Updating this post with this breaking news on wide receiver Roy Williams:
A total misfit from day one, Williams scored a huge payday in Dallas and never lived up to his hype, his ego or his cost to the team in money and draft picks. Good bye.

The Cowboys have cut right guard Leonard Davis and running back Marion Barber Jr. today according to ESPN.
For those of you who read my posts, the Barber cut should come as no surprise to any of you as he was overpaid and unproductive in my opinion.
Since Barber was given the opportunity for increased playing time after the team cut ties with Julius Jones, Barber’s yards per carry went into steep decline as I chronicled season after season.
As for Davis, his production tailed off last season and in his last six games he yielded no sacks and was flagged for one penalty.
Both moves should clear up some salary cap room for the Cowboys who were about $13 million dollars (ESPN estimate) over going into the new season.
Offensive lineman Marc Colombo and kicker Kris Brown have also been cut this afternoon as well.
Jerry Jones is conducting all the separation interviews himself.
