Roy Williams Set To Retire

That is, at least according to his Facebook page:

↵↵

The former Texas great and Dallas Cowboys WR last played in the NFL as a Chicago Bear last season, catching 37 passes for 507 yards and 2 TD's. But at the age of 30, no team picked him up in 2012, which may have been the writing on the wall for his football career.

↵

At 6'3 215 with 4.4 40 speed, Williams was one of the most dominant WR's in Longhorn history, but he never quite lived up to his lofty expectations at the pro level.

↵

He started his career as one of three top-10 WR's on a Detroit Lions team with no QB (thanks Matt Millen!), although he did have one Pro Bowl season in 2006.

↵

The Cowboys acquired him in 2008 at the cost two first-round picks, an investment that didn't exactly work out in Dallas. Hopefully Jerry learned his lesson, but probably not.
