The Interview
Ricky Williams

Williams, 30, was reinstated by the NFL last November after an 18-month drug suspension.

Dan Patrick: When is the last time you talked to Bill Parcells?

Ricky Williams: In the training room, last week.

DP: Do you know where you stand in Miami's plans?

RW: It's interesting. In a team meeting he was going through what he is looking for, and he says, "I don't want any punks. I don't want any troublemakers." And I am sitting there thinking, "Oops, so I guess I am not going to be here." A couple hours later I come into his office, and he told me that he wanted me and he really believed in me.

DP: What situation gets you feeling, "This is when I normally used to get high"?

RW: Usually it's a matter of curiosity. I like to explore hidden depths in things, whether it's a conversation or a book. That's where I feel tempted to smoke, because it helps me go deeper into things.

DP: So if you were reading The Hobbit....

RW: No, it's usually more philosophy or scripture. I don't usually mess with fiction.
