NFL Rumors: Dallas Cowboys to make Terrance Williams starting wide receiver

Although rookie Terrance Williams spent the vast majority of his season as a starting wide receiver – filling in for the injured Miles Austin, ESPN Dallas believes it’s a role that will be awarded to Williams come the 2014 season.

But there is so much more to Williams’ season, and it’s time for him to take over a starting role at wide receiver. The Cowboys are expected to part ways with Miles Austin to save $5.5 million against the salary cap.

That would mean Williams would start alongside Dez Bryant in an offense expected to increase the number of passes thrown with new play-caller Scott Linehan.

Austin is expected to be an early June cut which would leave the Cowboys with a collection of Williams, Cole Beasley and Dwayne Harris to fight out the second receiver role.

Of course, the Cowboys could look for a cheap free agent to provide competition for the role, but there’s little reason not to give it to Williams – despite his struggles to end the season.
