The Chicago Tribune reports today that NFL’s Ricky Williams, 34, is hanging up his star football boots. Writes the ChicTrib:
“Austin, TX —Former All-Pro running back Ricky Williams has decided to retire after 11 NFL seasons. The 34-year-old Williams was a star at the University of Texas and a heralded first-round pick of the New Orleans Saints. He spent the majority of his pro career with the Miami Dolphins and played his final season with the Baltimore Ravens.
“The NFL has been an amazing page in this chapter of my life,” Williams said in a statement released by the University of Texas, where he won the 1998 Heisman Trophy. “I pray that all successive adventures offer me the same potential for growth, success and most importantly fun. I want to thank all my fans, teammates, coaches and supporters for the strength they’ve given me to overcome so much.”
Williams ran for 10,009 yards with 66 touchdowns in 147 NFL games, but he will also be remembered for his numerous violations of the NFL’s drug policy, an anxiety disorder and a solid final few seasons after coming back from a sudden retirement and year-long suspension.”
Already, ESPN is asking, “Will Ricky Williams stay retired this time?”
