The long, strange, and interesting NFL storybook of Ricky Williams may have it’s final chapter.
League sources state that Williams has informed Ravens officials of his plan to retire. After watching the AFC Championship game, Ricky looked like he still played very hard. Maybe there will be other chapters in his book, if other teams come calling …. Dallas?
Williams has been full of surprises, during his whole career. He was under contract to the Ravens for another season. Williams said a few weeks ago he planned to continue playing and the Ravens would have gladly welcomed him back after a solid 2011 campaign.
Williams is 26th all-time in rushing yards. Williams first “retired” in 2004 to search the world. He was also suspended for all of 2006, but returned to the Dolphins and wound up topping 1,000 yards rushing in 2009 for the fifth time in his career. Williams has been a very interesting player over the years. Maybe he is not be done running just yet.
