The Dallas Cowboys are moving on from Terrance Williams.
The Cowboys have declined Williams’ contract option, which will make him an unrestricted free agent when the NFL’s new year kicks off on March 16, the team announced on Monday.
Williams had just two receptions for 18 yards in three games for the Cowboys this season. He was moved to the injured reserve after three games due to issues with his right foot.
The 29-year-old was also suspended three games last year for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy when he was arrested in May for public intoxication after an incident with his Lamborghini near the team’s practice facility. That charge was later dismissed. In 2017, his last full season with the team, he had 53 receptions for 568 yards but failed to score a touchdown for the first time in his six-year career with the Cowboys.

Williams played six seasons with Dallas after the franchise selected him in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He appeared in 83 games (68 starts) and recorded 232 catches for 3,377 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Williams had signed a four-year contract extension in 2017, and was set to make $3.5 million next season and $4 million in 2020. The move will end up saving the Cowboys $2.25 million against the salary cap, according to the Dallas Morning News.
This won’t be the first time that Williams enters free agency as he did so after the 2016 season and chose to return to Dallas. Unlike then, it seems like he and the team are heading in different directions so if he does play football again it will likely be for someone else. He seems like the prime candidate for a bet on himself 1-year type contract. Jon Robinson hasn’t bet on many guys with off the field issues, so it is hard to know if this is something he will be interested in chasing. My guess is no, but for the right price it would be stupid not to at least kick the tires.
