Dallas Cowboys likely to part ways with some offensive players

There is wide spread belief that the Dallas Cowboys could part ways with two offensive players once a new CBA is agreed to. WR Roy Williams and RB Marion Barber have long been rumored to be on their way out of Dallas.

WR Roy Williams had a mediocre season in 2010, catching 37 passes for 530 yards and five scores. While Williams would be a solid number three receiver, his current contract is the problem in Dallas. Williams was acquired by the Cowboys in 2008 from the Detroit Lions an promptly signed a new deal. Williams received a six-year deal worth an estimated $54 million with a reported $26 million guaranteed. In 2011, Williams is scheduled to earn $5.1 million, far too much money for the production he provides the Cowboys. With the emergence of WR’s Miles Austin and Dez Bryant, Williams now will either have to take a substantial pay cut, or risk being released.

RB Marion Barber’s best days might be behind him. Barber only recorded 374 rushing yards in 2010 and found the endzone a career low four times. Before the end of the 2010 trade deadline, Barber’s name had been tossed around, and as he is due to earn $4.25 million in 2011, he is a very good bet to be with another team next season.
