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.
