LATROBE (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Steelers had a little fun at training camp late Thursday night when they filled up DeAngelo Williams’ room with hundreds of balloons.
Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward tweeted Sunday about a running joke the Steelers have at training camp — wishing running back DeAngelo Williams a “happy birthday” every day, even though his birthday is actually in April.
Some players took the joke to the next level Thursday night, filling Williams’ room with hundreds of balloons. Multiple players posted videos of the prank on social media, including Williams himself, who claimed there were 750 balloons filling his room.
“That’s to show you love,” linebacker James Harrison tells him.
“That’s not love, Deebo!” Williams responds.
Harrison then speaks into the camera, saying, “Send balloons! We can do this again, baby! Everybody send balloons to Saint Vincent College!” while Williams insists, “No, no, don’t send balloons.”
Williams credited Jordan Berry, Chris Boswell and Greg Warren as being the main influences behind the prank and tweeted “revenge is coming!!”
