Ricky Williams Says He’s Looking Forward to Free Agency

Dolphins free agent running back Ricky Williams just turned 34. At that age most running backs have retired but Williams is looking forward to free agency for the first time in his career.

Although he would like to return to the Dolphins, he is not sure that will happen.

“I mean, really, I have no idea. I feel like I’m in a good position,” Williams told Sid Rosenberg of WMAQ by way of Andrew Carter of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. ” I feel like if I stay here, it’ll be good for me, it’ll be good for my family. I feel like if I go somewhere else, it’ll be good – it’ll be good for my family. So you know, I think in my position I think the extended off-season has been good for me because I’ve been waiting since 1999 to be a free agent. So it’s been nice to enjoy these past couple months and the fun part, when we see who’s offering what and what’s the best situation for me, I’m looking forward to it and I think it’s going to be a good experience.”

Williams also touched on his relationship with Sparano. Williams, of course, made some critical comments about Sparano during the 2010 season but Williams said he hoped “we can move past it.”

“I think sometimes when it comes to sports, and especially relationships between players and coaches, that people lose track, lose a sense of reality,” Williams said. “And I think if you look at any relationship, for the relationship to be productive and to move forward and to grow, sometimes things have to be said that one person or the other person is not going to like to hear. But I think I know that Tony is an adult and I’m an adult and I’m sure we can move past it. And whether he wants to admit it or whether I want to admit it, I think there was at least a shred of truth in there and I think if he can appreciate that and learn from it, from the voice of the players.”
