Default Cowboys SS Roy Williams asks to be cut or traded

I'm willing to bet Belichick will offer him a second chance...any takers?

Roy Williams wants to know what his future holds immediately, so his agent, Jordan Woy, has asked the Dallas Cowboys to either cut or trade the strong safety by today.

The Cowboys have made Williams available for trade but the market has been slow, largely because teams believe the club will eventually release him. Williams is scheduled to count $6.6 million against the 2009 salary cap.

If the Cowboys trade or cut Williams, they will save roughly $2 million against the cap. His 2008 season was cut short by a twice-fractured right forearm that limited him to three games. He finished with nine tackles.

He wouldn't be a bad weakside linebacker for the right price.

Actually, I wasn't implying that, though I could see where you would guess that. I was making fun of the fact that he's still labeled as a Safety...when his coverage skills are about as good as Shaun Rogers or Albert Haynesworth's.

Actually, with the way the Browns secondary looks, just about ANY player is going to be an upgrade. Isn't Sean Jones on his way out?

As much as I'm relieved about TO being cut, I'm not exactly too thrilled about SS Roy being cut.

He may be the hugest liability in coverage, and one of the league's biggest underachievers, but our run D took a hit after he went down last year. He's done an excellent job in providing run support for us, I'll give him that. Remember the Ravens game last year(i.e. last TX Stadium game)-if Roy had been in there, those 2 long TD runs at the end prolly wouldn't have happened.

He's a FA, but he's not generating a lot of interest (that I'm aware of.) Of course, he's not getting much from the Browns FO either...

I think losing Sean Jones will hurt a lot more than my new FO is aware of. Then again, I don't know that there is a lot of difference between my old FO and the new regime. I'm not sold...especially with Mangini.
