Lions' Paul Worrilow: Will try out both OLB positions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions will work out Worrilow at both strongside and weakside linebacker in OTAs, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Worrilow was quite the success story during his rookie season with the Falcons in 2013 when he racked up 127 tackles and two sacks as the team's starting middle linebacker after going undrafted out of Delaware. Despite churning out 142 and 95 tackles in each of the two seasons that followed, he lost his starting spot to second-round rookie Deion Jones in 2016 and ultimately finished the year with only 21 tackles to his name. However, Worrilow has a chance to revive his career in Detroit, where there's currently a huge need for talent at outside linebacker, especially after the release of DeAndre Levy. He could fit in at both of the strongside and weakside outside linebacker positions and the Lions' plans to try him out at both spots should help the team determine where he best fits into the defense and could only add to his versatility as a player. Considering how Levy recorded triple-digit tackle numbers in three of four seasons between 2011 and 2014 while operating in an every-down OLB role for the Lions, the potential is there for Worrilow to have a resurgent 2017 campaign if he's able to secure a starting job.

Lions' Paul Worrilow: Signs with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Worrilow signed a one-year contract with the Lions on Wednesday, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press reports.

Formerly of the Falcons, Worrilow operated as a starter for most of the 2013-15 seasons but was largely relegated to special teams work this past year. However, he could be a good fit with the Lions, a team in dire need of linebackers who can cover in space.

Falcons' Paul Worrilow: Cleared to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Worrilow (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Worrilow popped up on the Falcons' injury report after the illness prevented him from practicing Friday, but with a day off to recover, it's not expected that he'll face any limitations. The middle linebacker has a pair of 120-plus-tackle seasons on his resume, but after being displaced by Deion Jones for the starting role in 2016, Worrilow remains off the IDP radar.

Worrilow (illness) did not practice Friday but should be ready for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Worrilow doesn't appear to be in danger of missing this week's action. He'll likely assume his usual role rotating in behind Deion Jones at middle linebacker.

Worrilow (groin) will play against the Chargers on Sunday.

Worrilow hasn't played since Week 2, when he needed to go under the knife to repair a groin injury. However, despite his active status, he's now buried on the depth chart and may struggle to earn playing time.
