WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

DeAngelo Williams | Free Agent RB

Free agent running back DeAngelo Williams says he's "definitely" playing football this season.

Williams was on Adam Schefter's podcast, "Know Them From Adam", and said this. The former Panther and Steeler wrestled for Impact Wrestling, where he face planted when trying to do a move off the top rope (he told Schefter he is now retired from wrestling). Now, Williams says he's waiting on a phone call from a team, and staying in shape while he waits. The veteran running back is 34-years-old and battled injuries last season, but he's just a year removed from a season of 1,200 total yards and 11 touchdowns while averaging 4.5 yards per carry. He'll likely get an opportunity with a team at some point during training camp.

DeAngelo Williams gets 21 touches in AFC Championship.

With Le'Veon Bell (groin) out for most of the game, Williams got all the work in the Steelers backfield after Bell left. Williams had 14 carries for 34 yards and a touchdown, with seven receptions for 51 yards. If Williams is back with the Steelers in 2017, he will be among the best handcuffs out there. He does not have any standalone value, however, as Bell handles nearly all the work for the Steelers.

DeAngelo Williams sees a heavy workload with Le'Veon Bell resting.

Williams rushed 23 times for 67 yards and one touchdown, adding three catches for 27 yards and another score. The veteran back was given a surprising amount of work in the second game back from a knee injury, but Pittsburgh probably wanted him to knock the rust off for the playoffs. DeAngelo finishes the regular season with 98 carries for 343 yards (3.5 YPC) and four touchdowns. He'll probably see a maximum of a handful of touches behind Bell next week against the Dolphins.
