Jason Worilds: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The transition tag for linebackers is worth $9.754 million. Meanwhile, the move gives the Steelers the right of first refusal to match any offer that Worilds may receive from another team. In 15 games (including 11 starts) for the Steelers this past season, he recorded 63 tackles and eight sacks.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Worilds finally will have an opportunity to start for Pittsburgh in 2013. He has shown solid pass rushing skills, increasing his sack total each of his three years in the league.
Worilds showed promise in 2011 spot duty, recording 38 tackles and three sacks across 12 games with seven starts. With all the health concerns to the Pittsburgh linebacker corps, he figures to find his way into the rotation with James Harrison, LaMarr Woodley and Chris Carter.
Selected in the second round of the 2010 draft, Worilds was a defensive end in college. He will be converted to linebacker with the Steelers. Pittsburgh has plenty of experience and talent at this position, so Worilds has time to develop and learn the game at the team's pace.
