Jason Worilds Would Be Perfect Signing For Philadelphia Eagles
Teams are always looking for young, productive players that they can get for a reasonable price that look primed to break out in future seasons. For the Philadelphia Eagles, Jason Worilds is that guy.
Worilds is a pending free agent, is only 25 years old, and is fresh off of an eight sack season. Worilds is versatile due to the fact that he can rush and also drop into coverage, a prerequisite to be an effective outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, and especially to Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis‘.
The real question is will the Pittsburgh Steelers let him walk away? Worilds is slowly but surely becoming a real productive player in their defense and it isn’t out of the realm of possibility that they either franchise him or try to extend him long term.
If it falls through, the Eagles should be waiting at his door step. One thing the Eagles glaringly lack is a young, dynamic pass rusher along their front 7. Worilds certainly has the chance to become just that.
He may not be the splashiest name out there, but he fits in well with this young Eagles team and won’t necessarily cost an arm and a leg. It would be wise for Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and company to put the full court press on Worilds.
They can then go in the draft fully focused on rebuilding a porous secondary. If the Eagles come out of this year’s offseason with a young up and coming pass rusher and some high draft picks in the secondary, it should be considered a win and the start of building a solid defensive unit.
It all starts when free agency commences. Stay tuned.
