There are various reports that wide receiver Roy Williams‘ deal in Dallas is signed — it is not. The deal is not done. The framework is agreed to, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is pushing for the deal to get signed as soon as today.
But it is not done, it is not a $20 million guarantee as reported, and it is not going to be a $20 million guarantee when the deal is signed.
The two sides have agreed to the deal’s framework — five years, $45 million. But now the question is how much money is guaranteed, and how the money is spread in the first three years of the deal. Those are the parameters currently and actively being discussed.
But it is not a deal until there are signatures on the dotted line. So far, none.
