The Steelers have 21 unrestricted free agents hitting the market this offseason, writes Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. However, team president Art Rooney II only had one name on his mind when talking about the team’s priorities for the offseason: linebacker Jason Worilds.
“Jason Worilds is certainly somebody who came on and showed what he can do,” Rooney said. “Particularly over the second half of the season.”
Worilds is considered to be the second best outside linebacker available in free agency this offseason, behind only Brian Orakpo. The fourth-year linebacker finished last season with seven sacks in the last eight games.
