For those of us that remember Tim, he was a prety darn good talent that was just worthless. The guy had good rookie season, then dropped off the world. What a dissapointment

Yeah, I remember his agent tried to negotiate some HUGE contract and the Steelers counter offered $1.

They thought they should only match it with an absurd counter offer, because the demand was equally absurd.

Talent without effort is a shame to watch.

When I think of Steelers who had talent, but a 10 cent head, I think of Tim Worley, Troy Edwards, and Delton Hall.

Worley, more than all of them, could have been really good in the Steelers system...especially under Cowher. Imagine Barry Foster and Worley as a 1-2 punch under Cowher.

Atleast he scored the 1st touchdown in the 1989 Wild Card Game that sent the Oilers packing for the season. That was about the extent of his contributions.

What a complete waste of talent.

Tim Worley and Huey Richardson as #1 picks- whomever was running the drafts in Chuck Noll's last years was sniffing glue (although at least they never traded up to draft a punter)

John Rienstra
Aaron Jones
Walter Abercrombie
Mark Malone
Keith Gary
Daryl Sims
Tom Ricketts
Tim Worley
Huey Richardson

PATHETIC

....all 1st Round busts picked during Noll's last 10 years. The only #'s they hit on were Woodson, Lipps, and Eric Green. Woodson was a no-brainer pick that fell to them. Rivera gets an INC because of his injury.

I don't know how the Steelers scouting staff kept their jobs during this time span. It looks like they were not only sniffing glue, but sleeping at the wheel.
