TDIF: Which Ricky Williams has a birthday today?

Miami Dolphins, Tales from the Vault, TCIPF Staff, This Day in NFL History

He’s not the Ricky Williams who played for the Raiders in 1985 and 1987, or the one from Dallas who was a Colt in 2002 and ’03.  He’s Errick Lynne Williams, of Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, the Texas Longhorns, Saints, Dolphins, Toronto Argonauts, Dolphins, and presently, the Baltimore Ravens.

In 2002, the first year of his first stint in Miami, Williams had the best rushing season of his career, gaining 1853 yards — or almost 20% of his current career total of 10,009 yards (and counting).  Here’s a look back at his record breaking ’02 season as originally presented in the appropriately titled 2002 Dolphins highlight film, “Record Breakers.” Happy Birthday, Ricky…Hook’em!
