intact. Safety has been widely speculated as an off-season target, however.

Roy's Role

Forget about the $45 million contract. Roy Williams might've arrived with go-to expectations, but he doesn't have to be that guy in Dallas. He doesn't need Terrell Owens' 80 catches for 1,000 yards and 8-10 touchdowns. Miles Austin's emergence eases that pressure.

Williams does, however, need to be more involved and productive. Sure, he's got to catch the ones thrown his way. But I do think there's something to the argument that you press when you get only two or three opportunities.

My solution has basketball overtones: get him going early, like feeding your center in the post for a couple of quick buckets. Don't force anything his way, like Owens' 20 targets against the Redskins in 2008, but run a quick slant for him on the first series. Something like that.

Despite low numbers by his standards, Williams still had coverage rolled his way. If he becomes a focal point, think how much more productive Austin and Jason Witten can be.
