Karlos Williams has not had the offseason he was imagining for himself when he got cut by the Buffalo Bills earlier this month. He has received some interest from the New York Jets after getting cut and it seems there's at least one more team interested in his services.
He is currently being targeted by the Pittsburgh Steelers, a source told Sal Capaccio of WGR 550. The Bills cut Williams because of weight issues and a four-game suspension he is going to serve to start the season. The Steelers could have used him to help DeAngelo Williams who will start in place of the suspended Le'Veon Bell.
The fact that Williams has to serve his own suspension that lasts longer than Bell's three-game suspension makes this interest from the Steelers pretty odd. However, Karlos' brother Vince (linebacker) plays for the team so it could be a nice reunion for the brothers. The former fifth-round pick from 2015 had 517 yards on 93 carries and seven touchdowns in his rookie season.
