Steelers expect agreement Thursday with second-round pick
Share with others:
The Steelers 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, will sign his contract by then, agent Jason Bernstein predicted this afternoon. Bernstein said while the contract is not yet concluded, he expects it to be finished probably sometime Thursday.
That would leave 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 signed a contract after camp opened, in 2004.
