OXNARD, Calif. (Aug. 2, 2006) -- The Dallas Cowboys signed Pro Bowl safety Roy Williams to a four-year contract extension, securing the hard-hitting run-stopper through the 2010 season.
Financial terms weren't immediately available.
"I am going to be a Cowboy for life," said Williams, Dallas' first-round pick in 2002. "I'm staying here."
Williams, who turns 26 this month, had 81 tackles, three interceptions, 2 1/2 sacks and a touchdown last season.
He had a year left on his contract and would have become an unrestricted free agent after this season, but the new five-year deal replaces the 2006 year and adds four more.
Williams is the second player to sign a major extension in the past week or so. Tight end Jason Witten agreed to a seven-year contract on July 22. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said more contract extensions are in the works.
