Jason Worilds: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Worilds left Thursday's preseason game with a right knee injury and will not return, ESPN's Scott Brown reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Coming off a breakout, eight-sack season in 2013, Worilds is locked in as the starting right outside linebacker as he heads into a contract year. The Steelers don't have particularly good depth at the position, with Worilds backed up by Arthur Moats, Chris Carter and Vic So'oto.
Worilds signed the transition tag worth $9.75 million with the Steelers on Tuesday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Worilds has increased his sack count in each of his four seasons, culminating in eight across 15 games last year. He supplemented his line with 63 tackles (43 solo), two forced fumbles, and two passes defended. The aforementioned one-year deal guarantees that no other organization can extend an offer sheet his way, while displaying that he's a key cog in Pittsburgh's defense.
The Steelers have placed their transition tag on Worilds, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

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.
Worilds (abdomen) was inactive for the Steelers’ game against Cleveland Sunday.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

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.

2012

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.

2010

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.
