Running back Ricky Williams had an unconventional NFL career, to say the least. It appears he will be retiring, closing the book on a legacy that includes a Heisman Trophy as a member of the Texas Longhorns.
The news came out on Tuesday morning that Baltimore Ravens running back intends to retire. Williams developed an early reputation in the NFL as a flake who didn't live up to expectations, but many longtime fans of the Texas Longhorns remember him fondly as an unstoppable running back who sprinted his way to a Heisman Trophy in 1998.
As SB Nation's own Jason Kirk notes, Williams leaves behind a complicated NFL legacy and closes the door on a long career that included a stint as one of the greatest college players of all time
During his time with the Longhorns, Williams put up 6,592 yards and 90 touchdowns, in addition to a multitude of other mind-blowing stats and NCAA records.
His professional career had more than its share of ups and downs, but he finished with a more than respectable career. His NFL totals -- if this is truly the end of them -- include over 10,000 rushing yards and over 100 touchdowns in 12 seasons as a pro.
