As of now, it remains to be seen how long Williams’ ban will be, but the expectation is that it will be between two to four games for a violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
The NFL has yet to notify Williams of a ruling in writing and it’s unlikely the Cowboys will hear anything about Williams situation before their Week 3 game against the Seahawks.
The charge against Williams was dismissed after he completed a mandated alcohol awareness education course and paid for the damages his Lamborghini did to a light pole.
Had Williams had been charged with driving under the influence, Moore says that precedent indicates could get a four-game suspension by the NFL. But since he wasn’t arrested at the scene of the accident, Williams walked away with a lesser charge.
Williams, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2013. He played out the final year of his rookie contract and made a base salary of $1.686 million for the 2016 season before signing a four-year, $17 million contract that included $9.5 million guaranteed.
Williams stands to make base salaries of $3.5 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Williams has appeared in two games for the Cowboys and caught two passes for 18 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
