The Dallas Cowboys have completed a trade to acquire much-sought, much-talented Roy Williams from the Detroit Lions, according to a league source and several media reports.
The trade apparently includes multiple draft picks, including a first-round draft pick.
Dallas originally believed it could land Williams for a second-round pick but apparently there was at least one other team trying to land Williams so the price went up.
Assuming the Dolphins were not the other team -- it should not shock the Dolphins didn't get the quality receiver they desperately lack. Miami's brain trust would never give up a first round pick for Roy Williams.
Nor should they.
A second rounder? I would have applauded that, as I'm sure most fans would have. A first-rounder, particularly Miami's first rounder, which could be a top 15-pick? No way.
This is a long-term deal for the Cowboys as they will announced they have reworked and extended Williams' contract when he arrives in Dallas. He will not be a free agent next season.
So it goes ...
By the way, doesn't this make you wonder what the Cowboys are going to do with Patrick Crayton and Miles Austin?
Anyway, the Dolphins also didn't trade for Roy Rogers. Inside joke.
