    Ricky Williams suspended again

    Looks like Ricky failed his 4th test, and it likely gone for the year (just heard it on TSN). Didn't say what drug he tested positive for, but I think we all know what it likely is.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    it's too bad.

    He had the potential to be the best running back ever.

    He blew his own career, it's really kind of sad.

    What an idiot. I am glad that he decided to do it now before we ever thought about trading for him.. What a waste of space. I am sure most people would do anything to be in his situation, and he blows it..

    Whatta joke. There are players who'd do anything just to get a sniff of the League, and Ricky's doing everything he can to get out.

    Good riddance. The Dolphins are better w/o him anyways by letting Ronnie Brown develop.

    How do ya like them apples?!

    Report: Williams tests positive for fourth timeESPN.com news services


    Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams has violated the NFL's substance abuse policy for a fourth time and is facing a one-year suspension for the positive drug test, Denver television station KDVR reported on Sunday.

    The Miami Herald, citing two sources of its own, confirmed the station's report that Williams had failed the test, but neither media outlet would say which substance Williams used. The Herald also said a league source would not confirm the report.


    Williams has tested positive for marijuana three times and served a four-game suspension when he returned to the NFL last season following a one-year retirement.


    Dolphins coach Nick Saban told ESPN he was not aware of the report and would not comment, citing the confidential nature of the league's substance-abuse policy.


    Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene declined to comment when reached by the Herald on Sunday night.


    "Because of the confidential nature of the league's substance abuse policy, we can't comment on any aspect of that program," Greene told the newspaper.


    Williams was also fined the equivalent of four weeks' salary after his second and third violations of the NFL policy, in December 2003 and the 2004 offseason.


    Williams abruptly retired from the NFL in July 2004 and the Dolphins fell apart, losing their first six games and finishing 4-12 -- their worst season since the 1960s.


    At the time of his return, Williams was ordered to pay the Dolphins $8.6 million for breaching his contract, although there has been no financial resolution between him and the team. He was scheduled to be paid the league minimum of $540,000 last season, but was docked four games' pay due to his league-mandated suspension and was fined another four games in pay, reducing his take to $285,882.


    Williams' base salaries for the two coming seasons are $545,000 and $670,000, the minimum for a player (he entered the league in 1999) of his NFL tenure.


    Motivated partly by the need for a paycheck, he accepted Saban's offer to return for the 2005 season. When he reported at the start of training camp, Williams publicly apologized for the impact caused by his retirement and teammates unanimously embraced his return.


    The Dolphins finished the 2005 season 9-7, winning their last six games. Williams gained 743 yards and scored six touchdowns.
