Question: What do you feel about trading LaMont Jordan for Ricky Williams or just getting Ricky in for a look? I think he's still at this point better than Jordan and with this new blocking scheme, his ability to catch and that he lives in and has said in the past he would like to play in California, this might be a good change. We would have a two-headed monster with Dominic Rhodes and Michael Bush getting healthy and learning from two good backs.

Answer: Jordan is better than Williams right now because Jordan relieves stress by watching World Wrestling Entertainment (of which I'm also a big fan) and following Maryland women's basketball. Williams prefers to find the nearest distributor of marijuana so he can "medicate" himself.
This question was submitted before news leaked that Williams had failed another drug test for marijuana, but fans always want to know if and when Williams ever would be a Raider.
The Raiders have been a haven for the NFL's outcasts in the past, but those players still wanted to play football. It's questionable if Williams still wants to play. And for all the losing, the Raiders haven't had problems with players being arrested, failed drug tests and the like recently.
Bringing in Williams wouldn't make sense unless the Raiders want a distraction. But before they could have him in, he has to be reinstated by the NFL. And with Commissioner Roger Goodell's stance on player conduct, Williams' chance of playing in the NFL again take another hit with each failed test.
