The Pittsburgh Steelers are re-signing yet another one of their free agent defensive players and this time it is defensive end Chris Wormley, per Jordan Strack, Sports Director at WTOL-TV. It’s reportedly a two-year deal for Wormley, who became an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday.
Chris Wormley is re-signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s a 2-year deal, I’m told.

The Steelers acquired Wormley from the Baltimore Ravens via an offseason trade about a full year ago and part of that deal was inheriting his $2.133 million salary for 2020. Wormley missed three games in his first season with the Steelers due to a knee injury and that played a big part in him logging just 148 regular season defensive snaps and just 23 special teams snaps. He did play in the Steelers playoff loss to the Browns and logged 16 defensive snaps and four more on special teams in that contest. In total, Wormley registered just eight total regular season tackles, one tackle for loss, one sack, and three quarterback hits.
