Ricky Williams – a Vegan NFL Star

Add Errick Lynne “Ricky” Williams, Jr., running back for the Baltimore Ravens, to the growing veg-line-up in the NFL. Ricky, initially motivated out of a deepening spirituality, combined with a need to maintain his athletic trim and competitive edge, and later by compassion, has become a confirmed and somewhat outspoken vegan. When asked if he would even consider eating chicken, he responded. “I wouldn’t eat a chicken if it dropped dead in front of me holding up a sign that said, ‘Eat Me.’”
