Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Terrance Williams on 4 Year Deal

Welcome to the 2017 NFL free agency period, Dallas Cowboys! The Cowboys have gotten busy in adding DT Stephen Paea, CB Nolan Carroll, and DE Damontre Moore to their defense, and now they have re-signed WR Terrance Williams on a new four-year deal.

Terrance Williams’ contract with the Cowboys is four years, $17 million with $9.5 million guaranteed, according… https://t.co/PYm6S6S8lM

Terrance Williams was expected to join Terrell McClain, Jack Crawford, Ronald Leary, and Barry Church in departing from the Cowboys via free agency, but instead the market for the receiver caved in a bit and landed him back in the silver and blue.

Free Agency: Will Loaded WR Market Keep Terrance Williams in Dallas?

Williams has been a much-criticized member of the Dallas offense, but a valuable one at that through his career. The Cowboys offense was one of the league’s best in 2016 under rookie QB Dak Prescott, so retaining as many members of this offense is critical.

Now, the Cowboys have brought back both Brice Butler and Terrance Williams to catch passes from Prescott – while the 2017 NFL Draft still looms with a deep group of WRs to choose from.

Terrance Williams’ four-year, team-friendly deal has come as a surprise to Cowboys Nation. Perhaps it is just the surprise we needed to serve as a reminder that Will McClay and this front office know what they are doing, and that the Cowboys will be just fine in 2017.

    Welcome to free agency I was getting worried there Nothing too flashy just solid pick ups I’m on the fence with T- will because he could of been replaced through the draft but We went after Carroll last off season He’s solid, Moore could be good,and Paea is solid, Another move or two And I will feel better about going in to the draft I think they will bring back Carr and let Claiborne walk I think with these moves we will be able to head into the draft with the best player available mentality over drafting for biggest need

      Spot on. Keep trusting the process.

    Very surprised, because WR’s with lesser stats that Williams were signing last year in the $8 million / per range with new teams.

    I take it he values the chance at a title, and also just wasn’t commanding that kind of money. As a reliable #2, $4 million is a deal IMO.

    Still very glad they invested in Butler. I believe the improvement he had in 2016 will continue, and if Dez goes out again, he could be poised for big things.

    A few open questions still on the OL, RB and TE, and who is backing up Dak. But overall this offense is set to dominate again.

      Absolutely, and I was just as stunned as you were when this news broke that Williams could be brought back at this price for four years. OL, RB, and TE all spots that could be addressed early in the draft. Thanks as always for commenting!

    Dak with the same receiver set definitely headed in the right direction, in terms of making strides in his sophomore season..

      Prescott said himself he’s fired up to have his whole core on offense back in place. Young QB just gets to focus on continued improvement…exciting stuff.
