Are you starting to get the feeling that Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Jason Worilds might not be leaving town after all?
Now that Pernell McPhee, Jerry Hughes and Brandon Graham have all come to terms on new deals, Worilds might very well be running out of suitors.
Now that Graham has decided to re-sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, Worilds might be down to the Tennessee Titans and Steelers when it comes to teams interested in his services.
It should also be noted that Graham will reportedly sign a four-year deal with the Eagles that will pay him $6.5 million annually. That deal also apparently only includes $14 million in guarantees.
At one point it was believed that the Eagles had interests in signing Worilds. They’re obviously no longer a threat to sign him now that Graham has been re-signed.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert has said all offseason that they would like to keep Worilds if at all possible. They didn’t view him as being worthy of the tag, however, and that’s because they knew they would be grossly overpaying him.
The Steelers re-signed outside linebacker Arthur Moats on Monday as insurance in case Worilds winds up signing elsewhere.
At this point I guess we’ll have to wait and see just how interested the Titans are in the Steelers former second-round draft pick.
