Ravens To Trade Chris Wormley To Steelers

We have yet another trade in the NFL. The latest swap is an intra-divisional one: The Steelers will send a 2021 fifth-round pick to the Ravens for defensive lineman Chris Wormley and a 2021 seventh-rounder, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com (on Twitter).

Wormley, a third-round pick in 2017, was tapped to be a younger replacement for Timmy Jernigan after he was shipped to the Eagles. He didn’t pan out exactly as hoped, but he did provide the Ravens with 39 appearances, including 15 starts, over the course of three seasons.

Along the way, Wormley managed 2.5 sacks from the interior. Last year, he saw 482 snaps with a roughly even split between passing and running plays. Pro Football Focus assigned him a 65.6 overall score, slotting him as the No. 63 ranked defensive tackle in the NFL. A repeat performance would make him a great value for Pittsburgh, as he still has one year to go on his original rookie deal.

    I know Wormley hasn’t done much, but weird to think you could find more value in a 5th round pick than what Wormley can provide.

      This is going to be a blastoff division this year.

      Ravens loaded up

      Steelers got Ben to go with that D

      Bengals could be instantly a contender after huge offseason and Joe Goat

      Browns will be hilarious as usual

      He’ll at least fill some D-line depth that we need.

      I don’t think we traded for an impact player, just more veteran depth

    Way to get value for player who probably riding the bench this year…

        Not really, he was gonna be sitting behind Campbell. And hasn’t really performed up to his draft slotting anyway. Essentially it’s a 7 for a 5 swap and a couple mil in cap relief.

          Who wouldn’t sit behind Campbell? They gave up a 5th for a 7th. I mean a really lame attack on a trade.

          Precisely. Writing clearly on the wall with the Campbell/Brockers acquisitions. Wormley did nothing to stand out…besides being coached by Harbaugh’s brother. Clear the roster spot , cap space, and acquire similar player for cheaper? No brainer.

            Anyone who knows anything about D-line knows these guys cycle out.

            Steelers didnt have depth to cycle, Ravens are obviously comfortable with their depth behind the old men.
