The Longhorn Network had jokes on Ricky Williams’s return to Austin this Saturday. The former running back attended Texas’s home game against Kansas State as he was honored on the Heisman’s 25th anniversary.

Williams won a Heisman while with the Longhorns and went on to be one of the best backs in the pros after he was drafted at No. 5 overall. Still, he’s probably best known for having a love for cannabis.

The pyrotechnics were in full effect on the day, with fireworks popping off and smoke in the air. The Longhorn Network just had to…

The NFL takes a lenient stance on weed now, but the policies were strict back in Ricky’s time and he missed two full seasons due to substance abuse suspensions alone as he was hit with five of them during his 11-year career.

The former star still loves him some marijuana and has become an advocate for legalization in the wake of his retirement. He also owns a cannabis brand called “Highsman.”

We’re pretty sure you get it.
