Better luck next year Ricky, that is, if Edge doesn't come to MIA in the off-season.
No one has forgotten that. The whole point of the meeting with the NFL is to get the year suspension removed. His lawyers think that there is a good chance for that to occur. And the NFL has NEVER came out and said that Ricky would be suspended for a year if he came back. That is an assumption made by the media due to the assumed fact that Ricky tested positive for a 3rd failed drug test.
The NFL keeps their records confidential, and we'll all know the story on Thursday. But I just find it hard to believe that the Dolphins would let him play on their team this year, EVEN if he is allowed back into the league this year.
