The Steelers named outside linebacker Jason Worilds their transition player, the team announced. This is a very smart move, because the team had to keep the young linebacker on their roster. Worilds is coming off of an 8 sack season in Pittsburgh.
That guarantees Worilds, who wasn’t even a full-time starter last year, a one-year deal worth $9.754 million. The franchise tag would have cost $11.455 million.
