    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 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:

    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.

    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.

    And because of that, he goes down as a martyr in my book!

    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!
