Dallas Cowboys: Terrance Williams arrested, potential fallout

The Dallas Cowboys saw another one of their wide receivers make the headlines early today, but this time for all the wrong reasons.

The Dallas Cowboys are dealing with some unpleasant news as wide receiver Terrance Williams was arrested late last night following an incident in the area of Frisco Green Avenue and Lebanon Road. Apparently, Williams 2017 blue Lamborghini was found in the area after it had collided with a light pole.

While it is not known who was driving Williams car at the time as the driver fled the scene prior to the police arriving, Williams was arrested near his home for Public Intoxication (which is a Class C misdemeanor) after being seen riding an electric bicycle.

The Lamborghini in question was registered in Williams name. The Cowboys wide receiver was released from the Frisco Detention Center on $369 bond and was hit with a misdemeanor for leaving the scene of an accident. This is the second negative incident to happen to Williams during the 2018 offseason as it was announced earlier this year that he had broken a bone in his foot while working out privately.

This would have kept him out for a large portion of OTA’s and potentially a part of training camp. Williams has been really the only Cowboys player making the headlines for the wrong reasons this offseason, sure Cole Beasley did put out a rap album but that was fairly well received. 

Williams was going to be looked at as the veteran in the Cowboys wide receiving corps, however, the impact that he can make is just getting smaller and smaller by the day. Who knows how the NFL will respond to this situation as Roger Goodell hands out suspensions like they are doctors office lollipops but it should not result in anything major.

The big question here is what will the Dallas Cowboys do with Williams as his contract is almost up. The 28-year-old is now considered a veteran at his position and much like Dez Bryant may be reaching the end of his rope with the Cowboys. He managed to accumulate zero touchdowns during the 2017 season.

His cap hit and salary make him a bit more expensive than the other players on this roster, and that could have a negative impact on his future with the team. Expect the Dallas Cowboys to go all in on rebuilding this wide receiving corps as they basically have more affordable options than long-term contracts.

With this incident and Williams recent injury, he could be on his last legs in Dallas.
