In case you didn't catch Sportscenter...

Ricky Williams is talking about coming back. I'm sure we all knew, just wanted to throw out a confirmation.

Re: In case you didn't catch Sportscenter...

I saw a short article on ESPN.com about that this morning. I can't imagine wanting him back. I mean, no doubt he is a beast of a running back, but does anyone really want to deal with him after what he pulled? The guy is a walking drug suspension waiting to happen. He's a total headcase. Most of his teammates hate him. And the Dolphins have Cedric Benson now, so I say move on.

actually they have ronnie brown now, not cedric benson. i don't think any team wants him after the way he left, plus he's bound to get more drug suspensions.

That's what I'm saying. Benson is like Williams but without the drug addiction.

My bad......thanks for correcting me. I must have been the same stuff as Ricky

Re: In case you didn't catch Sportscenter...

It's Ronnie Brown in Miami, Benson is in Chicago. But I get your point, why bring Ricky back and screw up the situation in the locker room when you have a very promising back on your hands as it is.

He's worth it if you give him little guaranteed money and lots of incentives. He's a talented back, someone will try to get him, but they won't give up much to get him.

Wow. Glad to know that I paid close attention in the draft. We ALL must have been smoking with Ricky.

I think he might be worth it for some team, but I really don't think the Fins should even think about it. Way too many guys ready to slap him around in that locker room.

I'm also not sure how much of a market is out there for any RBs right now. It's probably the position in the least demand. Travis Henry is still looking for a team willing to give up a conditional 3rd round pick; Sean Alexander had zero interest in teams willing to trade for him; Nobody bit on the Colts' willingness to trade Edge......it really seems like everyone is pretty happy with their RB situation. And if he comes back, the Fins would still have rights to him......not sure they'd be able to trade him for anything worth mentioning.

I think Oakland would be a good fit for him all the way around.

Rumor is he's petitioning the league for jersey number 420.

This means Ronnie Brown will be worthless in Fantasy Football.

Re: In case you didn't catch Sportscenter...

According to this article at SI.com, he's down to 195 pounds. That's what happens when you stop lifting weights for a full year. I just can't see him ever being the same player, he's like 30 or 40 pounds below his playing weight. And it's not like he had any chub, he was all muscle at 230 pounds.

Re: In case you didn't catch Sportscenter...

If he can get back into playing shape, he would be a beast and a gem for the right team.
Miami as a team will get over last year the moment he produces a string of 3 to 4 touchdowns games in a row and get them winning.

The situation that Ricky wants is a team where he doesn't have to be the work horse but carry a shared load.

Potiential suitors for him would be the:
Miami Jets
Skins Cowboys
Eagles broncos
Kansas City Titans
Raiders
teams that take him and want to keep him from retireing agian would have to be willing to use a 2 back rotation system similar to the steelers. The sutior would also likely already have a good starting running back because it will take a while for the rust multiplied by the drug use to ware off Ricky.

Why not the Raiders? They don't have enough money, although people believe they fit his profile, they have Lamont Jordan who jus left a 2 back system and hated it... The whole woodson thing has screwed up their cap which they didn't anticipate.

Why the skins: Gibbs uses many backs and he would be the power back that Gibbs covets. He's a Dan Snyder guy and his talent would be appealing to the owner. When and if he becomes fully recovered the skins would have handsdown the best backfeild in NFL history. Drawbacks obvious character issues, possible rust issues that gibbs wants to stay away from.

Me i'd take him. Put him on the practice squad until he was back to NFL shape and upgrade him to run with portis. He has also been practicing yoga, which has probrably added higher indurance and dexterity. His value to me as a compliment to portis outweighs for me his obvious character issues. If anyone he wouldn't be better than betts officialy need to be slapped!
