Williams intends to let his play speak for itself as he enters the final year of his rookie contract this season, ESPN.com reports.
Williams has developed into a good second-choice wideout opposite Dez Bryant since joining the Cowboys as a third-round pick in 2013. In fact, with Bryant out for much of last season, Williams went on to post career-highs in catches (52) and yards (840), scoring three times as well. That being said, given the Cowboys' bevy of highly-paid offensive players, it remains to be seen whether Williams is regarded as a future investment as well. Regardless, the 26-year-old plans to prove his worth on the field this season, his last with the Cowboys under his current contract.
Terrance Williams obliterated his previous season high with eight catches for 173 yards on nine targets Sunday against the Redskins.
Williams set a new career-high with 840 yards this year despite playing without starting quarterback Tony Romo for much of the season. He scored only three touchdowns after combining for 13 over his first two NFL campaigns, but at least Williams finished on a high note.
The third-year wideout led Dallas in targets on the day, but his inability to connect with Kellen Moore on a number of occasions capped what could have been a more productive performance. Williams' usage clearly increased with Dez Bryant sidelined due to injury, and he should once again be one of the most heavily-targeted
Terrance Williams was targeted five times in Sunday's loss to Green Bay, tallying three catches and 38 yards.
The lanky deep-threat has slowed a bit thus far this season, averaging a catch of 20 yards or more every eight targets after posting a 6.9 average in 2014 and 6.2 in 2013. He has also slowed on the touchdowns, catching just three this season after collecting eight in 2014. Two of those 2015 touchdowns came in games in which Tony Romo started. With Romo out, Williams, like many of his teammates, loses his luster.
Terrance Williams caught two passes on three targets for a team-high 63 yards in Monday's win over Washington.
Matt Cassel didn't look his way very often, as Williams once again had trouble getting open on a consistent basis. The Dallas Cowboys ' passing game doesn't have a lot of upside as it is with Cassel under center, so don't expect Williams to produce better numbers next week in Green Bay.
