MIAMI (Sports Network) - Former Dolphins running back Ricky Williams (news) was ordered by an arbitrator Friday to pay a huge sum of money to Miami, which filed a grievance against the star after he retired just prior to training camp this season.

According to the Miami Herald, Williams has been told to give back more than $8.6 million in incentives and signing bonus for violating the terms of his contract.

Arbitrator Richard Bloch informed all of the involved parties in a brief notification Friday and said he would issue a more detailed opinion at a later time.

The paper said Bloch granted the Dolphins the right to take back $8,616,353 from Williams after the former Heisman Trophy winner announced in July that he was retiring. Williams has since formally filed his retirement papers with the NFL.

Williams would have been entering his sixth season in the league. In two campaigns with Miami, the Texas product rushed for a total of 3,225 yards and 25 touchdowns. He also had two receiving TDs.

For his career, Williams ran for a total of 6,354 yards and 41 touchdowns. He also had 1,806 receiving yards and four scores. His best season came in his first year with the Dolphins in 2002, when he ran for 1,853 yards and 16 touchdowns in 16 games.

He spent the first three years of his career with the New Orleans Saints (news), where he was the first overall pick of the club. Then coach Mike Ditka traded all of his picks in the draft to move up to fifth and select Williams, who never lived up to his potential for the Saints.

Williams ran for a total of 3,129 yards and 16 TDs with the Saints, who then traded him to the Dolphins before the 2002 campaign.
