Roy Williams: 'I want to be' in Dallas

The numbers aren’t lost on Roy Williams.

He knows what could lie ahead for him, too, and exit from Dallas. But he sure would like to stay where he is.

As Bill Nichols of the Dallas Morning News lays out, Williams is owed $20.4 million over the next three seasons as part of the massive contract Jerry Jones gave him upon trading for him. Williams’ production this season – 36 receptions for 524 yards and five touchdowns – doesn’t warrant that kind of pay, especially with the development of rookie Dez Bryant and with Miles Austin in place.

"I can only do what I can do," Williams said. "Started off nice and then fell off the face of the earth somehow.

"I want to be here. If not, I will be somewhere else. I was the go-to guy in Detroit. Coordinators can make who they want to make the star."

Williams probably has productive football left in him, but the simple economics of the situation make it difficult for you to envision him back in Dallas. Then again, Jones can be unconventional and he might want to squeeze what he can out of what’s been a bad trade.
