With his horrible offensive line and the number of carries he receives (plus his fondness of marijuana and the NFL's drug testing), I have no doubt in my mind he was sincerely unhappy in the NFL.
I wonder if he had a little talk with another heisman rusher from texas in Earl Campbell and didnt want to end up the same way... Everyone knows how painful it looks when you see Earl Campbell...
As a huge ricky fan I am really dissapointed, I was really looking forward to a bounce back year... He was definetly one of the best players in the NFL to watch because of his speed and running style, unfortunately I will go throught this season without being able to see that ( and i just got NFL Sunday Ticket).
I also have him in my big money league which is a huge blow as I was hoping to make a run for the title with him and Shaun Alexander Carrying me... lucky for me I drafted Barlow last year relatively early and I can start him as my second back which isnt bad in this league but its not ideal... And now thomas jones is my 3rd.
Our draft is on august first so I hope they find/ trade for a replacement by then.
