    Is Terrance Williams Roster Spot Safe with Dallas Cowboys?

    This will hardly be the last article written about the wide receivers of the Dallas Cowboys entering the . However, we can only hope it's the last off-field incident that will factor into the difficult decisions the Cowboys will make on their final at WR. Yesterday, veteran Wide Receiver Terrance Williams was arrested for public intoxication after leaving the scene of a crash involving his Lamborghini.

    Details concerning the severity of the incidents that led to Williams arrest remain somewhat unclear. His on-field production certainly has not been though, putting himself in an expendable position by failing to catch a touchdown in 2017 and only going for over 100 yards once.

    Handling this Terrance Williams situation in whatever the “right way” is will be yet another critical decision the Cowboys make under . A team that has clearly valued continuity under Garrett, there is precedent for the Cowboys keeping a now-troubled player like Williams if the void he'd leave behind is too large.

    It is widely believed that this is a Cowboys working to keep their jobs in 2018. Losing , and Terrance Williams in one may very well be too much.

    Already dealing with a broken foot that expects to keep Terrance Williams out of football activities until though, it is becoming increasingly easier for Williams to become forgotten about in new WR Coach 's room.

    New additions to this unit include FA signings and , along with rookies and . Joined by the likes of KD Cannon, , and Malik Earl, all of these receivers are going to stake their claims for a spot on the Dallas Cowboys before Williams even catches another pass from .

    Once perceived to be fighting for positions below Hurns, Williams, and as locks on the final 53 man roster, Williams' arrest is the epitome of “next man up” in Dallas. Even if Williams remains with the team in 2018 – as cutting him would only make moral sense for the Cowboys, not financial – his days as a starting receiver may very well be numbered.

    As mentioned, this won't be the first look we have at the status of the Cowboys receivers. I'm already on record having high expectations for Michael Gallup, and believe Cedrick Wilson was one of the steals of the draft for the Cowboys in the sixth round. The unproven nature of this pass catching unit (through to TE with rookie ) is going to make for fascinating training camp battles, competing for spots in an that could still be one of the league's best.

    Cowboys stuck with T-Will’s contract barring trade or suspension so releasing him does little but does create roster space. His #1 problem, he still hasn’t learned to catch with his hands not his body.

    But he lost his starting job the day Hurns was signed.
