Looks like Ricky won't be available next year:
Ricky Williams' career as a football player may be over after he decided not to accept a proposal to re-enter the NFL and serve a four-game suspension for violations of the drug policy, according to his attorney, David Cornwell.
Williams is currently on the league's reserve retired list and needed to make a decision by Thursday to try to be reinstated into the league. The league requires players on the retired list to be reinstated 30 days before the end of the season.
Williams met with Cornwell Wednesday night and Cornwell couldn't talk him into seeking reinstatement. More than a week ago, Cornwell worked out a proposal that would have allowed Williams to return this week and be suspended for the final four games of the season.
"Ricky is going to stay on the retired list and I have to conclude that his career is over," Cornwell said.
