Ricky Williams' 2002 season - #TBT

New, comments

It's Throwback Thursday, so we will have a little fun today. We take a look back at some of the 2002 highlights of Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams. Williams finished the season with a league high 1,853 yards on a league high 383 carries. He scored 16 touchdowns that season, his first with the Dolphins after beginning his career with the New Orleans Saints.

Williams averaged 115.8 yards per game that season, the tops in the NFL, and earned a Pro Bowl and First-Team All-Pro selection for his efforts.

He added 47 receptions for 363 yards and a touchdown.

Playing for seven seasons with Miami, Williams carried the ball 1,509 times for 6,436 yards and 48 touchdowns. He reached the 1,000 milestone in three seasons (2002, 2003, 2009) and averaged 4.3 yards per carry. He is the team's all-time leader in carries and second in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.

(Note: Just ignore the random Oronde Gadsden highlight - or don't because it was an awesome catch.)
