Well, it’s time for the Roy Williams debate again. After a couple of weeks of relatively Roy-free chatter the door is now open. Over at the Star-T
According to Williams, Jones approached him on the practiced field during the organized team activities and assured him that he wasn’t going anywhere.
"I was blindsided by the (cut him or trade him talk)," Williams said. "That is crazy. I don’t plan on playing for another team. I plan to retire as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. I even talked to Jerry about it. He said don’t even worry about it. He said I am not worried about you performing on the football field."
Let the debate begin anew.
Mini-camp starts tomorrow but Todd Archer says don’t expect Ken Hamlin to show because he’s not under contract. Because Hamlin isn’t under contract he can’t be fined for missing the mandatory practices. He has until July 15th to sign his tender.
Terry Glenn probably won’t practice either because he and the Cowboys are still at an impasse over the split-contract that the organization wants him to sign.
After getting past those two items Archer delves into the salary cap situation and gives some great details about what is going on. Here is the key paragraph.
But regardless of what happens with those two [Hamlin and Glenn], the Cowboys are in excellent salary-cap shape – with more than $8 million available – thanks to moves made in the last month.
All praise to Stephen Jones who has been a miracle worker with the cap recently.
Nick Eatman talks up Felix Jones and Tashard Choice. All that time that Choice was wearing #22 at Georgia Tech and I never knew it was because of Emmitt Smith.
