Jerry loves him some receivers, and in an effort to find the next Michael he has mortgaged everything up to but not including his homes. Maybe he has, because we know he has mortgaged so much in an effort to land the Cowboys their next stud WR.
Maybe Dez Bryant is the guy.
Just as it was not with Joey Galloway, it is not with Roy Williams. Jerry's decision to cut Longhorn Roy assures his tenure with the 'Boys will go down as one of the least productive for the amount surrendered in recent history. More so than Joey G'.
Compare their two careers, and what the Cowboys gave up to acquire both busts. Warning - this is painful reading.
In Feb. of 2000, Jerry dealt his first round pick in the 2000 and '01 draft to Seattle for Galloway, who in 1995 was the eighth overall pick in the NFL draft.
Galloway was 29 when Dallas acquired him, and in the first game of the 2000 season he blew out his knee in the fourth quarter of a blowout loss against the Eagles, and his season was over. He did catch four passes with a TD in that game. So he had that going for him, which is nice.
Galloway went on to play three full years from 2001 to 2003 for the Cowboys catching 147 passes for 2,279 yards with 11 TDs.
After the 2003 season, the Cowboys traded Galloway to Tampa for a favorite of coach Bill Parcells', Keyshawn Johnson.
In Oct. of 2008, Jerry dealt the Cowboys' 2009 first round pick, a third-round pick and a sixth-round pick to the Lions for the former No. 7 overall pick of the '05 draft.
Roy was 27 at the time the Cowboys traded for him and gave him a five-year $45 million contract; more than $25 million was guaranteed.
Let's see ... in 40 games with the Boys, Roy caught 94 passes for 1,324 yards and 13 TDs.
He was cut on Tuesday.
The Final Analysis
Forget the contracts, just considering how much was given away to acquire these two former top-10 picks and they both equally sucked.
Roy made it to two playoff games for the Cowboys, whereas JG made one.
That said, JG was the better player and did more in his time with the Cowboys ... whatever that's worth.
