Running back Ricky Williams has prepared a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell requesting reinstatement back into the league, his agent said over the weekend. Williams was suspended last April for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy for the fourth time. Williams is not required to wait to send the letter until April 27, which marks the 1-year anniversary of the date his suspension was upheld by the league. The formality of sending the letter will signal the start of the reinstatement process, which includes an investigation into Williams' behavior since last year.

Ricky Williams' reinstatement is complete, with the Miami Dolphins saying they'll welcome him back on the field beginning Monday - the day after they face the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. First-year coach Cam Cameron decided to let Williams rejoin the team after they met yesterday. The NFL lifted Williams' 1 1/2-year suspension Wednesday. "The meeting was positive," Cameron said. "He'll be a member of this team and will start with us Monday. He's a Miami Dolphin. " For months, Cameron had been mum regarding whether he would want Williams.

Ricky Williams will miss the rest of the regular season with or without surgery for a broken ankle. The rehabilitation would be six to eight weeks either way, so the New Orleans Saints (7-3) are getting ready to replace their star with two unproven running backs. Chad Morton primarily has been used as a kick returner. He had 12 carries for 33 yards in Sunday's 20-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers. Jerald Moore was claimed off waivers from the Raiders in August. Originally a Rams third-round draft pick in 1996, he had not touched the ball in the NFL in two years until Sunday, when he had one carry for 2 yards.

Ricky Williams apparently has done it again. The Miami Dolphins running back has violated the NFL substance-abuse policy for the fourth time and faces at least a 1-year suspension, according to reports. Two Miami Herald sources confirmed a report by a Denver TV station that Williams had violated the policy, although neither would say whether Williams had failed a drug test or if he had missed a required test, which also is a violation. On three previous occasions, Williams tested positive for using marijuana.

While many fans are hoping to see more of Ricky Williams in the future, the Eagles were hoping to see less yesterday. They did: 20 pounds less. "That was probably the No. 1 thing most of the NFL clubs were out here to see," Eagles coach Andy Reid said through the team's public-relations department. "Ricky's dropped 20 pounds since the NFL combine in Indianapolis [in February]. He's down to 224 pounds now. " Reid, director of football operations Tom Modrak and scouting director John Goeller were among 200 witnesses, including NFL scouts and coaches and college students, who gathered at the University of California-San Diego for the two-hour workout.

Ricky Williams, the 2002 NFL rushing champion, rejected a deal to serve a four-game drug suspension this season and return to the field next year. He will stay retired instead, and his lawyer, David Cornwell, doesn't believe Williams ever will play again. "Ricky indicated to me that he is no longer interested in resuming his career at this time," Cornwell said in a statement e-mailed to the Associated Press yesterday. The 1998 Heisman Trophy winner needed to let the league know his decision yesterday so he could be moved from the retired list to the suspended list by the deadline.

Ricky Williams will serve a four-game suspension beginning next month, then will be reinstated to the Miami Dolphins by the NFL, according to his lawyer. But the league says no agreement has been finalized. "I am pleased with the National Football League's proposal," attorney David Cornwell said yesterday. "I think Ricky will be pleased, too. " Williams must approve the deal, which would move him from the retired list to the suspended list for the final four games of the schedule.

CHEATING HAS become so commonplace in sports it's surprising Rock-Paper-Scissors conglomerates haven't caught competitors using scissors that can cut rock. Today's cheatgate involves accusations levied against America's Cup defending champion Oracle Team USA in what is being called potentially one of the biggest scandals in the regatta's 162-year history. Oh, the humanity. "For sure," said Italy's Luna Rossa skipper, Max Sirena, when asked whether he thought Oracle cheated when it admitted it modified its boats without permission of the Measurement Committee.

In football, there are only three possible outcomes: Win, lose or draw. In the draft, the possibilities are endless, even for the Eagles, who will select fourth overall when the NFL's annual roll of the dice commences Thursday night. Will they select Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher? Will he even be there? Will Chip Kelly choose his former player, Oregon outside linebacker Dion Jordan, with his first pick as Eagles coach? Or will he choose Oklahoma tackle Lane Johnson? Or maybe Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei?

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell writes a weekly sports column for the Daily News from a fan's perspective. His column appears Wednesdays.   I REMEMBER IT as if it happened yesterday. I was home watching the NFL draft and the commissioner said, "With the second pick of the 1999 draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select Donovan McNabb of Syracuse," thereby dashing my hopes that the Birds would draft Ricky Williams, the great running back from Texas. But even worse, I heard thunderous booing cascading toward the stage from a group of Eagles fans who had come to New York on a trip organized by the voice of the Philadelphia sports fan - WIP's Angelo Cataldi.

The 2002 league rushing champion was scheduled to fly to Miami for a physical today and meet with coach Cam Cameron, said Williams' agent, Leigh Steinberg. The first-year coach, whose team is 0-9, said he talked with Williams by phone for "5 or 6 minutes" yesterday, but hadn't made a decision about activating him. "I want to see where he is, and also let him know where we're headed, and we'll go from there," Cameron said.

Ricky Williams, who has applied for reinstatement in the NFL after a 1-year suspension for substance abuse, could find a home with the St. Louis Rams. Coach Scott Linehan, the offensive coordinator when Williams played for the Miami Dolphins in 2005, said yesterday he'd consider adding Williams to the roster as a backup. The Rams need depth behind Steven Jackson. "He's proven himself with me," Linehan said. "I know there would be a certain amount of risk involved based on that, but I would just because he deserves that based on what he was able to do. " Williams, who will turn 30 in May, played in Canada last year and is eligible for reinstatement after April 27. Earlier this month Williams' agent, Leigh Steinberg, sent a letter asking that he be allowed to return to the Dolphins.
