Worilds Retires

By Will Brinson/CBSSports.com – The strangest theme from Tuesday’s free-agency action by far was the sudden and abrupt retirement of several young players.

Worilds turned 27 less than 10 days ago — he is at the peak of his athletic powers and improving as a football player, posting 7.5 sacks, an interception, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries for the Steelers last season, a year after posting an 8-sack season.
