Maybe that is a rhetorical question there in the headline, but I think it’s one worth asking isn’t it? Will Jason Worilds stay in Pittsburgh?
For many of you, it’s an easy answer but I suspect more and more that it may not be that simple when you consider a number of factors.
I’m not at all suggesting that Worilds doesn’t deserve a new contract because he was certainly this team’s best outside linebacker in 2013.
He started 11 games and collected a team high eight sacks and forced two fumbles.
I have concerns about him though and I don’t think I’m alone.
Prior to this year, Worilds had been troubled by injuries in his first three seasons. When he did play, he wasn’t anything special as he collected just five sacks in his first two years before equaling that total last season.
This past season was obviously his best one but he still missed the final game with an injury. That begs the question of how much can you afford to a pay a guy who has a history of injuries? Perhaps I’m gun-sh...
