Williams on move? Dolphins, Saints talking
ESPN.com news services
The Miami Dolphins and the New Orleans Saints have made contact about a trade that would send Saints halfback Ricky Williams to the Dolphins, Miami head coach Dave Wannstedt and New Orleans general manager Randy Mueller told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
The talks were described as preliminary, according to Mortensen.
Besides the Dolphins, Mortensen reported that the Saints also had contacted other teams to gauge interest in Williams, the NFC's fourth leading rusher last season with 1,245 yards.
"I told him we'd get back to him if we were interested," Dolphins vice president of football operations Rick Spielman said in Sunday's Miami Herald.
Earlier this week, Williams and agent Leigh Steinberg discussed the possibility of a trade to Miami.
"It's a win-win situation," Williams told the Herald earlier in the week. "I'm finally happy in New Orleans, so I could stay happy here or I'd be happy in Miami."
