DeAngelo Williams wants to get something straight. Yes, the longtime running back came to Pittsburgh in the offseason to give the Steelers a much-needed influx of depth behind All-Pro Le'Veon Bell.
Just don't peg Williams as merely a backup. While he understands his job is to fill in when Bell needs a break, Williams is confident there is plenty of life left in his 32-year-old legs. There better be with Bell facing a three-game suspension to start the 2015 following his arrest on DUI and marijuana charges last summer.
"I came from Carolina where I started for most of my career," Williams said. "So that's not a heavy workload at all."
