Ricky Williams To Tie The Knot This Weekend

r-willaims-wedding-dress1Total Pro Sports – Ricky Williams is about to add another chapter to his roller coaster of a life.  The Miami Dolphins running back is set to marry longtime girlfriend Kristin Barnes this weekend, just before the start of the 2009 NFL season.  Unfortunately, his honeymoon may not be so relaxing as 11 of the Falcons defensive players will be looking to lay a big hit on him next Sunday in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome.

Williams’ interesting career has included a Heisman Trophy, a few pro-bowl appearances, some marijuana problems (if you really want to call them problems), five league suspensions for violating the substance abuse policy, some traveling of the world to “find himself”, and a short stint in the CFL with the Toronto Argos.  Now it is time for him to settle down.

Ricky and Kristin already have two children, a 6-year-old boy named Prince, and a 2-year-old girl named Asha.

Williams now joins Eagles wideout Hank Baskett as notable NFLers who have made headlines for tying the knot this summer.

He has recently stated his plan to retire after the 2010 season as his extension with the Dolphins will expire then.  As for his life after football?  You can likely see him giving massages for a living once his NFL career is done.  Just don’t expect the married man to be giving any happy endings.
