Default Ricky Williams out for season

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3128681

Quote:
In need of running back help because of an ankle injury to Jesse Chatman, the Dolphins activated halfback Ricky Williams from the league's exempt list.


The Dolphins had until December to make a decision on Williams, but Chatman is listed as questionable with an ankle injury and wasn't moving well toward the end of the week. To make room for Williams, the Dolphins released running back Samkon Gado.

Williams is returning to the NFL after 18 months. He served a drug suspension that was extended from May until two weeks ago on the recommendation of the league's drug counselor. This summer, Williams moved to Boston and spent time with drug counselors reviewing his life and past habits.

It is not known whether he will be on the active roster for tonight's game against the Steelers (ESPN, 8:30 ET), but it is likely. Williams had a great week of practice and players on the team remarked how well he did and how much of an asset he could be for this game.

Default Gado deactivated ... for a pothead??

Crazy. He can't even beat out a pothead who's been out of the league for 2 years. And he was our second string back 3 months ago.

Might be more about showcasing Rickey to trade him in the off-season.

Ah-ha!! Thats a good point, because at the end of the day Gado is not their future and they should have Ronnie Brown back next season. Since this season is shot for the Dolphins (although I am rooting for a perfect season), why not???

Default Re: Gado deactivated ... for a pothead??

I can't imagine Williams having any trade value at all....I don't think anyone will give a pick for a back that hasn't played for years and is a chronic (no pun intended) substance abuser/policy offender. He may back up Brown next year or be cut, but I can't see anyone giving anything for him.

Eh, I'd give a 7th for him.

Default Re: Gado deactivated ... for a pothead??

Gado didn't make the team because he isn't that good. never saw the field with Miami before Williams came back. and that was with some banged-up guys ahead of him.

and i think with Chatman and possible Lorenzo Booker behind him, i bet Ricky is traded to the highest bidder in the offseason. they're obviously rebuilding.

Default Re: Ricky Williams activated/Samkon Gado relased

C'mon now... The Raidahs would gladly trade something away for Williams. Not that they are in need of a running back mind you, but because he 'fits in'. Seriously though, there is some desperate sucker team out there that would offer something for Williams - maybe not much. But if you're Miami take whatever may be offered.

He won't be worth much if his shoulder's torn up from that cheap shot that he took from James Harrison. That **** was messed up.

Ricky is done for the season because of a torn chest muscle.

That just sucks. Will they pick Samkon back up?

In a somewhat related matter, after watching the game last night I have concluded that Chatman is a terrible blocker. He got blown up on multiple occasions. He isn't a terrible runner but he doesn't have what it takes to stay in this league, IMO.

yeah that's why losing Brown sucked that much more. the BEST back in the league at blocking for his QB. absolutely. oh and he caught the ball as well as any WR in the league, etc etc.

as for Gado, yeah they'll probably pick him back up.
