The Steelers, racing the clock to keep a five-year streak of no rookie holdouts intact, will have at least one of their two top draft picks join them when they report to training camp Friday.
Linebacker Jason Worilds, their second-round draft choice, came to a contract agreement tonight. The length is four years but the financial terms were unavailable.
That leaves only first-round pick Maurkice Pouncey unsigned, putting in jeopardy the Steelers' five-year streak of having all of their rookies signed and in training camp on time. Ben Roethlisberger was the last rookie who missed the opening of camp; he signed a contract four days after players reported in 2004.
