girlfriend a couple years ago since he was such a big fan of the running back in college. Said Lemur in an e-mail: "I feel sick."
