Terrance Williams Continues To Redeem Himself

- Terrance Williams, #83

The first few weeks of the 2016 season were rough for wide receiver Terrance Williams. A start so rough, that staff writer Brian Martin posed the question "Is Terrance Williams the Most Hated Cowboys Player," and people mostly agreed.

First, in the Cowboys home opener and only loss of the year, Williams neglected to run out of bounds on a final second reception. The clock then ran out, and the perfect Dan Bailey was not given the opportunity to win the game. Cowboys Headlines - Is Terrance Williams' Future in Dallas?

Then two games later, Williams made a huge catch on a drive that was supposed to put the Chicago Bears away once and for all, only to fumble it away and give Chicago another chance to get into the game.

Since that moment, where all of Cowboys Nation seemed against Terrance, he has risen to the occasion and played some of the best football of his career. Yesterday was no different.

Nearing the end of a tight first half, the Cowboys needed to punch it in for 6 in order to create some separation with Washington. On first and goal, Dak Prescott couldn't find anywhere to go with the ball, and was flushed out of the pocket to his right.

The came Terrance Williams.

Noticing his quarterback in trouble, Williams retreated for the ball and made a spectacular catch to keep both feet in bounds reminiscent of his big play in Seattle 2 years ago.

Here's another angle, just for good measure.

While Williams has long been criticized for his "body catching" habits, one area he excels in is his footwork. I honestly have no idea how he swiped both feet in bounds on that play, but thankfully he did it and got the Cowboys a two touchdown lead which they would hold onto for the rest of the game.

Oh, and it got Williams this nickname from fellow receivers Dez Bryant and Lucky Whitehead.

For all the flack that Williams gets from fans, it is always good to see him make plays and quiet everyone for at least a game. Today, even the biggest Terrance Williams hater can do nothing but tip their cap.

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.

Welcome to Cowboys Nation Randall Cobb!

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.
