Ricky Williams of Baltimore Ravens planning to retire after 11 seasons - ESPN

Baltimore Ravens running back Ricky Williams has decided to retire from the NFL after 11 seasons, he announced Tuesday.

"The NFL has been an amazing page in this chapter of my life," Williams said in a statement released by the University of Texas. "I pray that all successive adventures offer me the same potential for growth, success and most importantly fun. I want to thank all my fans, teammates, coaches and supporters for the strength they've given me to overcome so much."

Williams briefly retired once before, missing the 2004 season. He was facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy before he shockingly announced he was leaving the game. He returned in 2005, then left to spend the 2006 season with Toronto of the Canadian Football League.

On his Twitter account, Williams wrote: "Thank you all, but this ain't it, I'm gonna do something really special. 'Be you and change the world,' "


Williams
Since winning the Heisman Trophy at Texas and joining the New Orleans Saints in 1999, Williams has rushed for 10,009 yards and scored 74 touchdowns.

He is one of only 26 NFL running backs to rush for more than 10,000 yards in a career.

Then-Saints coach Mike Ditka traded all of his draft picks in 1999 and New Orleans' first- and third-round picks in 2000 to pick Williams fifth overall.

What an interesting good career

Congrats Ricky!

Said Pope Benedict: "WOW ... that ring is bigger than mine!!!"
