Dolphins Sign Ricky Williams to Contract Extension

By  | 

MIAMI (AP) - Ricky Williams wants to stick around the NFL a little longer.

Williams signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him with the Miami Dolphins through 2010, according to salary information posted on the NFL Players Association Web site on Tuesday. The 32-year-old running back is scheduled to earn a base salary of $3.4 million this season and $4.35 million in 2010.

Williams told The Miami Herald that he talked to Dolphins vice president of football operations Bill Parcells and they came to an agreement that was "quiet and easy" without an agent.

Williams, the 1998 Heisman Trophy winner and 2002 NFL rushing champion, has rejuvenated his career and become a solid running back alongside Ronnie Brown last season.
