    He's been out of the league for 18+ months and he's coming back to the worst team in the league. Yeah, I don't see this turning out well.

    I wonder if he's worth a waiver pickup at all on my fantasy team. Can never have too many RBs even if they do play on bad teams.

    It could turn out to be a great story...although I wouldn't bet on it! How can you count on this guy?

    Re: Sources: Williams reinstated after 18-month suspension

    I would imagine he would have to pass a drug test before reinstatement. Assuming that, then I coudl assume that he has passed if Goodell is giving him a pass.

    Re: Sources: Williams reinstated after 18-month suspension

    He will be out in less than a month...Probably will never play before he is suspended again.

    Didn't he break his arm in the CFL? I don't think he had much of an impact up there.

    He may start on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list is what I'm hearing ... it seems he's had some problems with his joints.

    He may not practice right away ... they still have to hash out some of the details.
