Ex-Argo Theismann rips Ricky
The former Washington Redskins and Toronto Argonauts quarterback and punt returner said Williams is a "good kid," but one that shouldn't be allowed to play on anyone's team anymore.
"Listen, we have rules in the National Football League," Theismann said. "It's real simple. Don't do drugs and you can play. It's a privilege to be able to play professional football. It's not a rite of passage. He's insulted the Miami Dolphins after they took him back and gave him a chance to play.
"Now he insults the intelligence of everybody that thinks that doing drugs is OK. To me, it's the wrong message to send to kids. It's the wrong thing to be doing, and the Toronto Argonauts have embarrassed themselves as an organization by signing him."
Theismann, who played for the Argonauts before all of you were born, said he no longer wants to be associated with the organization and doesn't take kindly to being mentioned in the same breath as Ricky.
"He's a disgrace to the game," Theismann said. "The man doesn't deserve to play football. He should go on with his life and treat his drug addictions or go do whatever he wants to do. He's been suspended from the NFL on multiple occasions. Doesn't anybody have any class anywhere? For gosh sakes, let the kid go do what he wants to do. He doesn't want to play football."
By the way, Joe Theismann will be appearing on your TV sets every Monday night this fall as one of the commentators for Monday Night Football. I'm sure all Ricky fans will welcome him into their homes.
