    WSVN in Miami, citing "a television station in Denver", is reporting that Dolphins running back Ricky Williams has failed another drug test.

    If true, Williams faces a one year suspension from the NFL. The Denver station is describing their source as "rock solid".

    The Dolphins have no comment at this time.

    That's actually kind of a shame after he did OK last year. Oh well . . .

    I wonder if his salary counts against the cap now?

    Wow, kind of too bad for him, does he get to keep the money?
    So much for the Dolphins plans of a possible trade with the Vikes or anyone else for Ricky.

    Curious. Didn't Ricky come back due to his quitting caused the Phins to demand repayment of the contract? I wonder what happens now? If he's not forced to repay the contract, could he have failed on purpose?

    Maybe.
    Maybe he knew he was about to be traded to a team he didn't want to go to,
    so he smoked his way out of it. :confused:

    Now there is one man ... who truly doesn't care about the money.

    Have a happy life, Ricky!

    The NFL and society are very clear about their rules - only taxable drugs like alcohol, toboacco and those manufactured by drug companies are morally and legally acceptable.

    Anything you can grow yourself without having the government tax it is strictly a no-no.

    Shame on you Ricky - you were warned.

    Atleast Ronnie Brown becomes a legitimate back for those Fantasy Owners out there.

    re:

    Sucks for Ricky. Sucks for Saban because he can't trade Ricky and get value anymore. But... this ends up being good for us.

    I thought Saban was smart to bring Ricky back, showcase him, and (I assume) try to trade him for some picks or players in the off-season. Now that Ricky screwed it all up, it will take just a little longer for Saban to build a strong team.

    Ricky's value has also plummeted, which may make him a nice cheap pickup if a team wants him.

    He didn't care about the money until he had to pay it back.

    Except that he'll be suspended for at least a year.

    Dolphins Draft

    Does this mean the Dolphins will be looking to pick up another back in the draft? Of course mock drafts are meaningless, but this just screwed a lot of them up!

    I can't believe all the statements of sympathy I'm hearing. Get a grip Pats fans. This is a division rival we're talking about. Ricky Williams flunking another drug test? Are you kidding me? That's great news!
