(New Orleans-AP) -- The New Orleans Saints are talking seriously to both the Cleveland Browns and the Miami Dolphins about a trade for Ricky Williams.
Coach Jim Haslett confirmed yesterday that Miami made an offer and that Cleveland also has shown interest. He gives no details but makes clear the Saints could keep Williams if the talks fall through.
The Saints, who used their number one draft pick last season on running back Deuce McAllister, have been trying to trade Williams for months.
Former New Orleans coach Mike Ditka gave up all of the Saints' draft picks in 1999 to get the Heisman Trophy-winner from Texas.
Haslett has said Williams cost the team too much, since Ditka's deal left the team with no number one or number three pick when Haslett took over in 2000.
