I am surprised this isn't here yet, but according to Jason LaCanfora from NFL, Ricky Williams at the young age of 34 has decided he will once again retire from football. I also found a link on ABC News.

I was saddened that Ricky wouldn't be finishing his career here the Dolphins, but I will tell you, he will always be a Dolphin to me. He has been one of my favorite players for years.

I know he has done some controversial things. He walked out on his team to go smoke pot, and live in a tent in Australia somewhere. However, what we know now of Ricky, I think we can all understand that he had to fix issues in his life and went to some extremes to do so. Ricky Williams instead of being complacent with his role in football, he put himself first and tried to find out what was eating at him. He should be commended for that.

He eventually did come back and him and Ronnie Brown were a great one two punch in football. He came back to the team and played his ass off as much as he could. Put up a 1000 yards in 09, and had a few more to go along with that. I don't know if anyone is agreement with me, but I truly believe Ricky could have beat Walter Payton's records if he continued to play ball. Am I delusional on that one? Perhaps. But no one could deny his talent. Furthermore, Ricky was honest, he didn't mince words, he told you what he was thinking. Sometimes, what he told you made you think more. Ricky Williams is and was an interesting human being who I have respect for for that reason.

In my opinion despite all that has happened, we all love Ricky for the most part. I think he deserves a spot on the ring, but it will take a long time because there will have to be some convincing.

Good luck number 34. I wish your Ravens would have made the Superbowl so you could get that ring, but I guess other things happen.
