Ricky Williams has reportedly told the Ravens he plans to retire. He was under contract for 2012 and had previously indicated he planned to play next season, but apparently changed his mind. This is not, of course, Ricky's first retirement, as he first walked away from the game after back-to-back seasons with at least 380 carries in 2002 and 2003 before returning. We'll see if this one sticks. Here's what he had to say on Twitter after the news broke:
Thank you all, but this ain't it, I'm gonna do something really special. "Be you and change the world"
Whatever else you want to say about Ricky, his presence did tend to make the NFL a more interesting place.

Thanks a lot, Dak Prescott. Now more people will think the fourth round is still a gold mine for quarterbacks, but the data says otherwise. The update to our quarterback draft study for 1994-2016 shows little has changed: finding a good QB is really hard.
