Cowboys, Terrance Williams agree to deal
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys have three more agreements to reach with their draft picks after securing third-round wide receiver Terrance Williams to a four-year deal.
Williams, the No. 74 pick overall, will receive a signing bonus of roughly $619,500.
The Cowboys got Williams with the extra pick they acquired in their draft-day trade with San Francisco, moving from No. 18 in the first round to No. 31 where they picked Travis Frederick.
A Dallas native, Williams caught 97 passes for 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior at Baylor. He finished his collegiate career with 202 catches for 3,334 yards and 27 touchdowns.
The Cowboys expect Williams to be their No. 3 receiver behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. After a slow start at the rookie minicamp, Williams’ play improved and had a productive minicamp, which ended last week.
The Cowboys have yet to sign Frederick, second-round tight end Gavin Escobar and third-round safety J.J. Wilcox, but expect deals to be completed quickly.
