Pittsburgh Steelers fans want team to sign Ray Rice

We just days away from the start of the 2016 NFL play-offs and with that, comes another battle between two AFC North rivals.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night but ahead of the game, all the focus is on men who may not be playing.

No way of running?

The Steelers lost their starting runningback DeAngelo Williams during their week 17 win over the Cleveland Browns.


Will Ray Rice ever return to the NFL? Join the debate by becoming a GMS writer HERE:

Williams was already their back-up runningback after losing Le'Veon Bell earlier in the season and now the team's rushing attack looks very questionable.

While the Bengals have questions over quarterback Andy Dalton, it will be Williams who is the bigger miss to his team.

Steelers fans have already found who they would like their team to sign in order to replace Williams, and it is a very controversial character.

Multiple Steelers fansites have made urgent pleas for their team to extend the hand to former Baltimore Ravens runningback Ray Rice.

Rice has been out of the NFL for two years now following his controversial domestic violence case, but he has reportedly been desperate for a chance to earn his way back.

Delmarva Daily Times and Steelerswire have both stated that Rice could be the saviour for the Steelers who are entering the wildcard weekend with just Fitzgerald Toussaint at runningback.

The only question is, will the Steelers turn to the controversial runningback or will they stick with Toussaint?

Big match ups

The game at Paul Brown stadium on Saturday will showcase some incredible match ups and some of the biggest names in the NFL.

It will be Antonio Brown against A.J Green and hopefully Andy Dalton against Ben Roethlisberger in what is a meeting of two of the most explosive offenses in the NFL.
