Another Roy Williams in Dallas

Owner Jerry Jones has three receivers on his wish list of possible veteran additions to the Cowboys via a draft day trade _ Chad Johnson, Anquan Boldin and Roy Williams.
Johnson has already stated his desire to come to the Cowboys.
Suffice it to say Williams, who grew up in Odessa and played at Texas, would love nothing more than to come back to his home state.
According to a source, Williams  "wants to play in Dallas."
For the record,  Williams wouldn't mind finishing his career in Detroit.
But he understands the economics of his situation and realizes something might have to give _ despite statements by the Lions front office that it has no plans of trading Williams.
And if Williams is not in Detroit, his wish of possible destinations is headed the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source close to him.
Williams is in the final year of his rookie contract. The Lions have not talked to him and his agent about a contract extension and it will cost the team roughly $9 million to franchise him in 2009. With Calvin Johnson already on the roster, its unlikely they will pay Williams' asking price for a long term extension. So their option is to trade him now when they possible could get something for him or let him walk a free agent.
