Roy Williams: Safety Cut By Dallas Cowboys

Dumont WalkerSenior Analyst IMarch 5, 2009

Continuing with the business of the day, the Dallas Cowboys have cut Pro Bowl safety Roy Williams. Much like the move to axe T.O. earlier today, Williams being cut does not come as a surprise to many.

Roy Williams missed the majority of last season after breaking a bone in his arm. Before that, Williams had already been reduced to being a two-down safety, as he had been removed from the nickel and dime packages.

While being a devastating hitter, Williams was one of the worst cover safeties in the NFL, and as a result he was a liability on third down.
