My point being: you can really only count on either of them for about 8 games per season.

So, if the Steelers are going to have to rely on "another" OLB for half of the season anyway, why not just go with "another" OLB for the entire season. It's much more cost effective than paying for Worilds or Woodley to stand on the sidelines.
Hmm. I think were on The same page, but we would just go about it slightly different.

Worilds gains interest from "6-8" teams, could command high salary number

By Bryan DeArdo on Feb 28 2014



Some predicting the fifth year linebacker will be "playing with a new team" in 2014

The Steelers may have to pay a king's ransom to keep Jason Worilds.

The fifth-year linebacker, still just 25-years-old, has been reported to be in high demand among NFL teams according to ESPN's Adam Caplan on NFL Insiders.

Caplan went on to say that as many as "6-8 teams" are currently interested in Worilds, who could command "around $6-7 million a year."

Where does this leave the Steelers?

SI.com's Josh Sanchez stated that the Steelers "would likely prefer if he returned to the team but it is unlikely that they will be able to afford him with the amount of money that he is going to command. Expect Worilds to be playing with a new team in 2014."

Rotoworld.com's Evan Silva has Worilds ranked as the second best free agent on the market behind fellow outside linebacker Brian Orakpo.

Worilds' sack numbers have risen in each of his four seasons in the NFL. He was one of the team's main cogs during the Steelers' second half emergence last year. He had six of his eight sacks in the final eight games of the season as Pittsburgh went 6-2 during that span. One of his best games last season came in a 10 tackle, two-sack effort against the Ravens in Week 13.

The 6'2, 262-pound Worlids has 18 career sacks after being drafted in the second round out of Virginia Tech in 2010. He recorded his first NFL sack in Week Two of his rookie season in the team's 38-13 win at Tampa Bay. He recorded his first two-sack game in Week 14 of the 2011 season against Cleveland. His next multi-sack effort came in week 12 of the 2012 season at Cleveland.

What transpires with Worilds will most likely have an impact on how the Steelers handle the LaMarr Woodley situation. After tallying 44 sacks from 2008-11, Woodley recorded five sacks in 2012 and four in 13 games last season while battling injuries. The 29-year-old Woodley forced a fumble on the Cardinals final play of Super Bowl XLIII.

Got to let Worilds walk. He's going to demand to much. Woodley is already payed. Both are injured alot. Stick with Woodley and hope he's completely healthy for the year. When he's healthy and in shape he's more a beast than Worilds could ever dream of being.

Draft a outside linebacker high, maybe another for depth and hope JJ starts producing in his second year.

the jury is still out on Worilds to say what he can and cannot be

Gotta disagree - you pay the guy that has contributed in limited playing time versus the guy that can't stay on the field

There's no jury on Worilds. He's also often injured, has the ability to play on one side of the defense and didn't produce until the final year of his contract. Surprise. I believe there was a report that Worilds himself quoted that he never was favored by the coaching staff to play. The reason was because he couldn't stay healthy but the biggest reason was because Harrison and Woodley were beasts.

The organization would be making a mistake to pay Worilds 10 to 11 million a year. Draft.

Worilds isn't going to get 10-11 mil.

If we offer him almost 7-8m I believe he'll accept it. Worilds still has a lot of potential and played great this year while getting doubled teamed. Just think what he can do when Jarvis starts getting attention.

We gotta sign the guys we develop not just them go sign else where when its contract time. That's an easy way to become mediocre. W

e have too many needs to worry about drafting a OLB in the first 3 rounds

Paul Kruger got 4 years $50M. Worilds would probably shoot for that offer and he would get it. I just hope that it's not the Steelers who give him that offer.
