Jason Worilds

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Monday that the team used their transition tag on linebacker Jason Worilds.

On Tuesday, Worilds signed his transition tag offer of $9.754 million, according to several media reports.

Signing the tag means Worilds can’t consider offers from other teams.

Worilds and the Steelers will now work on a long-term deal that is cap-friendly since the team is around $15 million over the $134.55 million salary cap.

Worilds, 25, was originally drafted by the Steelers in the second round (52nd overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech. Last season Worilds set career highs in starts (11), tackles (54), sacks (8) and forced fumbles (2).
