    No way I take Ricky Williams. He walked out on his teamates. That's the end of the line for me. There is no coming back from that.

    His ticket to wear my Uniform would come with the Re-Hab certificate saying that he completed the Re-Hab programs assigned to him.

    I'd take him for one season...he'll be out to prove the media wrong...I'm sure he'd play hard for ONE SEASON.

    GMs only care about winning, not morals. As a result, most will have no problem taking Ricky Williams. They'd probably be happy to, because chances are they can get him on the cheap. If Latrell Sprewell can return to the NBA after chocking his coach, no one will think twice about signing Ricky Williams.

    Pan, you're right, man, but they'd pick him up at their own peril of losing the other players on the team... If there's one thing an athlete - a man - hates, is a guy who cops a heel because the mood moves him... What Ricky did was selfish...

    I didn't realize that when it happened, and gave brother the benefit of the doubt, but now I see the cat as being all about himself... He's only coming back to avert having to pay back that $5-million he owes from the bonus... He aint coming back to really play no football, because he truly hates football... That's cool, but his selfishness will not endear him to his teammates, and his opponents are going to absolutely being trying to murder him out there... No, I wouldn't EVEN dare pick up this man's contract if I was a GM... Too Risky on too many accounts...

    Peace!

    I would pass on this one if i was a GM but....................

    Rickey won't play this season but believe me he will play next season for another team other than the dolphins who will trade him so they don't have to deal with his betrayal or selfish ways. He is only going to return because he owes them 8plus million dollars.... the brother would rather be chilling and puffing the dro......
    Problem is not alot of teams "need"him other than the dolphins but greed and the chance to improve their teams will put him in another uniform real soon!
