Ricky's odyssey

Ricky Williams is among the greatest running backs in Dolphins history and he certainly contributed to more highlights than lowlights since arriving in Miami in 2002. The enigmatic Williams failed multiple tests for marijuana, lived in a tent in Australia, studied holistic medicine and yoga in California and played an injury-shortened season with the CFL during his absences. After a season in Baltimore, Williams retired this year, reformed in the minds of Miami fans and forever a Dolphins favorite. But his sudden his retirement/suspension in the summer of 2004 contributed to the Dolphins horrific season. And his greatness only enhances the impact of his absences that season and during the 2006 and 2007 seasons.
