RB: Ricky Williams Baltimore Ravens 2011

An enigmatic figure, there was no denying Ricky’s talent. Mike Ditka infamously traded his ENTIRE draft to get the first overall selection to pick him when he was coaching the New Orleans Saints. Williams at one point retired from football to practice massage therapy. He would come to the Ravens in 2011 in a back up role and provide useful production and would reach the 10,000 yard rushing mark. The Ravens were interested in bringing him back in the same role in 2012 but Ricky decided to retire instead. He is currently working as a coach a the University of the Incarnate Word.
