The Steelers just let Tyson Alualu walk to the Jaguars in free agency, but they aren’t letting all their big guys up front head out the door. Pittsburgh is re-signing defensive tackle/end Chris Wormley to a two-year deal, a source told Mark Kaboly of The Athletic (Twitter link).
Jordan Strack of WTOL 11 was first to tweet the news. Pittsburgh sent a 2021 fifth-round pick to the Ravens in a rare inter-division trade to acquire Wormley almost exactly a year ago. Baltimore had originally drafted him 74th overall back in 2017. Wormley has played both in the middle and on the end, and stands at 6’5 and 300 pounds.
He started 13 games for Baltimore between 2018-19, then moved into a rotational role in Pittsburgh last year. He missed three games due to injury, and played just under 20 percent of the defensive snaps when he was active. He finished with three QB hits and a sack in his relatively limited action.
