Since coming to Dallas midway through last season, Roy Williams has been a very big disappointment to both the Cowboys and their fans.  Dropped passes, running the wrong routes, and just not looking in sync with Romo at all have been the biggest problems in his time in Dallas.  Worst of all, he is being paid 9M a season to do all this.  Under normal NFL cap rules, the Cowboys would be stuck with Roy and his 5 year, 45M dollar deal.  But, there is hope.

The 2010 NFL offseason will be the start of an uncapped year.  This is a golden oppurtunity for Dallas to attempt to renegotiate with Williams, or just cut him all together.  With no cap, Dallas could cut him without worrying about being hamstrung by the salary cap and preventing them from making improvements in the offseason.

Personally, I would hope that Williams agrees to restructure his contract.  Roy is a Texas guy through and through, and has to love playing NFL ball in Texs after playing both high school and college there.  If not, Dallas has to just cut their loses and move on.  I know Dallas spent a 1st, 3rd, and 6th round pick on the guy, but enough is enough.  Him and Romo never look to be on the same page.  Like I stated above, a team needs more production from their highest paid WR making 9M a year.  Austin has passed Williams as the number one receiver, and is due for a big contract in the offseason.  If Williams is making 9M, Austin is going to ask for at least that. 

 Wide receiver Roy Williams #11 celebrates a touchdown with Miles Austin #18 of the Dallas Cowboys at Cowboys Stadium on November 1, 2009 in Arlington, Texas.

But Austin's contract situation doesn't really have anything to do with the Williams situation.  The guy does not deserve to be making as much as he is.  The uncapped year is the perfect time to cut him.  Dallas has plenty of other weapons, and could find someone to bring the same things Roy brings to the table for much less.  They could probably just draft a receiver in the 3rd or 4th round and be fine.

With Witten, Austin, Crayton, Hurd, and Ogletree, Dallas has plenty of weapons without mentioning Marion Barber and Felix Jones.  Kevin Ogletree has been money when called on this season and I think he is fully capable of playing a bigger role next year.  The Cowboys have to do something about Williams' contract.  The oppurtunity of either releasing him or renegotiating his contract in an uncapped year is just too good to pass up.
