    Give up #28 for Roy Williams, the WR, not the old, slow one we already have?

    Seems like they might do it. Doesn't he go FA next year? Be more value now than after they let him walk, wouldn't it?

    That's a no brainer. He's not in that "elite" receiver class, but he's definitely done a lot with an average cast in Detroit and imagining him with the O-line, QB and T.O. we have would give us one of the best 1-2 punches in the league, if not the best(pending on Indy).

    We can get him for no draft picks next offseason and he wants $8 mil a year..

    No.

    The question is.... Can we wait a year? We're not Indy or New England where we're known for staying consistent year after year by making great drafts. We're hot right now and there's go guarantee we wont go back to being an average team again in a matter of time. We havent shown to be a consistent franchise yet. Granted Romo will still be here, but to have Owens still in his prime with a young receiver who's made a name for himself would be great.

    I was wondering how many thoughts like that were out there. I hadn't heard his salary demands yet.

    So who else that we actually could get would you trade that #28 or our second rounder for?

    Without a doubt.
    No question.
    Would be the best Cowboys move since adding cheerleaders.

    He is far better than ANY of the WRs available in this year's draft and has proven it at the pro level for one of the worst teams in the league.

    Sure we can. If Romo's thumb is healed and TO comes back we had one of the most prolific passing attacks in NFL history and we would have so again.

    Id rather take Caldwell, Sweed, Doucet or Henry and save 7 mil a year and if they dont pan out get RW for no draft picks the next year.

    Nothing I'd draft Sweed, Doucet, Talib, Cason, Henry, Rice, Johnson, Forte and guys like that.

    The Lions have made it clear they don't plan to move Roy, that they want to see what Calvin and Roy can do on the same field.

    So the point is moot.

    I don't know that I would make that trade.

    He has been listed in the injury report multiple times for knee, ankle, quadricep, shoulder/neck, back and hamstring. Granted he didn't miss time with all of them, but the fact that his name would show up so often is a red flag.

    He is going to want to be payed very well when his new contract is due and like Fuzzy said, why spend a pick on someone that will probably hit the market next year anyway?

    I can't help but feel I would rather gamble on Javon Walker (who shows up on injury reports just as much) because the the market appears to be pushing his value down. We could always spend a pick on a rookie WR to hedge our bets and all told still come in under the salary it would take to sign Roy.

    I'm a little scared of Sweed. Great receiver, yes, but hurt ALOT.
