Ricky Williams switches to Rosenhaus

Ricky W.jpgRicky Williams recently changed agents, despite announced plans to retire after 2010.

Mike Berardino of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel noted Friday the NFLPA lists Drew Rosenhaus as Ricky’s agent, marking a move from long-time agent Leigh Steinberg.  (We’ve confirmed the information is correct.)

It’s possible Williams is just looking for a change to help him with opportunities after football. Or perhaps he’s considering extending his career.

Williams is due $4.35 million in 2010, making him one of the best paid committee backs in football.

UPDATE: A league source tells PFT that Williams plans to play after 2010.

  1. It makes sense….he needs someone to get him enough money to buy all his pot after retirement.

  2. The one time, ok more than one time, punch line has been doing good for himself on and off the field. this is why there is second chances

  3. Personally, I hope he plays for a few more years since he took like 4 yrs. off from football.

  4. In a day you’ll have an article: “Ricky Williams wants a new conract”, where he wants to be the highest paid RB..

  5. I love Ricky. How the NFL has any juisdiction over smoking pot during your off time is beyond me.
    Ricky was never charged with a crime. He didn’t cheat. As far as I know pot doesn’t make you artificially faster or stronger.
    For those who say “smoking pot is against the law so the NFL can fire people who smoke pot.” So, would it be OK for AT and T to put a speed monitor in your car and fire you for speeding. After all, it is against the law. The NFL and other employers should be limited to taking actions against people who are convicted (or at least charged) with a crime and those who cheat.
    Or, alternately, lawmakers should be subject to the same requirements as NFL players. Wonderlic tests and random drug tests in congress would be great. And those who are stupid or who test positive would get fired.

    Your arguement sounds like one that a stoned pothead would make.
    You can’t compare a violation of criminal law with a traffic law violation. Dickhead.

  7. Actually you are the one who sounds like you are stoned. The point is that Ricky didn’t violate any law. Ricky wasn’t even charged with violating a law. The point is that Ricky didn’t violate any law. Ricky wasn’t even charged with violating a law. The point is that Ricky didn’t violate any law. Ricky wasn’t even charged with violating a law. The NFL has taken it apon itself to regulate personnel behavior that doesn’t affect the game.
    Maybe the NFL should set up checkpoints to inspect every player who travels across state lines to see if they are carrying a weapon or booze or cigarettes.
    I think the NFL should go to every players house to see if children are left unattended. Against the law.
    The point is the NFL has become an extralegal entity, violating players civil rights. It isn’t a stretch to extend these legal violations to other companies.
    And, no, I don’t smoke pot.

  8. what does AT&T have to do with speeding?
    better, what does that have to do with anything?
    love ricky, but hate rosenhaus. good to hear ricky wants to keep playing, although it sounds like it’s going to cost whomever an arm and a leg to do so.
