    Ricky Williams Update

    From PFT.

    Williams was suspended in May 2006 for repeated violations of the substance abuse policy, and he is eligible to apply for reinstatement in May 2007. [UPDATE: We've been advised that Ricky is eligible to re-apply in April.]

    But reinstatement is not a no-brainer. Just ask Onterrio Smith, who has yet to get clearance to return to the NFL well over a year after being bounced out of the game. The key is that the player has to stay clean for the full year, passing all drug tests and complying with all terms of his treatment plan.

    If Williams is reinstated, he'll be available to the Dolphins at the bargain-basement price of $585,000 for 2007. Assuming that he still has some gas in the tank, giving him a third chance makes plenty of sense.

    Of course, the Dolphins also could trade him. But it's highly unlikely that there will be much of a market for his services until he shows that he can get it done on the field.

    We don't rule out a preseason trade, especially if a key running back on another team pops an ACL during a training camp practice or an exhibition game. For now, though, our guess is that the Fins will welcome him back, primarily because his salary is so low.



    I hope we dont trade him.Where else can you get a RB of that quality so cheap.Whatever we get in return would be minimal compared to the benefits.What do you think ?

    I second that.

    Ronnie would benefit from having Ricky back him up and we have a Good running back at a cheap price. I said good because as you know being out so long and age we all know he is not great. also I saw photos from california he looks way to skinny.

    He's cheap. The monies owed have no effect on the salary cap. Bring his bargain basement *** back to Miami.

    We need him back. You'll never get equal value for him.
