Dolphins have filed a lawsuit in federal court against running back Ricky Williams, who an arbitrator ruled owes the team more than $8.6 million for breaching his contract.
 

Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene would not say Saturday if the lawsuit was related to the arbitrator's ruling last month.

"It's in the judicial system and we cannot comment further," Greene said.

The suit was filed Friday, and was not entered into the court's online registry by Saturday. A message left Saturday for Williams' attorney, David Cornwell, was not immediately returned.

Williams left the Dolphins shortly before training camp because he disagreed with the NFL over a disputed drug test. He is seeking to return to the league.

The Miami Herald has quoted Williams as saying he has failed three drug tests - in May 2002, last December, and sometime last spring.

Williams rushed for 3,225 yards in two seasons with the Dolphins, including a league-best 1,853 yards in 2002.

I'm just saying that he'd be more likely to come back to help them (most liely by getting traded) if they don't take him to court for this.

even if he does come back, there has to be something in his contract somewhere saying he cant just get up and leave.
