BTW, if Ricky Williams did decide to play baseball, Steinbrenner wud probably give him big, big bucks, probably stealing him from the Red Sox.

ricky would have to get a hair cut first.

He shaved his head in December last year. The nose ring would have to go though.

Marijuana is illegal in the US. Going to Mexico or Jamaica in the offseason or on vacation for a bye week and smoking up out there, then coming back home to play football isn't illegal. But that's really beside the point, which is the private lives of NFL players is their business.

If a player wants to smoke some ganja in the privacy of his own home that's his business. I don't see why the NFL should test for non-performance enhancing substances.

rashaan salaam, thats why. he got hurt, started smoking weed everyday and lost all desire to do anything related to football.

HAHAHA! I didn't know that. But in all seriousness, if it's true it's Salaam's own damn fault. Guess he found himself in the wrong league.
