Latest NewsSteelers | DeAngelo Williams could still re-join PIT (Thu Mar 23, 07:43 PM) - Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Steelers) could still re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers despite the team recently adding RB Knile Davis, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com. Our View: Williams has managed to dodge Father Time the last few seasons and proven to be a very nice backup to LeVeon Bell. But Bell won't start the season suspended this year and so it's unlikely that Williams or Davis will have much value this year as more than a handcuff.
