AP reports that Ricky Williams will sit out another NFL season, after violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy for the fourth time:

The suspension represents a financial blow for Williams, who owes the Dolphins $8.6 million for breaching his contract when he retired in 2004. His return last season was motivated partly by the need for a paycheck, and that may be a reason for him to return in 2007.

Drugs versus millions of dollars and superstardom. It would seem like an easy tradeoff for most men, but Ricky apparently can’t put the demon weed (and/or other substanced banned by the NFL) on hold until he retires.
