UPDATE: The Eagles officially announced they’ve re-signed Paul Worrilow. Original story below.
The Philadelphia Eagles plan to re-sign impending free agent linebacker Paul Worrilow to a one-year contract, according to a report from BGN alumnus Mike Kaye. The deal is likely for the veteran minimum.
Worrilow — a Wilmington, Delaware native — originally signed with the Eagles in April 2018. Philadelphia brought him in to be a versatile backup linebacker who can also also contribute on special teams.
Unfortunately for Worrilow, he suffered an ACL tear during the Eagles’ first OTA practice on May 22. The Eagles placed Worrilow on injured reserve and he remained there for the entire 2018 season.
It makes sense that the Eagles would bring the 28-year-old Worrilow back considering linebackers Jordan Hicks, D.J. Alexander, and LaRoy Reynolds are currently set to be free agents in March. Worrilow will have a chance to compete for a spot on the Eagles’ 2019 53-man roster.
