Roy Williams possibly coming to Chicago

It's no secret that one of the more pressing needs the Bears have to address in free agency besides obviously offensive line is wide receiver. With TE Greg Olsen reportedly headed to Carolina to catch passes from Cam Newton and Jimmy Clausen, wide receiver or some type of receiving threat will need to be addressed this off-season. Olsen was pretty much Jay's only big target in the passing game and was a guy that Jay looked for when he was on the run or had to make a quick decision. With now only Earl Bennett, Johnny Knox, Devin Hester, CFL star Andy Fantuz, and Kellen Davis the current receiving threats on the roster, Martz and Jay are going to need another target and preferably a big possession WR.  Enter Ex-Lions and Cowboy WR Roy Williams who is supposedly on the Bears radar because of his history with OC Mike Martz and Receiver coach Darryl Drake.

 

 

Me personally I don't like the move, but can understand the move given the condensed off-season and his familiarity with the system.  Roy certainly would bring a different element to the Bears receiving group regarding his size (6-3 215 pounds). His best season came under Martz in Detroit where he posted 1310 yards and 7 touchdowns on 82 receptions. The Cowboys trade for Williams in 2008 with the thought that he would be teams future #1 WR when Owens contract was up there, but during his tenure there saw receivers Miles Austin and Dez Bryant bump him down the depth chart and he was eventually released earlier this week.
