I like Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. And I do think he's better at personnel than some give him credit for being.
But about that Roy Williams deal, Jerry.
In October of 2008, the Cowboys sent a 2009 first-round pick, plus a third- and a sixth-round pick to the Lions for Williams and a seventh-round pick.
The Cowboys then gave Williams a five-year extension worth $45 million with $20 million guaranteed.
It was the fatal trade-and-sign mistake Jones made here. For that deal, Williams gave the Cowboys 94 catches and 13 touchdowns in 35 games.
The Cowboys have told Williams they will release him Thursday to save $5.1 million against the cap.
Jones blew this trade and pay just like he did years ago when he acquired Joey Galloway.
It's never worth making a move like that for a receiver -- I promise you.
