Running back DeAngelo Williams still wants to play football.

“I’m definitely playing football,” Williams said. “I guess you could say I’m waiting on the phone call. I guess you could say that. I mean, not guess. You can say that. I’m waiting on the phone call with a G.M. or head coach or whoever decides they need my services. I’ll be ready. You can rest assured of that. I work out every day. I keep in shape because I know once that phone call comes — when it comes, not if — I’ll be ready to step up and deliver.”

Fantasy Impact:

Williams ran for 343 yards and four touchdowns for the Steelers last year. He also missed time with a knee injury and as the story said, it may take an injury to another player for that phone call to come.
