Mike Tomlin confident DeAngelo Williams can fill in for Le'Veon Bell if needed

It's likely that Le'Veon Bell will miss the first two games of the 2015 season. While he won't have the NFL's total yardage leader at his disposal, Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that he is confident that newcomer DeAngelo Williams will be a more than capable substitute. Not many teams have two  Pro Bowl running backs on their resume. The Steelers are one of those teams, and Mike Tomlin is confident that newly signed backup DeAngelo Williams can get the job done if starter Le'Veon Bell misses the first two games of the season while serving his suspension. "We will wait to hear what happens from...

New Orleans should celebrate DeAngelo Williams' departure from NFC South

The former Carolina running back tormented his NFC South foe on many occasions during his nine seasons with the Panthers. Bo Jackson was unstoppable in the original Tecmo Bowl. While he wasn't Bo, DeAngelo Williams did his best impression of the video game version of Jackson when he faced the New Orleans Saints. In 14 career games against the Saints, Williams rushed for 1,122 yards and seven touchdowns on 181 carries, giving him an average of nearly 6.2 yards per carry. Four of Williams' 18 career 100-yard games came against New Orleans, including his career-high 210 yard effort on 21...

Steelers OC Todd Haley requests patience with Dri Archer

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected RB/WR Dri Archer in the 3rd round of the 2014 draft, and Archer struggled throughout the season. With a year under his belt, offensive coordinator Todd Haley declares patience is needed as Archer develops. As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for the upcoming 2015 season, they see a running back depth chart which seems solidified. Le'Veon Bell as one of the premier backs in the league, DeAngelo Williams as the new guy on the block who will fill in for Bell during his suspension and as needed, Josh Harris who saw carries in the Wild Card game of the AFC...

Patience could pay off for Steelers in cornerback search

I’m trying to get on board with this free-agent cornerback thing. I really am. But Patrick Robinson and Sterling Moore just don’t move the needle for me. Don’t get me wrong, the stakes of my black-and-gold tent are firmly planted in the dirt at Shutdown Corner Campground, but there was no way the likes of Darrelle Revis or Brandon Browner were going to be in play for the fiscally responsible Steelers. While the signing of running back DeAngelo Williams could end up being the steal of a relatively sedate free-agent period, the financial splash play for the Steelers front office […] The...

Pittsburgh Steelers odds to win Super Bowl 50 improve after free agency

An updated look at the Pittsburgh Steelers RB depth chart

The Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the best running backs in the league in Le'Veon Bell, and added veteran RB DeAngelo Williams to the mix. An updated look at the Steelers RB depth chart. The Pittsburgh Steelers wanted to get a veteran running back via free agency, and they got their man in former Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams. The addition of Williams certainly rounds out the Steelers' depth chart at the running back position, but how should the fan base feel about the depth at such a crucial position within Todd Haley's dynamic offense? There isn't much which needs to...

DeAngelo Williams looking to do what LeGarrette Blount couldn't for the Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers are dipping their toes into the veteran free agent running back waters for the second year in a row, and DeAngelo Williams looks to do what LeGarrette Blount couldn't in 2014. The Pittsburgh Steelers finally woke up from their free agency slumber to make a couple key moves at the end of the first week of the free agent frenzy. However, the news across Steelers Nation has almost solely been geared around Ben Roethlisberger's extension, salary cap impact and overall value of his new deal. What is being overlooked by many is the signing of veteran running back DeAngelo...

The Panthers all time leading rusher will wear yellow and black next season. Steelers sign RB DeAngelo Williams - Behind the Steel CurtainThere was a time in Pittsburgh where some thought the Steelers may have been looking to select Williams in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He was an All-America selection at Memphis, and with what was thought to be an excellent running backs class, the competition was such Williams fell to 27 overall. The Steelers had traded up from the 32nd pick to 25 with the Giants to select Ohio State's Santonio Holmes. I'm one of those who believe Williams...

2015 NFL Free Agency: RB DeAngelo Williams visits Steelers

The expectations for the Steelers' back-up running back will be much more clear when he's signed than they were in 2014. If Williams can accept that as his role, he's their guy. The same stage was set in 2014. The Steelers needed a complimentary back to provide insurance on young running back Le'Veon Bell, and it seemed, in March, the best option would be a dual-headed approach of additions in the draft and free agency to help accomplish that goal. The Steelers elected to sign veteran RB LeGarrette Blount in free agency but didn't address the running back position in the draft (they did...

Free Agent RB DeAngelo Williams ‘Hopeful’ to Join Steelers Following Visit

Think the visit today that the Steelers have set up with free agent running back DeAngelo Williams is nothing but a smoke screen for him to get a better offer elsewhere? Think again.

The 31-year-old was released by the Panthers in a cost cutting move that saved the team about $2 million. While expected to be the backup for […] The post Free Agent RB DeAngelo...

Williams, 32 years old, is the all-time leading rusher for the Carolina Panthers with 6,846 yards, but was cut by the organization after their season ended in the playoffs.  In his prime he was a fast running back that once totaled over 1500 yards in...
