Oldskool Posted February 26, 2009 Share Posted February 26, 2009 Captain Hosetackle could be leaving Dallas.. :secret: http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/02/26/report-cowboys-could-cut-safety-roy-williams/ REPORT: COWBOYS COULD CUT SAFETY ROY WILLIAMS Posted by Aaron Wilson on February 26, 2009, 2:33 p.m. EST The Dallas Cowboys may cut ties with former Pro Bowl safety Roy Williams, according to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, a potential transaction that would create an additional $2.18 million against the 2009 salary cap. Williams finished last season on injured reserve with a broken forearm, :secret:starting just two games and recording six tackles. For his career in Dallas since being drafted in the first round in 2002 out of Oklahoma with the eighth overall pick, Williams has 506 tackles and 19 interceptions. Meanwhile, Schefter reports that the Cowboys are expected to cut backup quarterback Brad Johnson for an additional $2 million in salary-cap space. http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/9269274/Source:-Cowboys-trying-to-tra There may soon be only one Roy Williams on the Dallas Cowboys roster. The Cowboys have contacted NFL teams trying to trade Williams, a five-time Pro Bowl safety in his seven seasons in Dallas, FOXSports.com has learned. If a deal can't be reached, Williams could be released to clear room for the Cowboys under the salary cap. Williams played in only three games last season because of forearm injuries. Although regarded as a strong tackler, Williams has struggled in coverage and is no longer considered a good fit for Dallas' 3-4 scheme under head coach Wade Phillips. Williams, 28, is scheduled to earn a $4.4 million base salary in 2009. He is under contract through 2010. The Cowboys traded with Detroit for wide receiver Roy Williams during the 2008 season.
