Ricky Williams is "Reconsidering" Retiring After 2010 Season
"My coach and general manager are here, so I can't really say," Williams told the audience in a brief question and answer session after the screening, "but I'm definitely reconsidering."
"I can't wait to see you be a doctor," Drew Rosenhaus, Williams' agent, said in an introduction.
The audience included Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano; Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland; teammates Channing Crowder, Ronnie Brown, and Patrick Cobbs; the newest New York Giant, Deerfield Beach product Jason Pierre-Paul; and Dan LeBatard (and his family).
After Rosenhaus' animated introduction, a quiet, reserved Williams told the crowd that was "Drew being Drew."
The documentary, a beautifully told account of what happened after Williams first retired directed by Sean Pamphilon and Royce Toni, debutes on ESPN tonight at 8 p.m. as part of the network's "30 for 30" series.
Williams told me he has no regrets about making a documentary about his life, which includes a lot of material he calls "very raw." He also said he almost never wonders what his life would be life had things gone differently when he was young. "I would have been really bored," he said. "If I was working in an office somewhere, it might have been a lot worse."
