One can look at this from many different points of view, but apparently the Miami Dolphins are either thin at running back, protecting one of their “assets” on offense or they simply are trying to add some continuity. any way you slice it, they have decided to retain one of their running backs for another season.
Specifically, the team has re-upped RB Ricky Williams on a contract that will keep him in Miami until at least 2010; he is due to make $3.4 million this season and $4.35 million in 2010.
According to Williams, he toild the Miami Herald that he approached team vice president of football operations Bill Parcells and they worked out an agreement that was drama-free. Perhaps this will work out for the best for the Dolphins as Williams has enjoyed a renaissance, becoming a solid complement to starting RB Ronnie Brown. And it wasn’t thet terribly long ago when it appeared that Williams’ career had – again, to coin a phrase – gone up in smoke, keeping in mind that he is a five-time offender of the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
But suffice it to say that this will be Williams’ best – and probably last – chance to resurrect his career, but Miami seems sold on his intentions; let’s hope for his sake that he is able to turn the corner for good. for his and the team’s sake.
