PITTSBURGH — The Steelers have signed their second-round draft pick from the 2010 NFL Draft, linebacker Jason Worilds. Financial terms of the four-year deal were not disclosed.
Worilds (6-2, 262) was the Steelers' second pick (52nd overall) in this year's draft after playing collegiately at Virginia Tech. Worilds, who entered the NFL Draft following his junior season with the Hokies, started 25 games and finished with 15.5 career sacks. He was an All-ACC second-team honoree last year and posted a school-record (tied) 38 quarterback pressures in 2009.
The Steelers also announced that they have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with 13-year veteran offensive tackle Flozell Adams. Adams (6-7, 338) spent the first 12 seasons of his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys, who selected him in the second round (38th overall) of the 1998 NFL Draft. Adams is a five-time Pro Bowl player who has started 178 of 182 games played in the regular season.
The Steelers made room on their training camp roster by releasing linebackers Lindsey Witten and Johnny Williams, and long snapper Matt Stewart.
The Steelers now have 79 players signed to their training camp roster. Nine of the Steelers' 10 draft picks from this year's NFL Draft have signed contracts. First-round offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey is the only Steelers' draft pick who has yet to sign a contract.
