It’s been rather quiet lately on the Ricky Williams front, but a report today says that if Williams gets reinstated in September, don’t look for him to be a Dolphin for very long. John Clayton of ESPN wrote today in his blog that Williams will either get released or the team will try to trade him if he is able to come back to the team. Ricky was scheduled to apply for reinstatement in May from his drug suspension, but had another positive test for marijuana.
The thought is if the Dolphins were willing to say good-bye to Fred Evans right after his arrest, then Williams is not going to be held in much more high regard. The bottom line is that Williams has gotten chance after chance, but he has failed each time. The Dolpins are ready to move on, and it looks as if new coach Cam Cameron is going to make it happen when and if Williams is allowed to come back. The team will look to trade Ricky, but unless there is a team willing to take a huge chance, it looks like Miami is going to have to just release him.
