We hear that in spite of Nick's objections, he will allow #34 to play for the Argonauts this season. Nick doesn't like the prospect of Williams getting injured, but realizes that Williams has child support, and needs to make to make some money.
But, interestingly, there is a legal wrinkle: The CFL's rules state that any player who is entering his option year is a free agent and therefore free to sign with any NFL team. But, Miami still owns his rights, so Nick wants it explicitly stated that he will return to Miami. And that's what they're trying to work out.
Oh, and by the way, the running back that Williams will replace is none other than John Avery.
