The forms 5th overall pick that Mike Ditka traded his whole draft away for is now in Baltimore. Ricky Williams will team up with Ray Rice in the Ravens backfield behind newly acquired fullback Vonta Leach.
I love this move. Ricky is a big and physical back with the capabilities of making guys miss in the open field. He will likely be a third down back and take over the duties that Willis McGahee had last year. Though the 34 year old back is not exactly in his prime, he has shown that he has plenty left in the tank with gaining almost 700 yards last year as a backup.
Ricky had some trouble earlier in his career with marijuanna and several suspensions in Miami. He also retired prematurely before returning to the
Dolphins a few years later.
