Post Will Ricky Williams retire?
The back and forth speculation continues ... and it is fueled by Ricky's wishy-washy comments. To me, I wondered how the increase in carries at the end of the season would have an effect on him. I know that the body hurts more in your 30s than in your 20s. He also has to be thinking about life beyond the NFL. I think a traveling show featuring Ricky would be popular, and he has to be thinking that every year that he plays the game is a year that adds more problems to his body. I think the running back position takes more punishment than any other position.

Dolphins running back Ricky Williams is 33. There has been speculation that the 2010 season could be his last. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald points out, there is recent Twitter evidence suggesting this is the case.

There were rumors that Williams would be doing a reality TV show in 2011. However, Williams posted on his Twitter account, "I am NOT doing a reality TV show. I am beginning discussions [for] a potential travel show."

Salguero writes:

So what does this have to do with the decision to play beyond 2010 or not?

As Williams added with another tweet, the travel show work would begin in February of 2011 after the NFL season is over.
And that means if the show gets off the ground and is a success, Williams would find himself doing something he once decided he loved more than football. Williams would essentially be doing what he did in the fall of 2004 when he retired from football and traveled around the world.

Except this time Williams would be getting paid.

A travel show could EASILY be done during the offseason. Really it could be done over the course of a couple of months. How many places are you going to be able to travel and how long would it take? I'm not saying he won't retire, but I don't see this as some smoking gun that indicates his plans to retire.

I can see he's getting frustrated with people continuing to question his desire to play. In those tweets alone you can sort of read between the lines... "I'm here to play football so leave me the hell alone"

This guy has other passions that don't include football, and most people can't accept that.

I'm pretty sure he already said 2010 will be his last.

He then changed his mind and said that he doesn't know how long he'll play.

True on both accounts.

I assume that Ricky will be back in 2011 barring any major injuries. Parcells loves him and will extend him if he is willing to play. Ricky seems to be committed to doing this for as long as his body holds up.
