Blogcasting the National Football League, Blogcasting the NFL
Miami Dolphins RB Ricky Williams is doing everything he can to make sure his ongoing NFL comeback is a successful one. After playing in just 13 games the past three seasons, Ricky has yet to miss a workout during 11 weeks of a strictly regimented offseason program. And to hear him talk makes me wonder if this is the same Ricky Williams that smoked pot and acted “weird” while seemingly throwing away his National Football League career:
“This is the hardest I’ve worked. Coach Saban worked us pretty hard, but I think this new regime is making every single person on the field prove themselves. Not just prove they can play football, but prove they are going to lay it on the line on a consistent basis.”
Ricky also spoke about preparing himself for life after football and being a responsible man — going back to school, getting a “real” job and taking proper care of his kids. This sounds like a new and improved Ricky Williams. I don’t claim to know what he’s been through. I’m also not trying to make any excuses for him. But I do believe he deserves this opportunity and I’m glad he’s making the most of it.
