According to his lawyer, Williams will then be reinstated to the Dolphins by the NFL. "I am pleased with the National Football League's proposal," attorney David Cornwell said Tuesday. "I think Ricky will be pleased, too."
Analysis: Williams needs to approve the deal, which would remove him from the retired list to the suspended list for the final four games of the season. Following that, his contract with the Dolphins would be in force.
Uh, you mean he's going to be able to play next year!?!? I thought he was going to be suspended for at least a year?
Of course, this isn't coming from any NFL source, so it could be a bunch of crap. Especially since the quote is coming from his attorney...
