Ricky Williams is shown on the campus of the California College of Ayurveda in Grass Valley, Calif., in this Nov. 18, 2004 photo. He quit shortly before the start of the NFL season after again failing a drug test. And he rejected a deal that would have allowed him to serve a four-game drug suspension this season and return to the NFL next year. "Ricky indicated to me that he is no longer interested in resuming his career at this time," Williams' lawyer, David Cornwell, said in a statement e-mailed to The Associated Press on Thursday Dec. 2, 2004. He returned to the Dolphins in 2005, had another drug-related suspension, but continued his NFL career with the Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens before retiring in 2012.
