Jason Worilds Gets Paid

The Steelers have used their Transition Tag on Jason Worilds. Basically, he's been tendered an offer and the Steelers have the right to match any contract offered by another team. In the meantime, Worilds will count for $9.754 million against the cap. That's a lot of money. The Steelers, despite having restructured Heath Miller's contract (to some degree), are still...

Transition Tag on Jason Worilds Will Have Ramificiations

I guess we now know what value the Pittsburgh Steelers place on Jason Worilds. The Steelers chose the little-used transition tag to keep Worilds on the roster at least for one more season. The move is a bit of a surprise since General Manager Kevin Colbert said recently that he “doubted” the team would use either the franchise or transition tag. Worilds will now make $9.7 million...
