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.
