Terrance Williams has become one of the better under-the-radar wide receivers in the NFL during his Dallas Cowboys career. He’s a big play waiting to happen who has improved the consistency with which he corrals passes.
If Williams is available for a reasonable price, the New York Giants would be wise to see how interested Williams would be in making the move to a division rival.
In four NFL seasons, Williams has 177 receptions, 2,791 receiving yards, 20 receiving touchdowns, and 131 first downs. He has an average of 15.8 yards per reception and 85.3 percent of his catches have either gone for first downs or touchdowns.
Having appeared in all 64 possible games during his four-year career, the 6’2″ Williams has become a durable and dependable threat in the passing game.
Williams could be an ideal complement to Sterling Shepard, who plays in the slot, and Odell Beckham Jr., who draws too many double teams outside. He’d take advantage of single coverage and draw the attention of safeties who would previously focus on containing Beckham.
In 2016, Williams dropped just two passes and showed a new ability to make plays that weren’t deep balls or vertical plays.
