No regrets about Roy Williams
It was one year ago Tuesday that the Cowboys traded three draft picks to Detroit for former Longhorns receiver Roy Williams. They also gave him a $9 million annual salary.
In return, the Cowboys have received 30 catches and just two touchdowns from Williams in 14 games since the bye week trade in 2008.
Williams has also been hampered by leg and rib injuries that have limited his effectiveness. Yet owner Jerry Jones said he has no regrets about the trade.
"I'm glad we got him because we got where we want to be - a young wide receiver in Miles Austin on the way up and a chance to stretch the field," Jones said on his weekly radio show, "and then Roy Williams as your No.1 receiver with a chance to have a great year because of how hard he's been working."
