    Williams wants to play for Cowboys

    The Cowboys could make a play for Arizona Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin or Detroit Lions receiver Roy Williams. Williams played at the University of Texas and, according to a source, "wants to play in Dallas." Lions coach Rod Marinelli has said Detroit has no intention of trading Williams, who is in the final of year of his rookie contract that will pay him a base salary of $3.724 million in 2008. The Lions have not talked to Williams about an extension, and, with Calvin Johnson on their roster, it is unlikely the Lions can afford Williams' asking price for a long-term extension. But Detroit could use the franchise tag on Williams next year, which would give it flexibility to re-sign or trade him -- Fort Worth Star-Telegram

    Just because he may like playing in Dallas doesn't mean he's had enough of Detroit. He's said numerous times that he wants to be a Lion.

    These WRs are c**k-teases this year.:icon_mrgreen:

    Ok why do the rumours keep coming up?

    The Cowboys only have a few million in cap space and need to sign all their rookies and a few others to long term deals. How could they afford it?

    Because Ken Hamlin's franchise tag is eating up almost 9 million in cap room for this season. Once we sign him to a long-term deal, his cap number will drop dramatically.

    You should know better. Dan Snyder is a master at restructuring bad deals for bad players...the only difference is that we make them for good players :icon_cheesygrin:

    as far a talent goes but he didnt have the season the #2 pick should have, he needs to step up big this season to move into the roy williams class of WR

    Nope. It's fake. Check the Eagles' site. Not a mention of it. The deal supposedly went down yesterday, and there's not a trace of old alligator arms anywhere on I even checked the roster. Every other FA signing is on there, but no Pinkston.

    Matt Millen will be labeled the anti-christ if this type of crap continues...oh wait..he already has been labled as the anti-christ...why the heck has no one physically removed this clown from detroit altogether? I thought Detroit was supposed to have some hard nosed people who work their asses off and don't stand for clowns freaking them over repeatedly?

    He's not going anywhere. Rod Marinelli is "making sure of it."

    I think his quote was he'd be like a farmer with a shotgun in front of his daughters bedroom door? or something to that affect...:eek:hboy:
