Mexico: Galgos de Tijuana sign former Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams

The Galgos de Tijuana of Mexico’s Liga de Fútbol Americano Profesional, LFA, have signed former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams for the 2023 season.

The 6’2″, 210-pound native of Dallas, Texas is entering his first year in Mexico, with the goal of turning around the Galgos organization’s fortunes. Tijuana finished their inaugural season last year with a 0-6 record, being the only team to miss the playoffs and the first ever team in league history to be winless.

Williams was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round (74th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft and ended up playing for Dallas for six years catching 232 passes for 3,377 yards and 20 touchdowns in 83 games. He also excelled in the post season with eight receptions for 198 yards and three touchdowns in three games.

He had played at Baylor University from 2008 to 2012 (NCAA Div. I) where he caught 202 passes for 3,334 yards and 27 touchdowns and was named as a unanimous first team All American selection. In 2011, he was a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award for the best wide receiver in college football. Williams would follow up that performance with a senior season in 2012 leading the nation in receiving yards with 1,832 receiving yards.

His 2018 season would end up being his final one in the NFL as he aggravated a foot injury for which he recently had surgery and was also suspended three games for breaking the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

The following season, 2019, he joined the St. Louis BattleHawks of the XFL who took him in the league’s supplemental draft but was one of the team’s final cuts. He signed with the Ottawa REDBLACKS of the Canadian Football League in 2021.

Williams had his most successful post-NFL career in the Fan Controlled Football league with the Zappers, where his team won the Peoples Championship.
