So much so that he’d like to go back to his native state…this from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

The Cowboys could make a play for Arizona Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin or Detroit Lions receiver Roy Williams. Williams played at the University of Texas and, according to a source, “wants to play in Dallas.” Lions coach Rod Marinelli has said Detroit has no intention of trading Williams, who is in the final of year of his rookie contract that will pay him a base salary of $3.724 million in 2008. The Lions have not talked to Williams about an extension, and, with Calvin Johnson on their roster, it is unlikely the Lions can afford Williams’ asking price for a long-term extension. But Detroit could use the franchise tag on Williams next year, which would give it flexibility to re-sign or trade him ?

    He needs to bounce. He would have better numbers if a rocket football QB were throwing to him.

    Detroit has drafted a wide receiver in the first round 4 out of the last five years and he is the only one to live up to the billing. The jury is still out on Calvin Johnson, but Roy in a bonafide star…go figure the Leyoness will lose him like they will lose to DA BEARS!

    I give him credit. I would wrote my retirement speach the day they drafted me if I was him.

    Roy went on to say that he did have fun during one game in Detroit, when they dropped and NFL record 35 points in the 4th quarter against Du Bears.
