After the transition tag sat dormant for so long, it has been used twice in the last hour.

The Steelers named outside linebacker Jason Worilds their transition player, the team announced.

That guarantees Worilds, who wasnít even a full-time starter last year, a one-year deal worth $9.754 million. The franchise tag would have cost $11.455 million.

Worilds had value after registering 8.0 sacks last year, but his side and the Steelers couldnít agree on what it was.

Now, he can go to the market, and the Steelers have the opportunity to match any deal he finds, though thereís no compensation if they donít.

The transition tag effectively dares the agent to find a contract. If the Steelers donít elect to match, theyíll just return their gaze to 2013 first-rounder Jarvis Jones, whose rookie year went in fits and starts.

I still don't think he is worth that but if that means Woodley is gone then I'm ok with that.

$8 million for Worilds VERSUS $11 million for Byrd

eight good games VERSUS four years of All Pro play

No way that they go after Byrd. Have you been watching the Steelers like forever on how they do things? THEY DO NOT GO AFTER HIGH PRICED FREE AGENTS.
