DeAngelo Williams has been in the news for his social media comments about Peyton Manning and his final year before retirement. Mike Tomlin used his own social media platform to send the RB a message.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams made news when he tweeted some negative thoughts about Peyton Manning's last season before he officially retired. Williams' Twitter comments made major media circuits, and they have even caught the attention of one very important follower of Williams on Twitter -- Mike Tomlin.

The Steelers head coach has been busy with free agency ready to pick up, the NFL Scouting Combine, Pro Days and eventually pre-draft visits, but he took time out of his busy schedule to send this tweet to Williams:

It had been 4 months since Tomlin's last activity on his official Twitter account, but regardless of how busy he was he found the time to send this special message to the Steeler who is causing waves due to social media interactions.

This isn't the first time the team, or Tomlin, has had to step in and help corral a player who might be going over the top on social media. The most recent time was in 2014 when Mike Mitchell was told to stop tweeting after he suggested a fan end his life for negative comments about his, and the Steelers', play.

Will Williams heed his coach's advice? Only time will tell, but I guarantee he got the message.
