Ricky Williams is an iconic NFL player.
With 12 years in the League under his belt, plus a spell in the CFL and a Heisman Trophy to back him up, you would think that Ricky had it all.
But remember that famous contract that screwed him royally?
If you don’t, this video breaks it down nicely.
Essentially, Ricky decided that he wanted the big Saints cash up front, with the rest being driven by bonus incentives.
This would allow Ricky to ‘cash in’, and make the big jingles the more he scored.
But the contract wasn’t that fair, & Ricky would soon find himself having to deal with the ‘man’ as well as returning much of that cash.
Ricky got screwed royally by the NFL, especially when he started getting into weed. The NFL is notoriously anti-weed, so he put a target on his own head as soon as he did it.
An interesting video nonetheless. They need to bring him back in a commentator capacity.
