Two more familiar faces are returning to the Pittsburgh Steelers — one on each side of the ball.
Inside linebacker Vince Williams, who was released March 16 in a salary-cap move, agreed to rejoin the team, according to an ESPN.com report. Quarterback Joshua Dobbs, who became an unrestricted free agent in March, also is coming back on a one-year contract, agent Mike McCartney tweeted.
ESPN.com reported that Williams elected to remain in Pittsburgh rather that accept other offers.
When the Steelers released the 31-year-old Williams after eight seasons, they saved $4 million in salary but resulted in $3 million in dead money against the cap. It also paved the way for former undrafted free agent Robert Spillane to start alongside Devin Bush, who is returning from a torn ACL.
