Terrell Owens is not getting interest but former Cowboys WR Roy Williams has a tryout with Texans

While Terrell Owens is still trying to draw up interest from NFL teams another former Cowboys receiver, Roy Williams, is in Houston for a tryout with the Texans on Thursday, his agent Ben Dogra confirmed.

A nine-year veteran, Williams caught 37 passes and two touchdowns for the Bears last season and could give the Texans a much needed veteran presence at third receiver.

Behind starters Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter, the Texans do not have a single receiver on the roster who has caught an NFL pass.

Third-round draft pick DeVier Posey and fourth-round pick Keshawn Martin have potential but are unproven and Posey struggled in minicamp.

Williams, a former Longhorn star and Odessa, is excited about a second opportunity to return to his home state and play pro football. He says he is healthy and in great shape after working out summer in Dallas and plans to make the most of his tryout with the Texas.

Williams was a disappointment in two plus seasons with the Cowboys, catching just 94 passes and 13 touchdowns after coming over from the Detroit in 2008 for a first, third and sixth round pick.

He was cut after the 2010 season.

With T.O. on the roster, Dallas was a TOUGH team. In 2007, they were TOUGH on offense. They weren't SISSIES in white jerseys like they are now. T.O. adds much needed RUGGEDNESS to the team.

the NFL needs to end this embargo on Terell.its becoming quite ridiculous. they know they need his talents but keep dissing hime. if you're going to hire him, better do it now cuz he's not getting younger.

Roy is like the wino on the street corner that promises, if you will just give him some money he will buy some food. Yet every single time (team) he takes that money and purchases wine.

When the Cowboys had T.O they had good teams in 06 and 07. Dallas need to pick him up and see if he has another 2 or 3 years in him.

hope t.o gets picked up by somebody this year love to see his magic back on the field

T.O.helped the Cowboys win football games. I watch the Cowboys in hope that they WIN. Where would Romo be without T.O. Go back look at the games. Most exciting times since the nineties.

Why are we even wasting ink on stories about Williams and Owens. Please stop with the foolishness these two clowns are the worst of what the cowboys ever did. Maybe they can open a car wash together.
