Good story, IMO.

Sounds like he has his head on straight, good priorities. And maybe has for several years now.

Ricky Williams digging life, post-”graduation” from football

If you thought Ricky Williams might be missing football, think again.

The former Saints, Dolphins and Ravens running back, now a retired free spirit, said his job of the previous 13 year never appealed to him. Of course, that’s why there were absences in those 13 years as well.

Heh. He was always a hippie. Didn't belong in football.

Was damn good carrying the rock though. And tough as hell.

I thought this comment in the article was interesting.

It’s easy to dismiss Williams as a flake or a marijuana-smoking hippie, but it’s also an gross oversimplification. Williams battled social anxiety disorder for years, which led to the interview-in-helmet phase.

What's wrong with being a hippie?

He should have joined the "Doobie Brothers"!
He'd fit right in!

Haven't we been through this enough? It usually ends up that one of you old bastards gets mad at me for a couple weeks. Stick it to the man, Wade.

I have nothing against Ricky Williams indulging in the herb while he played. It seems like it helped him, as it does many people.

gbguy20 (24-Feb) : Martavis Bryant n whatnot
buckeyepackfan (24-Feb) : Smokey you can't lose something you never had.
buckeyepackfan (24-Feb) : Packers receive 4 comp picks for 2018. 4th, 2-5ths, 6th
Smokey (23-Feb) : Peters to the Rams
Smokey (23-Feb) : and another player is lost to another team. Deja Vu again !
Nonstopdrivel (22-Feb) : should have done*
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Hi 😊😉
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : I guess I should have did a refresh when I walked away from the computer.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : Peters is 25 with one year left on his contract at just over $3M
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Mel Kiper sticks with Marcus Davenport to GB in 2nd mock
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : As for Marcus Peters, how old is he an what's his contract years left?
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Packers got tired of Sitton's antics.
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Sitton was released not because of play or salary, but personality. He will not be re-signed.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : If we are planning on possibly cutting Cobb I can see the 2nd round pick. A second round pick for Peters is a pretty good deal.
Smokey (21-Feb) : I'd offer Cobb + a 3rd round pick + a 6th round pick in 2019 for the CB Peters from KC.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : I guess that is a highter round pick
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : Suggestion was a 2nd round pick. I would want a lower round pick. I think that is too much. A 3rd or 4th seems about right.
Smokey (21-Feb) : Cobb and WHAT PICK ?
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : A suggestion I saw was a trade of Cobb and a Pick for Peters. I think that would be a great move.
Smokey (21-Feb) : Sitton was drafted be GB in 2008, not a young man at this point, but still is a "bear" of a man.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : Sitton? Maybe if the price is right.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : I doubt the Packers would try to resign Sutton. But who knows? If the price is right?
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Bears declining option on Josh Sitton. He'll be Free Agent.
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Chiefs CB Marcus Peters trade rumors -- come to Packers!
