Steelers Worked Out Free Agent RB Karlos Williams

Adam Schefter reports that the Steelers recently worked out free agent RB Karlos Williams.

Earlier in the week, Brian Costello reported that five teams had already shown interest in Williams, while he met with the Jets worked for them recently.

Williams previously said that he would like to sign with the Jets, so this is clearly a situation to look out for.

The Bills made the decision cut Williams in part to his conditioning being a major issue. Reports mentioned that Williams showed up to offseason workouts between 20-25 pounds overweight.

It’s worth mentioning that Williams received a four-game suspension for violating the league’s Substances of Abuse Policy.

Williams, 23, was taken in the fifth round of last year’s NFL Draft by the Bills. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2,495,352 rookie contract and was set to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Williams appeared in 11 games for the Bills and ran for 517 yards on 93 carries (5.6 YPC) to go along with 11 receptions for 96 yards receiving and 9 total touchdowns.
