The Toronto Argonauts have landed one of the biggest signings in franchise history.
The Argonauts have called an afternoon news conference to announce the signing of suspended Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams, a league source requesting anonymity told The Canadian Press.
Williams and agent Leigh Steinberg have been in Toronto for the past five days - Williams arrived on his own three days earlier - and have met with Argos ownership and president Keith Pelley. However, the two sides could only go so far until the Dolphins gave their blessing.
That blessing has been given.
Williams will reportedly earn around $250,000 with Toronto, which would easily make him the highest-paid running back in the league.
