The Dallas Cowboys faced significant departures of key starters this offseason, leaving voids in their roster. Opting for a conservative approach in free agency, they aim to address these gaps internally, banking on the development of their backups.

Defensive end Sam Williams emerges as one such player poised for a breakthrough. A former second-round selection by the Cowboys, Williams gears up for a pivotal season, collaborating with teammate and standout edge rusher Micah Parsons in his preparations.

Taking to social media, Williams shares workout snapshots with the caption "our year twin," reflecting his anticipation for an expanded role, potentially alongside Parsons.

Amidst high expectations following his selection from Ole Miss, Williams showcased promise as a prototypical pass-rushing prospect, boasting elite physical attributes and athleticism. His collegiate tenure featured impressive stats, including 32.5 tackles for loss, 22.5 sacks, and six forced fumbles, with a notable achievement of breaking the Ole Miss single-season sack record during his senior year.

In the Cowboys' formidable edge rushing rotation, Williams logged 27% and 28% of defensive snaps over consecutive seasons, balancing responsibilities between pass rushing and special teams duties, particularly punt-blocking.

With veteran defensive end Dorance Armstrong's departure to the Washington Commanders in free agency, the spotlight now shifts to Williams. The 25-year-old, who tallied 26 tackles and 4.5 sacks across 17 games last season, aims to elevate his impact as a complement to Parsons in the upcoming 2024 season.
