No IR Return For WR Terrance Williams, Career Over in Dallas?

You may have forgotten, but Wide Receiver Terrance Williams is still technically a member of the Dallas Cowboys. We haven't really seen him much this season and I wouldn't expect him in uniform anytime soon, especially if Clarence Hill Jr's report the Cowboys don't plan on bringing him back from Injured Reserve is true.

WR Terrance Williams is not option to return from injured resever, per Cowboys source

It's really not that big of a surprise the Dallas Cowboys don't plan on bringing back Terrance Williams from IR this season. With the addition of Amari Cooper and the emergence of rookie WR Michael Gallup, Williams has become an afterthought amongst the Cowboys receivers. Many of you have probably forgotten he was still actually on the team.

Williams' future with the organization has already been in doubt and this could be further evidence his time in Dallas could be coming to an end. The shocking thing is, this comes just a little over a year after he signed a four-year contract extension, which is starting to look like money thrown down the drain by the Cowboys.

But, I don't know if I would count out Williams' playing days in Dallas over just yet. The reason I say this is because they could've easily released him earlier in the offseason when he was arrested for driving while intoxicated. Why didn't they pull the trigger then? Is it because they still value him or something else?

Unfortunately, we won't get the answers to these or any other questions for a while now. But, that doesn't mean we can't still speculate as to what might be going on. That's part of the fun of being on the outside of things and wondering what's going on behind closed doors.

Personally, I would've already moved on from T-Will. I think the Cowboys have upgraded their outside receivers with Gallup and Cooper, which doesn't leave much room for Williams any longer. That's just my opinion though.

The Cowboys however may still have a plan for Williams beyond this season. With Cole Beasley set to become a free agent after the completion of this year, the depth at the WR position could be depleted. A veteran like Williams could come in handy, at least until they find better/cheaper options.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least bit if the Cowboys move Amari Cooper into the slot next season if Beasley leaves and have Michael Gallup and Terrance Williams as their outside receivers. But again, this is purely speculation on my part.

I don't know about you, but I'm a little intrigued as to what the Dallas Cowboys plan on doing with Terrance Williams moving forward. I can see both the positives and negatives of him staying as well as the positives and negatives of him leaving. It's going to be really interesting to see what happens.

What do you think the Dallas Cowboys will do with WR Terrance Williams?

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

According to multiple sources, the Dallas Cowboys have signed former Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Randall Cobb to a one-year deal to help bolster their depth at the WR position and potentially become Cole Beasley's replacement.

Cowboys are giving former Packers' WR Randall Cobb a one-year, $5 million deal, per source. https://t.co/8KWFPjSP8T

The Dallas Cowboys met with Randall Cobb earlier this week, but he eventually left Dallas without a contract. He must've had a change of heart or just needed time to ponder the Cowboys offer, but regardless of what transpired in that short time he is now part of America's Team.

During his time with the Packers, Cobb accumulated 470 receptions for 5,524 receiving yards and 41 touchdowns. The eight-year veteran will now be expected to replace some of Cole Beasley's production out of the slot for the Dallas Cowboys.

After years of watching Beasley as the Cowboys slot WR, it will be really interesting to see Randall Cobb in that role. He's not as quick twitched as No. 11, but can be just as dangerous due to his ability to be more of a down the field receiver. He also brings added value in the return game and could compete with Tavon Austin to become the return specialist.

This could mean the Cowboys forgo drafting a wide receiver early in the 2019 NFL Draft, but I wouldn't put it past them. Regardless of what happens, this is an excellent addition.

REPORT: Dallas Cowboys Re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur is returning for his 15th season as the Cowboys' long snapper. The veteran free agent was re-signed by Dalals today to a one-year deal.

Thanks to Jason Witten's one-year sabbatical with Monday Night Football, Ladouceur has now been with the Cowboys for more consecutive seasons than any current player. He just turned 38 last week, but Louis-Philippe remains one of the top long snappers in football.

Todd Archer on Twitter

The Cowboys have signed long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur to a one-year deal worth $1.03 million and $90,000 in bonus money, but he will count $735,000 against the cap. This will be Ladouceur's 15th season with the Cowboys, tying Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Mark... https://t.co/2iDsi6RX7e

Retaining Ladouceur is an underrated move for the Cowboys given their situation at kicker.

Brett Maher was only 80% accurate overall on field goals last year. The team could be considering an upgrade in free agency.

Whether they bring Maher back or try someone new, having a long snapper with Ladouceur's performance perfection will make things much easier for them.

REPORT: Police Detain Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford After Bar Fight

Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford Kicked Off Thursday Flight

According to TMZ, Tyrone Crawford was involved in a brawl at a bar in Panama City, FL last Friday night. The Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman and team captain was detained by police but apparently was not arrested.

The level of Crawford's involvement has not been substantiated, but TMZ's report does have him shoving police officers at some point in the action. The incident was reportedly captured by surveillance equipment at the bar.

Given that he was not arrested, one could assume that Tyrone was not one of the primary players in the melee. But that doesn't mean the NFL won't still review this matter as it relates to the personal conduct policy, and Cowboys fans know too well how "fair" that process can be.

This is certainly not a story you'd expect to see attached to Tyrone Crawford, who has been a model citizen and leader since entering the league in 2012.

Dallas elected to keep Crawford this season despite solid potential savings. He will count $10.1 million against their 2019 salary cap, which is high for his average production. However, he can play multiple positions and is one of their most experienced players.

Even if Tyrone were to get suspended by the league, it likely wouldn't be more than a one or two-game ban given his record and reputation. It shouldn't change anything about his status with the team.
