While he’s busy cleaning out the veritable closet for the Miami Dolphins (coach and GM), Bill Parcells has done something a little unexpected: he’s keeping Ricky Williams around, at least for the 2008 season or until someone accepts a trade offer for Williams’ services. The Miami Herald has more:


Williams’ agent, Leigh Steinberg, wrote in an e-mail to The Miami Herald that Williams received a letter from the Dolphins dated Dec. 31 and signed by Parcells renewing Williams’ contract for 2008.

Steinberg wrote that he will wait until Parcells has a chance to settle in with the Dolphins before contacting him. Steinberg also wrote that Williams is doing well in his rehabilitation from a torn pectoral muscle that ended his 2007 season after six carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Nov. 26.

Such a letter would seem to indicate that Parcells wants Williams back next season.

It would seem Ronny Brown’s recovery time played a role in Parcells’ decision to keep Williams on but would an opposing team actually take a chance on him if Brown does come back 100% healthy?
