|Ricky Williams looking for extension -- Wed Aug 18 5:40 pm --|
Dolphins' RB wants to play through 2011
|"Ideally, right now, I would like to get a year extension with the Miami Dolphins, play this year and next year and then really focus on my schooling," Williams said. The Dolphins are aware of his desire for an extension. He's 33 years old, borderline ancient for a running back. But head coach Tony Sparano has marveled at Williams' condition in training camp and football operations boss Bill Parcells is a fan. With top running back Ronnie Brown out with a broken foot last year, Williams rushed for 1,121 yards and 11 touchdowns. Williams' base salary for this season is $4.35 million. (ESPN.com)|
FF Today's Take: We'll know after this season if last year was simply an aberration for the aging back, or whether Ricky Williams can continue to be a dominant force into his mid-thirties.
