The Steelers announced via their website that sixth-round pick Vince Williams has agreed to a contract with the team.
A physical player at inside linebacker, Williams is viewed as a possible long-term solution to Larry Foote.
Williams will try to stick with the team earning a role on special teams.

‘Williams wasn’t invited to the combine despite starting his last two years at Florida State, where he had 13.5 tackles for loss and three sacks. Williams is one of the new faces making for a different looking Steelers team at OTAs this month. His work at those sessions will help determine how much we see of that face.’
