Dallas Cowboys: Are We All Overlooking Ryan Williams?

There's no denying the run game of the Dallas Cowboys took a hit when they lost DeMarco Murray, regardless of what Jerry Jones says about it. As Curtis Crabtree of Pro Football Talk explained, Jones is apparently convinced that the run game will actually be even better than it was with Murray.To be brutally honest, that's probably crazy talk. I'm assuming Jerry's still a little upset...

Ryan Williams is excited for the opportunity to run behind the Cowboys' offensive line

For Dallas Cowboys running back Ryan Williams, the NFL journey hasn't always been an easy one. After rupturing his patella tendon in his right knee during his rookie season, Williams has struggled to showcase the unique lateral agility that led the Arizona Cardinals to take him with the No. 38 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Fumble Rate Among Cowboys Running Backs

Turnovers will drive any fan crazy, but they are especially aggravating in close games or games that result in a loss. We often hear Jason Garrett say line one is ball protection, but the Cowboys were 12th place (tied) with 22 fumbles. This is an area the Cowboys will need to continue to clean up the coming season if they want to contend for a championship. One of the biggest gripes...

Could Ryan Williams lead the Dallas Cowboys in rushing in 2015?

As most of my readers know, I am probably leading the campaign for Ryan Williams to get carries in Dallas. And with the Cowboys losing DeMarco Murray to the Eagles and the only real competition on the roster being Darren McFadden, the path to a starting gig for Ryan Williams is pretty clear. The question I ask is this; can Ryan Williams lead the Cowboys in rushing yards in 2015?...

Cowboys reach extension with RB Ryan Williams

In what can be deemed purely a depth signing, the Dallas Cowboys have given running back Ryan Williams a new two-year contract. Williams, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals but has fallen off the relevancy radar in recent years.

Assessing the Cowboys' Final Roster

Well, running back Ryan Williams didn’t make it. The Dallas Cowboys decided to cut the former Arizona Cardinals running back after he spent training camp and preseason with Dallas. He ran well and ran hard but just didn’t show enough in the end to warrant a roster spot. It was likely his inefficiency on special teams that did him in, but no matter now, he’s no longer on the...
