    Dolphins | Williams tests positive for marijuana
    Fri, 11 May 2007 08:43:17 -0700

    Chris Mortensen, of ESPN.com, reports Miami Dolphins RB Ricky Williams tested positive for marijuana in April and will not be allowed to apply for reinstatement to the National Football League until September, according to sources. The league's medical advisers that oversee Williams' rehabilitation program recently notified commissioner Roger Goodell of the positive test and made the recommendation that Williams not be allowed to apply for reinstatement until September, sources added.

    He won't be playing in the NFL.
    Some day he is going to have to pay the Dolphins the 8.6 million dollars or declare bankruptcy.

    He was on his way back to the NFL and then he tested positive again. It's not a matter of whether or not the NFL will reinstate him, it's becoming a matter of whether or not Williams can give up marijuana for football.

    I don't thin he can. He hasn't been banned from the game like say Pete Rose in Baseball but he might as well quit because he obviously can't give up on marijuana.

    No idea, but with Grant, I don't want him. Wynn & Herron will be back next year, B-Jack will be better next year (he's starting to show promise). No need for Williams.

    I say over only because it typically takes more than 2 weeks to get the test results back :mossfro:

    On the radio today some guy said that 'the Packers have picks, the Dolphins need picks. The Dolphins have Ricky, the Packers need Ricky.'

    I had a good laugh. I'll take Ryan Grant and the ever improving(cant get worse) Brandon Jackson. PLUS we have Mo as 3rd down specialist and other specialist(gatorade specialist).

    Keep the headcase in Miami.

    I seriously can't believe Goodel reinstated him.

    We don't need him, and Thompson doesn't want him.

    Good job Goodell, anybody that thinks weed is harmful is delusional and should see a shrink immediately. Our laws/regulations against weed is ridiculous, and completely disgusting. I hope Ricky tokes up on the NFL logo.

    Just say no to drugs(marijuana), meanwhile the NFL has beer commercials which kills far more americans right before they show the car commercials. Then they suspend players for drinking and driving. The NFL is full of hypocrites. When somebody gets beat up in a football stadium, its from some drunk a-hole, not someone who just lit up a cigarette. Its funny how you cant buy a joint but you can buy 100 beers for 50 bucks. Enough to get 20 people drunk enough to kill someone in their car. Ask K-Rob which drug he thinks is more dangerous. Ive said enough.

    Good luck Ricky

    MM was asked if the Packers should grab him..It was asked the other week from the Gary and Cliff show on wssp out of Milwaukee..

    Mm's initial reaction was to LAUGH OUT LOUD!!

    He did work with him in NO, but he didnt seem to want the team to go after him..but he did wish him the best and hoped he could get on the right path
