Wow. I'm shocked. I have no faith in Worilds. He can't stay healthy as a backup so I can't even imagine how much time he will miss as a starter

Well, FUCK! So much for keeping one of the greatest Steelers of all time.......thanks for everything Jamie, and I accept this under extreme protest. There are many other players I consider to be replaceable, but Silverback is about as far down the list as you can get. Worilds could replace Woodley, but he couldn't hold Harrison's jock.

Why wouldn't he take new contract w/ the steelers? He's not going to get much more money in FA. It really makes no sense ..... why not finish out your career here? He wants to go learn a new system... then actually hope he can perform at a high level. He's old w/ injury problems... no one is going to give him a big pay day.

Does he live in Pittsburgh?

Very sorry to hear this.

Thanks Harrison for all the great plays! From the time you were on special teams wreaking havoc along with Keisel and hurdling Tomlinson when filling in as a back-up to when you became a starter making one of the greatest defensive plays in SB history. You will be missed.
