Washington Post wrote:The Ricky report

Reports that tailback Ricky Williams contacted the Miami Dolphins this week and discussed a possible return to the team at some point from his sudden retirement undoubtedly set off alarm bells in South Florida and around the league. But there was little to get excited about in the short term, even before Williams told the Miami Herald that he had no immediate plans to come back and merely was talking to the Dolphins at the behest of agent Leigh Steinberg after the club informed him of its intention to seek reimbursement of $8.6 million.

Williams has filed retirement papers with the league and, although they're not binding, they virtually ensure that Williams can't play this season. He reportedly has had three violations of the league's substance-abuse policy, mandating a four-game suspension when he comes back, if he comes back. League rules say that if he returns from his retirement within a year, that would count as a fourth violation of the policy, bringing a likely one-year suspension. So Williams would have to receive an exemption from the league to play this season, and that seems unlikely even if he wanted to play.

Still, the contact between Williams and the Dolphins supports the notion that he will return at some point. Steinberg left open that possibility virtually from the moment that Williams walked away from the sport just before training camp. Williams has begun to set up conditions for a comeback -- a renegotiation of his contract and assurances that he won't be overworked and abused by coaches.


So , either way, comeback or not, he isnt playing this season!

Ricky Williams: *puff* Dude, I should call the Dolphins and tell them I'm coming back next year. *puff*

Lenny Kravitz: That would be awesome man. I didn't know Dolphins could talk on the phone. I didn't even know phones worked underwater. *puff* Hand me the Cheetos.

Ricky Williams: I still got it. *puff* I just gotta run where they ain't.

Lenny Kravitz: Dude you were awesome in Madden 2004. *puff* I ran for like 6,000 yards in a season on Rookie when i played with you as my runningback. *puff* You should play on "Rookie" when you go back.

Ricky Williams: What the hell is Madden? *puff*

Lenny Kravitz: *puff* He's that guy on Mad TV trying to sell that buttered popcorn.

Ricky Williams: Ok, I'm on the phone to the Heat...we're going to jerk their chains *puff*

Lenny Kravitz: chains...slavery sucks dude, give 'em hell *puff*
