Jason Worilds Signs With Steelers, Woodley Likely Done In Pittsburgh

DAVID TODD

In a bit of surprise yesterday, the Steelers pulled out the seldom-used Transition Tag for the first time since 2008 and slapped it on outside linebacker Jason Worilds. While the tag didn't prevent Worilds from testing free agency, it bought the Steelers some time and gave them the right to match any deal that Worilds might sign with another team.

Surprise number two happened today as Worilds signed the one-year, $9.754 million Transition offer. This means he cannot test free agency and will be a Steeler in 2014.

The two sides will continue to work on a longer-term deal that will lower the first year cap hit. I would expect them to be working towards something like a 4-year, $35-40 million deal that would provide Worilds with $15-18 million in guaranteed money.

This move also virtually guarantees the Steelers will release LB LaMarr Woodley. The Steelers will save the $25.5 million in cash owed to Woodley on the remaining three years of his deal through 2016. However, the team will not save any cap money by releasing Woodley. There will be a $14.1 dead money hit vs. a $13.59 million hit if he had stayed on the roster this year. The Steelers can push some of that dead money hit into 2015 if they designate his release after June 1. So there may be some short-term cap relief.

This was the big first step in the Steelers offseason plans. Next up, Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor. I expect an extension (and restructure) to be announced with Polamalu any day. Taylor will either have to take a big paycut from $7 million or likely be released.

A longterm deal will come out of this that is fair and worth it. Worlids is young and is finally hitting his stride in a versatile defense. We could not afford to lose Worlids on a defense with many holes to plug. We need that pressure on the outside and Worlids was our stud. Judging by his performance, Worlids has just begun. I like it.

Linebacker Jason Worilds accepts one-year contract with Steelers

March 4, 2014
By Ed Bouchette / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Linebacker Jason Worilds today accepted his one-year transition contract tender with the Steelers, locking him into them for at least the 2014 season.

A source confirmed to the Post-Gazette what Jason LaCanfora of CBS first reported today that Worilds accepted the $9,754,000 one-year contract and thus no longer eligible to sign elsewhere in free agency.

The Steelers next move with Worilds would be to try to sign him to a long-term contract that not only would assure them of his services for a number of years but also would likely reduce his salary cap hit from his new one-year deal for 2014.

What do you think Worilds' contract would have been on the open market?

Ed Bouchette:
Less than what the Steelers offered him or else he would have tested the waters.

I hope they move up extending Ben now, instead of waiting til the summer like they've said publicly. Use the Woodley money on other extensions instead of Bens money.

Default Re: Jason Worilds Signs Transition Contract For 2014

On NFL Live, John Clayton says the Steelers are looking to sign Worilds to a long-term contract in the $6-7 million dollar range. If this is true, this is the range some of us talked about with Worilds. If they can get something done in that range, it would be a great signing. So many here are looking at the Transition Tag and assuming Worilds will make at least $9.75 a year. If he signs a long-term deal, it would most likely be considerably less per year, and make this move much more agreeable and cap friendly.

I think this whole situation is looking much better with Worilds signing his Transition Contract, and both sides actively trying to come to an agreement on a long-term deal.
