The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed seventh-round rookie defensive tackle Doug Worthington to a three-year deal with a total base value of nearly $1.25 million, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

Worthington received a signing bonus in excess of $33,000 and base salaries of $320,000, $405,000 and $490,000.

Worthington registered 103 career tackles, 12 for losses and 4 1/2 sacks at Ohio State.

Drafted 242nd overall, Worthington is an athletic 6-foot-5, 292-pounder who posted 42 tackles and two sacks last season.

Worthington ran the 40-yard dash in 5.02 seconds, also turning in a 35 1/2 vertical leap and a 10-01 broad jump.

Worthington played in the East-West Shrine all-star game.

He was an honorable-mention All-Big Ten Conference selection last season.

Good to see the Steelers are signing some worthy depth to their team. I hope these guys can someday become more than a ST or back up.

with no salary cap ceiling or basement, they should have signed him for less.

Worthington just looks like a player. Don't know a whole lot about him but camp is coming soon. Only time will tell, but I have a good feeling about this guy.
