    Denver TV station KDVR reported the violation Sunday evening after talking to an NFL source examining the possibility of trading for Williams.

    You're kidding , right??

    think about what you are saying..........that the Broncos think that they can fool the Dolphins into thinking that:

    One of their players failed a drug test

    That the Denver Broncos know about it.....but nobody has told RW or the Dolphins

    That this speculation by would prompt the Dolphins to trade RW w/o them verifying the facts

    That the Dolphins would believe that Denver still would want to trade ANYTHING for a player facing a 1 year suspension

    Please tell me that no one here really believes that this is really in the realm of possibility????? :shakeno:

    So we have a Canadian and a Coloradan station reporting conflicting information about an athlete based in South Florida who is believe to currently be in India? This makes sense...

    it's not on their website but it's also a tv station.. it said that a undisclosed team most likely denver since the drug reports came from denver that a team trying to trade for williams was trying to put bad press on him to lower it's value...

    but I may be wrong as usually I trust US news... but hey never know

    ok, i'm officially confused as to what's going on. The French are reporting that an american football team knowingly released a false report of an american football player that's on ANOTHER american football team having failed a drug test so that said american football team can hoax the other said american football team into trading him for less than his possible value when the original said football teams knows that said amercian player would not be avaiable to play for one season? And, said player is not in america, canada, OR France? is that what i'm supposed to be understanding?

    actually it could make sense to me, I mean, aside this is true or only a rumor, it already have affected ricky's trading value. 1. Other interested teams may not have interest after that 2. the broncos will say they wont give that much on a player that almost got suspended for a year

    So what you're saying is that Denver forgot that we changed coaches and the GM last season and think they are still dealing with dumb and dumber who i'm sure a rouse like this would work on. However, Saban and Mueller are a little bit smarter than that.

    So far major sites like espn.com, foxsports.com..cbssportsline, the miami herald's site...have reported this and cited that Denver station there would be hell to pay if they weren't positive..

    I am not saying I believe this, but if Denver did start the rumor it could slightly drive down his value. Ricky is coming off a clean, impressive season where no one is really thinking about him possibly being suspended and just by spreading something like this it reminds people just how close he is to being out for a year. I really don't see them doing that, and I can't see why Saban would do business with a team that would do something like that, but it is something that could lower his value a bit.

    maybe you're right about that, but im sure they would have less competence of other teams going after him.
