(WMC) - Former Memphis Tiger Deangelo Williams is finding his way in his new home with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Williams signed a 2-year deal with Pittsburgh as a free agent in March.

The Steelers are hoping they got the guy who rushed for just over 1500 yards for the Panthers in 2008, not the running back who's had trouble staying healthy.

Williams missed 10 games in 2010 and 2014, but is getting new life in the Steel City as Le'veon Bell's backup in the backfield.

"I approach it like any other game," said Williams, "Going in to be productive every time I touch the ball whenever I'm in the game, whether I'm a starter or backup. Because in this league, the way the playing time set up, sometimes the starter gets more plays, sometimes the second guy gets more plays than the starter. There's no big deal for me, whatever they ask me to do here I'm willing to do it. Whether it be a start, a backup, whatever they ask me to do, I'm gonna do it with everything I got."

Williams was released by Carolina after 9 seasons and is the Panthers All-Time leading rusher.
