    I see this as a good move by the Cowboys.

    Even with sending 3 draft picks to the Lions, the Cowboys still have 9 draft picks in the 7 rounds of next year's draft.

    Also, Williams is still in his 20s. He's a replacement for TO should the Cowboys feel that TO's skills are starting to decline.

    I'm really hoping this helps Brad Johnson in the short run by taking some coverage from TO. Part of me just feels like it was a Jerry Jones act of desperation.

    Hope you enjoy those 3 WRs you're going to pick up in next year's draft with those picks you got from the Cowboys today.

    a first
    a second
    and a third

    and the lions will keep on sucking well beyond the end of the season

    Are you kidding me? For the first time in ages I can't come online the whole day and I miss this?

    I think it's a pretty good deal. We really haven't hit with the mid-round picks since Parcells departed. The last one I can remember now is Marion Barber, and he was drafted in the 4th. Can't wait to see Romo back in action!!

    Roy is gonna be a great addition to the Boys offense. With that being said I am not sure if he is worth the price. We could go on and on debating this and hearing from fans on both sides, but the fact of the matter is that the Lions did a great job of giving Jerry Jones and Dallas fans another diva to deal with and 3 good picks to help them revive thier franchise. Nice job Detroit.

    its funny that only the cowboys fans think the deal is a good one and not even all of them think so, He is a good WR, but 1,3,6 is WAY too much, it just is. Yeah draft picks are always hit or miss, but you can't just assume they would be misses.

    The truth of the matter is, if Roy does well and the cowboys win, then it won't matter, if he fails and it causes TO to snitch and moan and tears the team apart, then it will be deemed a mistake, but only time can answer this question.

    As of right now, you can only say that it was too much to trade, I can't think of any player being traded for a 1st, let alone a 1st, 3rd and 6th.

    If just reeks of desperation, and does not seem like a Jerry Jones move at all.

    Why not try to sign him as a FA? If detroit tagged him, Why not try and trade for him at the draft when detroit would be desperate to trade him and avoid a holdout mess?

    It just feels like the wrong time, it's not exactly like the Cowboys are bad at WR, with Owens, Crayton and Austin playing more than decent.

    It could make them better, It could be a mistake, but, imo, it really doesn't make sense, When did Jerry Jones turn into Dan Snyder?

    The way I see it, and i agree with Oxlong on alot of this is that it could work out beautifully, but it throws some cuffs on us as well, bit in draft picks and money wise. We arent hurting in the cap department, but what happens in a guy like Haynesworth walks. We cant go after him

    I honestly dont see the need for a 1A WR. If you were then whee the heck were you when Fitz was on the market

    a 1st, 3rd and 6th could have gotten fitz and he is a ton better than williams, another example that makes me feel like this is a desperation move that was really unnecessary. There is only so many passes to go around, and now you can't get a guy like Haynesworth that would have meant so much more to the team than Roy Williams.

    All I can think of is that maybe they plan on TO not being there for very much longer.
