Aikman OK with Owens getting cut
IRVING, Texas -- Troy Aikman thinks the Cowboys made the right move by getting rid of Terrell Owens. Now he's curious to see whether they also were right about making Roy Williams the new top target for Tony Romo.
Dallas gave its first-, third- and sixth-round picks in the upcoming draft to Detroit to get Williams midway through last season. He hardly looked a guy who led the NFC in yards receiving two years earlier, producing fewer than 200 yards and a single touchdown in 10 games, yet without Owens he becomes the No. 1 receiver.
"If Roy Williams doesn't turn out to be the player that they thought he would be when they made the trade, I think this would be one of the biggest busts in the history of the league," Aikman said.
Aikman spoke following a news conference announcing Wingstop as the official chicken wing provider for the Cowboys and their new stadium. He's been a customer of the location near team headquarters since his playing days, and is in his sixth year as their national spokesman.
(Quick, can anyone tell me the "official wing provider" of the NY Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Redskins? Who is the official wing provider for Buffalo?--B.P.)
