It's possible that there's never been a more polarizing figure in Dallas Cowboys nation than former safety Roy Williams.

Williams, who destroyed the Big 12 and had one of the more famous plays in the ancient Texas-OU rivalry with his "superman" move to force UT quarterback Chris Simms to cough up the ball and lead to an OU score, had a lot of fans in Dallas. He also had a lot of haters.

Williams somehow made five Pro Bowls for the Cowboys, which just goes to show the criteria for earning a Pro Bowl berth considering he couldn't cover an NFL receiver to save his life.

He sure could hit hard though, for what that's worth.

Anyway, Williams has accepted a position on the Oklahoma Sooners radio broadcast for the upcoming football season, where he'll host a pregame show and be a sideline reporter during the game.

After leaving the Cowboys in 2009, Williams signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, with whom he "played" in 2010.

He insists he isn't retiring, but it sure would seem that way, wouldn't it?

"My body is telling me that I am making the right moves, but if the right offer came along I guess I'd have to think about (playing again)," Wiliams told News on 6, in Oklahoma.

Keep on waiting on those offers, buddy.
