Steelers | Jason Worilds willing to stay

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 15:50:17 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent LB Jason Worilds is open to re-signing with the team before he becomes an unrestricted free agent, but he has to be guaranteed a starting job in order to do so. He led the team with eight sacks last year and was second with 29 quarterback pressures and had 63 total tackles. The Steelers would likely have to choose between Worilds and LB LaMarr Woodley. Woodley is scheduled to make $8 million next year with a salary cap hit of $13.59 million. Pittsburgh is currently roughly $10 million over the cap.

Steelers | Jarvis Jones has chance to start

Sun, 30 Jun 2013 08:08:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Jarvis Jones has a decent chance to beat LB Jason Worilds for one of the starting outside linebacker jobs because he will have less of a learning curve. Jones played linebacker in college unlike most of the outside linebackers the team has added in the past.

Steelers | Larry Foote doesn't think Jarvis Jones will start

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 09:58:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Larry Foote thinks OLB Jason Worilds, not rookie Jarvis Jones, will start in place of James Harrison, who left via free agency. "It's going to be difficult [for Jones to start immediately]," Foote said. "There is so much technique, [knowing] where to line up, inside or outside." Foote said, however, that at least Jones played in a 3-4 as a Georgia Bulldog.

Fantasy Tip: Jones could make fantasy noise in the second half of sack-friendly IDP formats, though, so don't write him off as a late-rounds gamble.

Steelers | Not completely sold on Jason Worilds as starter

Sat, 09 Mar 2013 11:04:05 -0800

Steelers | LaMarr Woodley to be part of a rotation

Sat, 06 Oct 2012 07:34:12 -0700

The Pittsburgh Steelers plan to use LB LaMarr Woodley in a rotation with LB Jason Worilds early in Week 5 in order to keep Woodley fresh for the fourth quarter, particularly against a mobile quarterback like Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick. The Steelers, however, will not have Woodley and LB James Harrison (knee) - who will also be used in a rotation - out of the game at the same time. The coaching staff wants to make sure their best players are fresh when the game might be on the line after the defense blew leads of 24-14 and 31-21 in the fourth quarter of their Week 3 loss to the Oakland Raiders.
