Wide receiver Roy Williams is on his way to Chicago.
Days after the Dallas Cowboys told him he’ll be cut, Williams has reached a deal to join the Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting.
Williams and Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz worked together in Detroit in 2006 and 2007, when Martz was the Lions’ offensive coordinator. Those were by far Williams’ two best seasons in the NFL; he had 82 catches for 1,310 yards and seven touchdowns in 2006 and 64 catches for 838 yards and five touchdowns despite missing four games in 2007.
The Bears would kill to get those kinds of numbers from Williams. The Cowboys would have, too.
