Cowboys Acquire Roy Williams Making Them Officially Ridiculous

Zachary WishnovContributor IOctober 14, 2008

Just when people thought the Cowboys couldn't get any more talent, they prove everyone wrong. Earlier today, before the NFL trade deadline passed, the Dallas Cowboys acquired Pro-Bowl wide receiver Roy Williams from the Detroit Lions.

The price for this underrated wideout? A first-round pick in the 2009 draft, as well as a third, sixth, and seventh selection.

This not only gives the Cowboys a second pro-bowl receiver, but assures stability in the position for the Cowboys for years to come should they sign him to long-term contract.

As an avid Eagles fan, all I can say is this is absolutely ridiculous. Has anyone noticed that Dallas has gotten whoever they want, whenever they want? I don't know how they do it. Who knows what will happen when the NFL salary cap gets thrown in the trash and the Cowboys (the richest NFL franchise) can buy any player they want at any price they want.

Some notable names the Cowboys have acquired via trade or other means over the past few years have been Terrell Owens, Adam "Pacman" Jones, who is now on suspension for alcohol violations, and now Roy Williams.

If the Dallas Cowboys secure a Super Bowl this year or the next, it will prove one thing: Money, and not players, win championships.
