Ricky Williams's sudden retirement now looks simply like a vacation. A few days after an arbitrator said Mr. Williams would have to repay the Miami Dolphins more than $8.6 million for breaching his contract, the pariah running back asked the NFL to clarify his playing status in light of positive drug tests. This means the former Heisman Trophy running back could be back on the field soon, or at least serving a drug suspension.
