Roy Williams to the Cowboys for Draft Picks; Kitna Placed on IR

Wide Receiver Roy Williams and a 7th round draft pick have been traded to the Dallas Cowboys for their

1st, 3rd and 6th round picks.

Huge deal for the Lions, the Cowboys grossly overpaid.

Also typical Lions, they were singing from the rafters about how WIlliams is not on the trading block and saying that they have no intention of shopping him around. Jerry Jones apparently got obsessed with Roy and felt he needed him in Texas. He didn’t mind sweetening the pot for him.

AND in other news, John Kitna has been placed on IR. This is a disrespectful move on the part of the Lions and really shows how they lack class in dealing with veteran football players. Aside from the team being consistently and inexplicably terrible and finishing last in one of the weakest (if not THE weakest) divisions in Pro Football, the Lions just fail to do players right. If they really wanted to get rid of him and move on, if they felt that as an organization it was over with him, waive him. He is not young, the right thing to do would be to offer him the opportunity to play somewhere else. New England would scoop him up or whatever. Making him sit out a year is just not right and that’s why you have to pay so much for less than elite caliber free agents.

    Well it is a little cheaper than the two number ones they wanted before. Hope the attitude problems Lions have have mentioned are not as bad as advertised

    I have a feeling that it’s going to be a late 1st rounder if the ‘Boys can play competitively until they get romo healthy in 7 weeks

    Jerry did sweeten the pot, but I think Williams is worth it. We’ve got two tall, fast WR’s now and I think that’s worth a first rounder. We had plenty of other picks this year anyway, so I don’t mind the 3rd or 6th rounder and I definitely don’t care about those two at all. I think it’s good business on both sides of the deal.

    It’s a fairly natural fit. Roy is a Longhorn after all. I think he’ll be happy there. Well… who wouldn’t want to be traded off of an 0-6 team?

    i think we have yet to see the capabilities of roy williams because of the poor lions offense but i feel that now we will see what kind of play roy would have been on the cowboys it think he is going to tear it up there. i just want to know what im gonna do with his jersey now ! at least i still have calvins lol

    The Lions ripped the Cowboys off. Roy Williams is pretty good, but they gave up the world for him. It’s not like he is Larry Fitzgerald.
