Default Did Ricky fail another drug test?

Jason Cole of The Miami Herald confirms that Dolphins running back Ricky Williams has failed another drug test.



He faces a suspension of at least one year.



Team spokesman Harvey Greene declined comment.



''Because of the confidential nature of the league's substance abuse policy, we can't comment on any aspect of that program,'' Greene told Cole.



Williams stayed clean for all of the 2005 season. Recent reports indicated that the Broncos were interested in trading for him. With his 2006 season in jeopardy, Williams would be 30 if he returns to action in 2007.



Williams is under contract for two more years with the Dolphins, at base salaries of $545,000 and $670,000.

Here's more from the Miami Herald:
Quote:
Dolphins' Williams tests positive for drug useBY JASON COLEjcole@MiamiHerald.comDolphins running back Ricky Williams faces at least a one-year suspension from the NFL after testing positive for drug use a fourth time under the league's substance abuse policy.
Two sources confirmed a report by WSVN-TV that Williams had failed the test, although neither would say the substance Williams used. On three previous occasions, Williams had tested positive for using marijuana.
Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene declined to comment Sunday night.
''Because of the confidential nature of the league's substance abuse policy, we can't comment on any aspect of that program,'' Greene said.
Williams returned to the NFL this season after retiring for the 2004 season. He missed the first four games of the season and was fined an additional four weeks of salary from the second and third violations of the substance abuse program.
Those positive tests had occurred in December 2003 and in the 2004 offseason. Williams returned to have a productive season.
Williams has spent much of the offseason in Northern California studying yoga and holistic medicine.

My guess? What he has been doing. Not give a damn and smoke a joint?

I'm waiting for the "Let's try and get him!!" while trying to pass off that "he's misunderstood" and that "we can change him" comments.

1) That's why I stated "If this is the case".

2) If it is, there is no way in hell I would take this guy after failing his fourth drug test. What's the point? The guy will be suspended or in rehab.

3) Never stated that you personally stated he was a saint and yes the man can run a football and in my opinion, no, that's not all that really matters. As for not being able to see the gain in offense. Sure I can, but I don't see it with a guy who's too busy smoking dope and failing drug tests. What the guy does off the field effects the team. What good is a player If he keeps getting in trouble? Next thing you know, he will bail out halfway through the season and head to Jamaica.

I'm sure the Rooney's will take your comments with a more open mind....lol. Me personally? I think the guy is nothing but a bum that only cares about himself. He's worthless. But hey, let's sign him to a nice fat contract and watch him fail drug tests year after year. I don't see how anybody could want this guy on their roster.
