Let's look at how well JW's been playing.
Last 4 games - 31 tackles - 5 sacks - 1 FF
Projects for 16 games - 124 tackles - 20 sacks - 4 FF
Worilds has been on an absolute crazy pace on the left. He's playing like the best LB in all of football.
For a comparison to the greatest OLB in Steelers history, James Harrison put up:
101 tackles, 16 sacks, and 7 FFs
Essentially as a LOLB, Jason Worilds is putting up James Harrison type of production. He's not getting the same number of FFs, but he's also not sneaking up behind the QB every time he's rushing. I have a feeling some team is going to look at him and make him the highest paid FA in football this offseason based on these last couple games at LOLB.
That production is off the charts. If we can somehow keep him and Heyward performing at this level on the left next year, JJ should go unblocked on the right.
