Ricky Williams has been reinstated in the NFL following an 18-month ban for smoking pot, a retirement, a spiritual journey to India and Australia, and a one-season flirtation with the CFL (not necessarily in that order).  I'm not sure if he ever got that holistic medicine education in Colorado or not, but he definitely considered it.

The league said Williams can begin attending team meetings and practicing immediately, but will not be able to play in a game until Miami, currently winless, plays at Pittsburgh on Monday night, Nov. 26…

Williams rushed for 3,225 yards in the 2002 and 2003 seasons after being traded to the Dolphins from New Orleans. He then retired in 2004… before returning to the Dolphins in 2005, when he ran for 743 yards alternating with rookie Ronnie Brown.

My God, I'd rather buy a house on a fault line than invest in hopes that this turns out well.  It's like the Jurassic Park of running back experiments.  Seems like a good idea scientifically, then nature takes over and Newman from Seinfeld gets eaten by the spitting dinosaur.  Oh yeah and the Dolphins go 0-16.
