Report: Eagles plan to resign LB Paul Worrilow to a one-year deal
29 January 2019 Eagles News
According to a report by NJ.com, the Eagles plan on resigning linebacker Paul Worrilow to a one year deal.
Before he could even suit up for the Eagles, Worrilow tore his ACL. However, the Eagles clearly see value in him after they kept him around the whole season and are going to bring him back. And, it makes sense, Worrilow is an experienced player who adds not just a good leader to the team, but some seriously good depth at a very cheap number.
In his career, Worrilow has 415 total tackles, four sacks, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles. He has bounced around the league, but really had a good stint with the Atlanta Falcons. Being from Delaware, Worrilow was pumped about playing for his hometown team last season.
“They had a great year last year. This is a talented team. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of this, especially in this city? Growing up (near) here I know how important it is for the Eagles to win, and that’s cool and something I want to be a part of.” (Via EaglesWire)
Worrilow has the motivation to play for the Eagles and he’s going to be a valuable piece going forward. He’s going to give the Eagles quality reps on both defense and special teams. It is a good move for the Eagles to bring him back.
