Ricky Williams To Keep Playing Past 2010, But Will it Be in Miami?

Ricky Williams had previously stated that he wouldn't play football past the 2010 season, and we just assumed he'd move on to his dream of owning a chain of medical marijuana stores or something. But this morning Williams, who previously represented himself and was signed with Leigh Steinberg, signed up with power agent Drew Rosenhaus and ProFootballTalk says that he'd like to extend his career past this year. Problem is, his contract with the Phins only lasts until next season.

Williams reportedly hasn't solved his debt problems and Rosenhaus is notorious for getting his clients big pay checks. Williams may have had a stand-out season in 2009, but many of the Dolphins recent moves indicate that they're much more interested in developing younger talent than signing veterans to big contracts.

Next year's off season already got interesting.
