The Dallas Cowboys may have another troubling issue brewing as receiver Terrance Williams could be given a suspension for an off the field incident.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, Terrance Williams has had a rough couple of months. He has been a non-factor during the 2018 season and has struggled to make much of an impact. Off the field, he had an incident during the offseason that had many wondering if he was going to make the team. Now those chickens may be coming home to roost.

Williams could be facing some league discipline from an arrest that occurred in May. The incident stemmed from him being publicly intoxicated and allegedly crashing his car. The car jumped a curb and caused some property damage, which he paid for.

After completing a state-mandated alcohol awareness education course, his charges were dismissed but that does not mean the NFL was not paying attention. The league has been pretty strict in enforcing policy rules and pursuing violators guilty or otherwise.

It was surprising to hear that a suspension was looming considering we are into Week Three of the regular season and have heard nothing about any discipline being handed down all summer. We have seen other players do worse and not even get a sniff from any NFL disciplinarian, however, the league tends to make examples out of players to get a message across and Williams could be in their crosshairs.

What does this mean for the Dallas Cowboys? Likely nothing, Williams is not a consistent weapon or factor for Dallas. Cutting him would still cost the team money, but he was unlikely to be re-signed before this incident even took place.

All eyes have been on the wide receiving corps as Dak Prescott is struggling to find weapons in this offense. Now how the Dallas Cowboys can make their offense more “Dak Friendly” and remove all of their top receiving talent is beyond me but hopefully, things come together.

Tavon Austin has looked like a legit deep threat if he is given the right play. Allen Turns has been a solid chain mover who can get open in the most crucial situations.

Deonte Thompson is explosive as well, so there are players on the roster who can get adequate production. There is just a lack of star power/the ability to consistently make plays at the wide receiver position.

Terrance Williams was supposed to fill a much bigger role and be motivated by the opportunity that was given to him when Dez Bryant left, however, he responded by getting arrested for public intoxication and recording two receptions in two games for 18 yards.

The writing is on the wall in Dallas, a massive overhaul of the wide receiver position needs to occur. The Dallas Cowboys need to do everything they can to acquire active playmakers who can help Dak improve.

Finally, with their defense clicking on all cylinders, the Dallas Cowboys should do everything they can to get their offense more potent and productive.
