Williams, James reportedly want to play for Dolphins

MIAMI -- Ricky Williams and Edgerrin James in Miami Dolphin uniforms next season?

It's unlikely, but both players have told friends and associates they wouldn't mind being traded to the Dolphins, according to a report in Wednesday's Miami Herald.

In addition, a radio station in Austin, Texas, reported Tuesday that Williams will push for a trade to Miami.

Both players remain under contract -- Williams to New Orleans and James to Indianapolis -- making any deals subject to the NFL's salary cap. James played at the University of Miami and has remained close to the area. Williams played at Texas.

The Herald reported that Williams wanted to be dealt to Miami following last season's NFL draft, where the Saints picked running back Deuce McAllister in the first round. The Dolphins reportedly looked into the deal but were turned down.

James has been rehabilitating his knee in South Florida, according to the Herald, despite objections from the Colts. He has reportedly also told associates he doesn't like living in Indianapolis.
