Though the Pittsburgh Steelers have yet to sign coach Mike Tomlin to an extension, they’ve successfully negotiated contracts with two of their newest employees.
Linebacker Thaddeus Gibson, a fourth-round selection in the 2010 draft, has agreed to terms. Gibson played college football at Ohio State.
Defensive tackle Doug Worthington has signed, too. He arrived via the compensatory phase of the seventh round. He also played at Ohio State.
The Steelers announced the moves on Friday afternoon, but disclosed no terms. They often sign lower-round picks to three-year deals, even though the league permits a maximum of four.
