Agent says Paul Worrilow has agreed to terms with Lions

Free agent linebacker Paul Worrilow is leaving Atlanta for Detroit.

Worrilow has agreed to terms with the Lions, his agent announced on Twitter.

The league’s “legal tampering” rules prohibit “announcing that an agreement in principle or similar agreement has been reached.” But that rule only restricts what teams may do, and this announcement came from the agent, not the team.

The 26-year-old Worrilow signed with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent in 2013 and was a starter for his first three seasons. Last year he played in 12 games, with one start. He was primarily a special teams player in 2016, getting on the field for 15 percent of the Falcons’ defensive snaps and 53 percent of the Falcons’ special teams snaps.

    I think Detroit is forgetting that they are the lions. What is happening? I miss the days of Detroit being the NFC Browns.

    Sounds like a Bush/Wilson incentive laden type of deal that they signed last offseason.

    If true, I love it. Keeps guys hungry and competing, as shown by the safety reps that both Bush and Wilson got last year.

    January’s off must be a priority for him.

    A good depth signing, I really hope he only plays special teams this season, if he is logging significant snaps at LB then something has gone awry.

    I like Bob Quinn’s moves so far since he took the reins. As long as he steers clear of Joe Mixon…
