Allen And Worilds To Start Training Camp As Starters On Defense

Jason Worlids

Training camp is nearing by the second, and while there’s a couple positions that are up for grabs, two vets will start the season as those starters according to Bob Labriola of Steelers.com.

Bob, who will have a pre-camp interview with coach Mike Tomlin posted Wednesday, tweeted the following about two positions that will be competed for during camp in terms of starters to start camp.

Allen will get the start at camp over William Gay, who is back with the team after one season with the Cardinals. He takes over the spot left when Keenan Lewis took a huge deal to go to New Orleans this offseason.

As for Worilds, he’s trying to hold off first-round draft pick Jarvis Jones, who is rumored to be ready to step in and be the starter at OLB for the Steelers once the season starts.

Worilds had five sacks and 26 tackles last season in 16 games for the Steelers, a career-high number as far as sacks go after having five combined his first two seasons in the league.
