Dolphins coach Nick Saban reiterated his preference for a two-back system, and Ricky Williams, coming off a 172-yard outing against the Titans, said he would be fine with sharing the backfield with rookie Ronnie Brown again next season. "I like Ronnie," said Williams, who has 635 yards on 140 carries, less than half his career average of 318 carries a season. "I find myself out there rooting for Ronnie, not ever wishing I was in there, but excited to see him run and be in there. "This part of my career I don't play for numbers. I don't play for anything except it's my job to play. I could be happy doing whatever, if I was on special teams, if I was on the bench, anything I would do." Williams, 28, also said that the $8.6 million federal judgment hanging over his head for breaching his contract last year is no factor in his decision in wanting to return to the Dolphins and that he'd be quite content in making the league-minimum $545,000 next season. "Five-hundred thousand dollars is plenty of money," said Williams, who made approximately $285,000 this season after eight weeks of pay was taken out because of his four-game suspension and fines. "I don't think I could sit here and tell you that's not enough money. It'd be kind of foolish when I grew up with my mom who had three kids and did it by herself on $50,000. "[Money] never has been an [issue] and I don't think it ever will." It's believed that Williams could wriggle out of his contract and become a free agent by declaring bankruptcy to void the $8.6 million judgment. Williams, who has three children by three different women, doesn't think he'll have to go that route, but he's certainly not afraid to. "I brought the situation on myself so I have to deal with it," he said. "I don't need to file bankruptcy. Even if that [happened], that's not so bad. I can't see things going in a way that I'm going to be put out by it. "As for my kids, they're stuck with me. Kids don't need money, they're happy. Their moms aren't as happy."
