Sources: Williams reinstated after 18-month suspension

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has decided to reinstate Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams after a suspension that lasted 18 months because of Williams' violation of the league's substance abuse policy, sources told ESPN.

The Dolphins have been notified of the commissioner's decision. It is unknown if the team will welcome him back but it is expected they will have a two-week roster exemption to make that decision.

Williams met last week with league administrators who had raised concerns even though doctors at a Boston-area treament center where Williams spent a good portion of four months were very supportive for his reinstatement, sources said.

The administrators of the substance abuse policy were satisfied with Williams' response to their concerns, sources said, clearing the path for Goodell to reinstate him.

Williams also had written Goodell a personal letter of appeal that accompanied the medical data regarding his treatment since he had a positive test in April, which extended his one-year suspension.

Are the Phins still paying on a contract for him or is it void when he is not playing?


If they aren't paying for his dumbass, I wouldn't even let him back on the team. Let him go to the Raiders.

You would think the anti depressant pills would be better than the weed but apparently not. I remember some nice runs he had a dolphin and saints though.

Hey we are just getting started! Remember the 49er to Chiefs QB pipeline? They have to small of a sample size to measure, they need more!

Don't you mean Hurad for their 2nd and Ricky...

I think we ought to look towards the future. Cut Huard, sign another "promising" young QB. If Brodie fails then play the young one we already have, if he fails, then play the one they should sign after cutting Huard.

Huard is not the answer so the best move is to clear the roster space and look at other young QBs.
