With Williams Now Back, OLB Likely Now Bigger Draft Need For Steelers Than ILB

We received a bit of a surprise on Wednesday when it was reported that the Pittsburgh Steelers are bringing back inside linebacker Vince Williams just weeks after cutting him. And while we do not yet know the specifics of the deal that Williams will or has already signed, it’s a good bet that it is just one year and likely for just $1.075 million or slightly more. Regardless, of what that contract says, Williams’ return for the 2021 season, assuming he makes the 53-man roster, is a big boost for the Steelers defense and especially when it comes to the inside linebacker depth chart.
