With the pad of pink slips already out of the desk drawer for receiver Terrell Owens, NBC Dallas-Ft. Worth reports that the Dallas Cowboys used a second sheet on safety Roy Williams. (Not receiver Roy Williams, Sid. Safety Roy Williams.)

The move comes two days after Williams gave the team a “trade me or cut me” ultimatum, and presumably after the team exhausted all potential trade opportunities.

As of last week, the Cowboys were actively shopping the seven-year veteran, but could find no takers.

Williams had been griping for nearly a year about his perception that he’s not a good fit in the specific 3-4 system used by coach Wade Phillips.

Per Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News, the move saves $2 million in 2009 cap space.

Look for the Dolphins and former Dallas head coach Bill Parcells to possibly make a play for Williams.

So hes not good in a 3-4?

That eliminates half the league.

That dude is one of the worst safeties in football. He makes Pollard look like Polamalu.

I'm faster than Roy Williams. no thanks.

Bring him in for a look.

I'd MUCH rather have Pollard. At least if the coaches let Pollard play to his strengths instead of trying to force him into a Cover 2, he MIGHT be a good SS.

Williams, not so much.
