June 9 (UPI) -- Free agent running back DeAngelo Williams is expected to compete in July for Impact Wrestling.
The Pittsburgh Steelers cut Le'Veon Bell's former backup in March. Williams, 34, was the No. 27 pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. He played his first nine seasons for the Carolina Panthers, leading the NFL with 18 rushing scores in 2008. Williams made his only Pro Bowl in 2009. In 2015, he led the league with 11 rushing scores while taking over for Bell in the Steelers' backfield.
