In this nothingness that has become the NFL off-season, it seems any little bit of regurgitated noise can be news. For example, the NFL and the players met yesterday and apparently will meet again today to continue negotiating while the litigation freight train continues to hurl itself forward at a pace that will derail the season. They do so on the upside by telling their lawyers to stay home. The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals won’t likely make a lockout ruling until July and the “Brady” case is set for September 12th.
So in other words, as I said, any little bit of noise can be news worthy. Like this Ricky Williams “tweet”:
I’d love nothing more than to finish my career winning a Super Bowl with the Dolphins, but that’s gonna take some cooperation from others.
Read into it what you will. Does this little gem indicate that Williams believes that the Phins can win the Super Bowl or is indicating an willingness to return to the team? Or both? Who are the “others” that he refers to? The other players on offense that failed miserably last season, the coaches, the owner, the management? It was only a short 5 months ago that Williams left the Dolphins 2010 season behind him while running off with his mouth about how poorly coached the team is specifically taking shots at head man Tony Sparano.
Are the Dolphins willing to forgive and forget and bring him on board if the season is shortened or there is no movement during an abbreviated free agency?
Far more questions that answers for sure.
