Huizenga willing to sell 49 percent of Dolphins
Miami Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga remains in serious discussions with New York real estate developer Steve Ross, and Huizenga has told people he prefers to sell 49 percent of the team, three officials close to the situation said this week according to the Miami Herald.

If Williams is flagged again, he could receive a two-game suspension, including playoff games.
