If he is going to use his stint in the CFL to eventually get back onto an NFL roster, it appears that former Minnesota Vikings tailback Onterrio Smith had better get back onto the field.

Famous ex-Argonaut speaks his mind about Ricky's coming to Toronto,... and it's not pretty...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Ex-Argo Theismann calls Williams 'disgrace to game
ESPN: NFL (30.05.2006 15:00)
Former quarterback Joe Theismann, who began his professional career with the Argonauts and later went on to star in the NFL with the Redskins, said he was "embarrassed now to be a Toronto Argonaut" in an interview with ESPN Radio's Colin Cowherd.

 
YIKES!
 
One peripheral thing,... I didn't even know Theismann started his professional football career in the CFL.

The absolute latest on "my boy" Ricky.  As it turns out, it isn't his Achilles' that's ailing.  It's a (minor) heel injury.  Here are all the details (I know you all want to know ) from "The REAL Feed":
 
Ricky Williams injures heel on locker-room door
ESPN: NFL (02.10.2006 15:09)
Ricky Williams, who is playing in the CFL this season while he sits out a one-year suspension from the NFL, injured his left heel in a freak locker-room accident on Saturday.
