Ricky Williams details (from draftsharks.com)

ESPN’s Dan Le Batard reports Miami RB Ricky Williams is retiring.

Le Batard spoke to Ricky at great length by phone from Hawaii last
night, and the Pro Bowl running back had some strange things to say.
“'I'm finally free,” Williams told Le Batard. “I can't remember ever
being this happy…. The people in Jamaica, living in these little tin
shacks, they were the happiest people I've ever seen. “This is an
opportunity to be a real role model. Everyone wants freedom. Human
beings aren't supposed to be controlled and told what to do. They're
supposed to be given direction and a path. Don't tell me what I can
and can't do. Please.”

Apparently Ricky told head coach Dave Wannstedt the bad news on
Friday night. “Williams’ decision was clinched while on tour recently
in Europe with rocker friend Lenny Kravitz, who is so consumed with
working and fame's responsibilities that he doesn't have much time
for joy, or for himself,” Le Batard adds. “That's not what Williams
wants to become of his own life. Williams says with conviction that
no one will talk him into coming back, even though Wannstedt
continues to try.”

Draft Sharks just announced our “2004 First Round Bust Candidate” in
a feature article on Thursday, advising our customers to steer clear
of one specific player with their first round fantasy pick.

It was Ricky Williams...

And ESPN's series of the top 25 of the last 25 years has already done the top 25 busts of the last 25 years

In fact it was the show this week.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

well, i guess Ricky wants to come out of football with his help. He doesn't need any money so for him it makes sense.
