Reggie Bush"It's been an amazing ride," said Ricky Williams on WQAM in Miami. "I want to apologize for any hearts I broke. Hopefully, I was able to amend for that these last couple of years."

LIONS GUILTY OF TAMPERING? Pro Football Talk writes that the Lions engaged in tampering with Williams last season.

In explaining his decision to sign with the Ravens, Williams explained to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the running back inadvertently let it be known that the Lions engaged in a clear act of tampering after the Lions beat the Dolphins.

Writes PFT: "For me, last year when we played the Lions, Scott Linehan, who was the offensive coordinator here with coach Nick Sabin, he came up to me after the game, and he said that 'if you need a home, we'd love to have you on our team,'" said Williams.

"The NFL could investigate the Lions as to the comments that Linehan made to Williams, even without a complaint from the Dolphins."

Reggie Bush is listed as the starting running back, ahead of Daniel Thomas on the Dolphins depth chart. From Roto world: "There have been rumors that the Fins believe Bush can handle 15-20 touches per game, which would be a terribly poor evaluation of the player they traded for. Bush is interestingly NOT listed on the punt return depth chart. The Dolphins are fooling themselves if they believe Bush can stay effective or healthy as a true starting running back."...Jerry Rice on Randy Moss: "I had a hard time watching Randy Moss  because I hated to see a player  so naturally gifted not making the most of those gifts. He could have been better than me."...
