Williams says he'd play only one more season


October 8, 2004
NEW YORK (AP) -- Former Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams says he misses football but would only play one more season if he returns to the NFL.

In an interview that will appear in Esquire early next month, Williams also said he regrets not talking with Miami coach Dave Wannstedt before he abruptly retired before the season.

``I should have been man enough to have a conversation with Dave before all this happened,'' Williams said. ``But I didn't. I got scared, and I just told him I was retiring. It just came out.''

Earlier this week, Williams' agent, Leigh Steinberg, said his client had asked the NFL how soon he could return to play. The Dolphins are off to an 0-4 start without the 2002 rushing champion.

Williams has acknowledged repeated violations of the NFL drug program. The Dolphins say their understanding is he must serve a suspension for the rest of this season if he tries to return. The NFL has declined to comment.

By returning to the Dolphins, Williams could avoid paying $8.6 million for breach of contract.

When reached by the magazine, Williams was at a retreat near Brisbane, Australia, before his return to Los Angeles last week. According to Esquire, he was living in a $7-a-day campsite and had lost 20 pounds on a vegetarian diet.

Yes, unless the Raiders talks with Franco Harris come to fruition and they can convince him to come out of retirement.

I would love to see Rasta wearing the Silver and Black. Even if it's just for a year.
