Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams wanted Mike Tomlin to help him with his bags on move-in day

New, comments

DeAngelo Williams is new to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but not to the NFL. The 10-year veteran was unpacking his vehicle on move-in day Saturday, and was looking from help from an unlikely source.

What happens when a 10-year veteran like DeAngelo Williams pulls up to the curb at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA only to find no one is waiting for him to help him with his bags? He asks why head coach Mike Tomlin isn't out there helping him.

Thanks to Neal Coolong of DKonPittsburghSports.com, BTSC was able to obtain video of Williams searching for Tomlin, although he was nowhere to be found.

At the :30 mark in the video, you see Williams pulling several large items out of his large pick-up truck wondering if they have any interns to help him carry his bags.

"Hey they don't have interns or nothing to help you with your stuff around here? Man, coach Tomlin just up there sitting, he ain't gonna help no body? We'll see what coach Tomlin doin', see if he can come help. Oh, he just got that contract..."

The contract Williams is referring to is clearly the contract extension Tomlin received before camp to keep him in Pittsburgh through 2018, and rumored to be worth nearly $7 Million dollars a year.

Williams seems comfortable in his new settings in Western Pennsylvania, but here is hoping he finds himself equally as comfortable on the football fields the next few weeks as he gets a trial-by-fire in Todd Haley's offense which was one of the best in 2014. Williams won't have to worry about coach Tomlin in that capacity, he will certainly be there to help him along the way...just don't expect him to help with luggage.
