Steelers Trade for Baltimore Ravens DL Chris Wormley

Published

on

The Steelers have made a rare intra-division trade, acquiring Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Chris Wormley and exchanging a pair of 2021 draft picks.

According to a report by Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Steelers will send a 2021 fifth-round draft pick to Baltimore in exchange for the Wormley and a 2021 seventh-round pick.

Wormley, 26, is a 6-foot-5, 298-pound defensive lineman from Toledo, Ohio that the Ravens drafted in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of Michigan.

In three years with the Ravens, Wormley played in 39 games, including all 16 in each of the last two seasons and made 15 starts. He recorded 33 tackles, six quarterback hurries, two tackles for a loss and 1.5 sacks in 2019, all of which set or tied career highs.

Wormley played both defensive end and tackle for the Ravens and could help the Steelers offset the loss of starting nose tackle Javon Hargrave to free agency.

Wormley is entering the final year of a four-year contract and will carry a $2.133 million cap hit with the Steelers.

The Ravens acquired defensive lineman Calias Campbell from the Jacksonville Jaguars in a trade and signed nose tackle Michael Brockers in free agency, which likely made Wormley available.
