PUT YOURSELF in Ricky Williams' shoes. The guy owes the Miami Dolphins $8.6 million and, well, it's not like it's just lying around the house in 2.2-pound cellophane-wrapped blocks. The Internal Revenue Service already has taken a big chunk off the top, and you gotta believe Ricky slipped a few G's to the Dalai Lama the last time he was hitchhiking through Tibet. He probably invested the rest, but the stock market hasn't exactly been sizzling, so - according to agent Leigh Steinberg - he suddenly has regained his enthusiasm for football.

The Ravens re-signed linebacker Bernardo Harris to a one-year, $680,000 contract yesterday. It was an offer that was on the table several weeks for Harris, who will have to play under a one-year contract for the second straight season. Harris, 31, started 10 times last year in place of Ray Lewis, who missed each of those games with a shoulder injury, and recorded 73 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions. With the recent signing of Cornell Brown, the Ravens have their top six linebackers under contract.
