Steelers Camp Preview: Jarvis Jones, Jason Worilds look to step up at LB

Few team positions carry the same resonance as the Pittsburgh Steelers linebackers. You can distill the identity of the team and the city into that one position. They’re hardworking, physical and on defense. Find me three better linebackers in the history of the NFL than Jack Ham, Jack Lambert and Andy Russell. Mostly Lambert. That guy would have looked just as at home in a Carnegie...

NFL Draft Diamonds 2014 ALL-OVERESTIMATED Team (Defense and Special Teams)

Overestimated - When you estimate something, you make a calculation or a judgment of its value. So, when you overestimate, you assign too much value to the thing you are judging. So with that being said, this is a pretty obvious list.  Basically we took the most overrated, overhyped individuals in the NFL on Defense and placed them on a […] The post NFL Draft Diamonds 2014...

Steelers depth at Outside Linebacker leaves much to be desired

  Posted on: July 17, 2014 By: Kyle Curry   Six years ago the 2008 Steelers won their sixth Super Bowl over the Arizona Cardinals. In that game the Steelers outside linebackers played a major role. James Harrison’s 100 yard interception return for a touchdown is one of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history. Add to that LaMarr Woodley’s game sealing sack and forced fumble...

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Jason Worilds ranked top-20 in the NFL

When cover32 released its list of the top 10 outside linebackers in the NFL today, there were some people angry about their favorite team’s top pass rusher not making the list. It made for a bit of spirited debate in the “Comments” section below the article. And it also begged another question: How close was Mr. Irate Fan’s OLB to making the list? To provide an answer, the...

Report: Steelers LB Jason Worilds Never Received A Contract Offer

Just last week, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the Pittsburgh Steelers made a multi-year contract offer to outside linebacker Jason Worilds awhile ago and that it wasn’t accepted. According to a Wednesday report by Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh-Tribune Review, Worilds hasn’t been offered a contract since he signed his one-year transition […] Report...

Steelers LB Jason Worilds Gets Positional Group Work During Tuesday Practice

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Jason Worilds wasn’t able to participate in most of the OTA practices over the course of the last three weeks due to some sort of calf injury, but it looks as though he’s able to do more this week during the mandatory minicamp. In a short video shot Tuesday by Mark […] Steelers LB Jason Worilds Gets Positional Group Work During Tuesday...

Steelers Should Let Jason Worilds Walk in 2015

Ed Bouchette reported late last week that the Steelers have offered Jason Worilds a long-term deal which his camp turned down. The Steelers have very little depth at outside linebacker, and even less starting experience at the position outside of Worilds. I still think that despite that, the Steelers should let the 5th year linebacker walk in 2015. SteelDad has been wary of Worilds...

Let’s Hope Worilds’ Play Matches His Expectations in Pittsburgh

Since being drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft, Pittsburgh Steelers’ outside linebacker Jason Worilds has done very little in his four years to warrant the contract he and his agent apparently feel he deserves. During the winter months, the Steelers used the transition tag on Worilds and he signed the offer sheet the next day guaranteeing him he’d make $9.75 million...

Report: Jason Worilds turned down an offer from the Steelers

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, linebacker Jason Worilds turned down a contract offer from the Steelers a while ago. Turns out, the Steelers made Jason Worilds a multi-year contract offer awhile ago, sources say. His side did not accept it. I have no idea what that offer was, but I am told that offer stands and they will go no higher, that he either takes it or plays this...

Report: Steelers Have Multi-Year Offer On Table For LB Jason Worilds

I thought that I posted about this on Thursday, but apparently the server gremlin ate the story. By the sound of things, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Jason Worilds won’t be the next player to have his contract extended. In fact, it’s looking more and more like the former second-round draft pick will play out the 2014 […] Report: Steelers Have Multi-Year Offer On Table For...
