Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is expected to announce his retirement on Monday, as ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on Sunday, so everyone has been saying goodbye to the future Hall of Fame quarterback in their own way.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams' farewell message was a little different from the rest. That's because rather than just salute the five-time NFL MVP, Williams decided to take some shots at him as well.

On Monday, Williams took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Manning. The Steelers running back started off by giving props to the 14-time Pro Bowler's career as a whole—and then immediately ripped the final season of the legend's career:

Update from Tuesday, March 8

Apparently not liking what his player was tweeting, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin sent this tweet to Williams:

Regardless of his stats, the 39-year-old Manning did enough to lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl title this season. That's all that matters in the end.
