    I believe that Jones enters camp in an open competition for the ROLB position. From what we have seen over the years, Worilds produces better at the LOLB spot. We also saw the Steelers linked to every outside pass rusher available in FA - Dumervil, Freeney, and bringing in the guy from the Cowboys - I forget his name at the moment.

    Smokescreen? It seems not. The team wasted no time in making the pick. A combination of believing that this was the guy and assessing this as an area of need.

    I think a lot of you are over thinking this pick. I think he was by far the BPA on the Steeler board so they chose him. It had nothing to do with Worilds. Just the Steelers doing what they normally do. Remember it was only a couple of months ago where this guy was considered top 5. Then the spinal thing came up and then the bad numbers in the underwear olympics and he dropped. I'm as excited with the Jones pick as I was last year with DeCastro.

    But, the Steelers did not think Lee would be available when it came their turn.

    When he was, it seemed like an obvious choice. But coach Mike Tomlin really liked Worilds, an undersized defensive end in college who fit nicely as a disruptive outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense -- something the Steelers were lacking behind James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley.

    Penn State alum Sean Lee inks lucrative deal with Dallas Cowboys

    WEDNESDAY, 21 AUGUST 2013 WRITTEN BY MARK DENT

    In the last couple of years former Penn State linebacker Sean Lee has been recognized as one of the best linebackers in the NFL. And now he's set to be paid like one.

    The Dallas Morning News reports that Lee has signed a six-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys worth a base of $42 million. The contract will pay him more if he stays healthy - something that has been difficult for Lee in his three-year NFL career. The 2010 second round pick has dealt with hamstring, wrist and toe issues in those three seasons.

    In his NFL career, he has 195 tackles and seven interceptions.

    Lee over Worilds could have been awesome... HOWEVER, as the article pointed out, he's always hurt... 195 tackles in 3 seasons is not that much... heck, it's barely "average" for 2 full seasons... Plus, Lee wasn't even the best LB left on the board.. turns out Navarro Bowman's better... and healthy

    Besides, if we're going to "what if"... in my what if scenario, i suggested the team trade up for Patrick Willis... or, instead of Mendenhall and Limas, DeVille wanted Sam Baker and Ray Rice... we'd be happy fans! (yep, i said Rice was the best RB on the board -- i did)...

    Good luck to Lee, but, he's a Cowboy - i'm rooting for Steelers...

    Wait, we are talking INJURIES when discussing someone we could have had instead of JASON WORILDS?????
    At least Lee needs to be a full time starter to be seen as "injury prone".
