After starting the 2010 season as one of the most productive receivers on the Dallas Cowboys roster, Roy Williams stalled, and now, if he plays, is set to enter the season finale with Philadelphia with just 36 catches. Indeed, it seems as though the relationship between Williams and the Cowboys is, for lack of a better, less bleak word, doomed.
Williams had 18 catches and five touchdowns through the first six games of the season. He hasn’t caught a touchdown since then, and has struggled lately with a strained groin. Williams missed the week 15 match-up with Washington, and, although active, didn’t record a catch (but did have a pass hit his pads before being intercepted) against Arizona on Christmas night.
In speaking to reporters Wednesday, the veteran receiver seemed to suggest that play-calling was responsible for the drop in production.
"I was the go-to-guy in Detroit," said Williams, per ESPN Dallas. "Coordinators can make who they want to make the star.
"[The ball] stopped coming my way. Why I don’t know. It’s kind of disappointing. We have so much talent on the offensive side of the ball. I'm one of just eight pieces on the offensive side of the ball that can make plays on the football field."
