In an instant-messaging session with Williams on Wednesday, I asked the former All-Pro halfback whether he planned to play football again, and his answer was, "I honestly do not know."
Besides, as Williams correctly pointed out, on-field heroics can cover up a lot of sins. Even among the most ardent Ricky bashers, the first time he takes a handoff, bursts through the line of scrimmage, bounces off a linebacker and outraces everyone to the end zone, it will be greeted with unabashed cheers.

rafael said:Two things that stood out to me from that article. First, he is still 40 pounds under his playing weight and there was no mention of him trying to put the weight on. Second, he still has no clue as to whether he wants to come back. This is my biggest problem with, you can't trust him to stay. I don't mean for several years. I mean for a month or even a week.

I don't see any point in bringing him back for 2 season (including 2005 being a 12 game one). The team needs to just move on with Ronnie Brown as the #1.
