Steelers use transition tag on Jason Worilds

Posted · Add Comment

The Pittsburgh Steelers have designed outside linebacker Jason Worilds as their transition player.

Worilds gets a one-year, $9.754 million tender, lower than the $11.455 million franchise tender for outside linebackers.

Worilds emerged as a valuable pass rusher last season, registering eight sacks.

The Steelers have the right to match any offer sheet from another team.
