Watch Former Dolphin Ricky Williams Hug An Actual Dolphin

Around his suspension and first retirement from the NFL, Ricky Williams played for the Miami Dolphins for about six seasons. 

On his trip to the Grand Bahama Islands, however, Williams got to do one thing dolphin-related he'd never done before: swim with and hug the team's namesake. 

The vacation comes conveniently after the running back was the focus ofSports Illustrated documentaryabout his post-NFL career in the marijuana industry.

Williams was a first round draft pick (No.5) in 1999 from University of Texas. In 2002, his first season with the Dolphins, Williams was the NFL's leading rusher with 1,853 yards, a First-team All-Pro and a Pro Bowler.
