Wide Receiver, Roy Williams, whose contract with the Detroit Lions will expire this season, has signed a five year deal with the Dallas Cowboys. The announcement was made following the announcement of current Cowboys cornerback, Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones’ four game suspension. As reported by the Dallas Morning News, the agreement was made just shy of the 3:00 trading deadline. Twenty-six year old William’s record with the Lions for the current season is 17 catches for 232 yards and one touchdown. As of Tuesday, the Lions were 0-5.
The Cowboys, who are currently 4-2, will have other changes made for this season as well with quarterback Tony Romo having to sit out for one month due to a hand injury. The deal with Williams comes after speculation of Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones desiring an additional receiver after signing current player Terrell Owens, who was given a $34 million four year contract extension.
The Cowboys, who suffered an upsetting loss on Sunday to Arizona, are set to play St. Louis this Sunday, October 19.
