The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed RB Karlos Williams to their practice squad.

There were reports last week that the former Bills fifth-round pick was going to be re-signed by Buffalo. The Steelers likely see a benefit in having Williams’ older brother, LB Vince Williams on their roster to serve as a positive influence for a player who battled off the field issues and weight problems.

RB Williams eager to face older NFL brother

Posted by Chris Brown on May 10, 2015 – 10:33 am

Right now Bills rookie RB Karlos Williams is focused on Buffalo’s offensive and special teams playbook with rookie minicamp wrapping up today. In his down time however, it’s hard for him not to think about squaring off against his older brother who also plays in the NFL.

Williams older brother Vince Williams is a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Williams has leaned on his older brother for advice on navigating a rookie season in the NFL.

“He gave me a lot of good advice,” said Williams. “He’s my big brother and is going to help me out as much as he can. But then again we play them in Week 3 of the preseason and he might not want to give me too much help.”

Williams already has Buffalo’s third preseason game against Pittsburgh (Aug. 29th) marked on his calendar, knowing with him as a running back and his brother Vince a linebacker that there’s a good chance the two will meet in the hole on a running play.

“It’s going to be fun,” he said. “I look forward that moment. Me and my brother have always had that sibling rivalry, but when it comes down to it that’s my brother. I love him to death and I can’t wait to see him across the field.”
