The Bears – who have not had a receiver with either 1000 yards or 6 TDs since Marty Booker’s 2001 season – have agreed to terms with former Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams, as reported by Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Williams’ best season was with then-Lions OC Mike Martz in 2006: 82 receptions, 1310 yards, 16.0 avg, 7 TDs. He was also coached by Bears receivers coach Daryl Drake in college.
The Bears needed this signing bad, after not explaining why they would trade away Cutler’s good friend – and one of the few red zone targets on the team – Greg Olsen and getting no player in return.
UPDATE: This is not a done deal, though will still likely happen. As with the Brandon Stokley agreement – even if it looks like an agreement will happen or even if an agreement has happened, it’s not official until they actually sign.
