Williams, an 11-year NFL veteran and current free agent, is taking his talents to the world of professional wrestling next month. Williams, who spent the last two seasons with the Steelers after a long run with the Panthers, confirmed to NFL.com's Michael Fabiano -- our in-house wrasslin' insider -- that he will be in the ring at Impact Wrestling's Slammiversary XV pay-per-view on July 2 in Orlando.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported Williams will tag team with Quinn "Moose" Ojinnaka, a former NFL offensive lineman. I really like DeAngelo's chances here.
So is this a career change for Williams? Not quite. Williams told Fabiano the match should be considered a one-off (for now, anyway) and he is open to extending his NFL career -- as long as he gets an offer from "a Super Bowl contender."
Meanwhile, I'm just thrilled to know that "Slammiversary" is a thing that exists in this world. I'm going to use it repeatedly in casual conversation with my wife until she threatens to leave me. "Honey, real quick, when's our slammiversary again?"
