Suspended Dolphins RB Ricky Williams said that he would consider returning to the CFL next season but that he hasn't made up his mind yet as to whether he would apply for reinstatement to the NFL.
Williams, who is serving a one-year suspension from the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy for the fourth time, is under contract to the Dolphins through the 2008 season.
"I'll have to talk with my family and Coach [Nick] Saban to really see what the best decision is for me," Williams told USA Today. "As of right now, it doesn't exist. Nothing does, except today.
"I could die tonight."
Saban said Monday that he would continue to support Williams in his endeavors, but right now he's focused on the players he is coaching this season.
"Ricky said that [not me]," Saban said of Williams' desire to play in the CFL in 2007. "I will address [Ricky's situation] at the [proper] time."
