While free-agent running back DeAngelo Williams searches for a new team, he's reportedly going to dabble in another contact sport: pro wrestling.

On Monday, the former Pittsburgh Steelers rusher teased a return to Impact Wrestling, formerly known as TNA.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t CBSSports.com's Brian Campbell), Williams is going to compete in a tag team match at the Slammiversary XV pay-per-view event on July 2.

Meltzer reported the 34-year-old will wrestle alongside Moose, a former NFL offensive lineman who was rescued by Williams and NFL tight end Gary Barnidge in a previous storyline.
