Audio: Talking about Mario Williams with Shredd & Ragan

By Tim Graham

At the start, Mario Williams' engagement-ring lawsuit was an interesting sidebar the provided a glimpse into the personal life of a sports celebrity.

As someone like Alex Rodriguez or Kobe Bryant can attest, the public devours tales from behind a superstar's curtain. Last week, Sports Illustrated put Williams in their financial company in the magazine's annual Fortunate 50 list.

But the plot abruptly shifted from trivial titillation to serious concern upon the release of texts from Williams to his ex-fiancee. In the texts, Williams allegedly referenced suicidal thoughts and narcotics abuse (taking hydrocodone before a game without anyone's knowledge).

This morning, Shredd and Ragan welcomed me to 103.3 The Edge, where we talked about the situation in depth.
