Joe Douglas and the New York Jets sign veteran linebacker Paul Worrilow to the practice squad after Blake Cashman hits the IR.

The New York Jets signed veteran linebacker Paul Worrilow to the practice squad Wednesday morning, per the team’s official website.

Worrilow, 30, dressed in four games for the Jets a year ago. He signed with the team in early November after retiring just one day into a contract with the Baltimore Ravens prior to the season.

The move comes in conjunction with Blake Cashman hitting IR. Cashman exited Week 1’s 27-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills with a groin injury, and with Avery Williamson‘s status still unknown, the Jets are left with just one healthy inside linebacker (Neville Hewitt). Harvey Langi and maybe Frankie Luvu are the other inside linebacker depth candidates.

Worrilow signed with the Atlanta Falcons in 2013 as an undrafted free agent and enjoyed four solid seasons there. He nearly won a Super Bowl, but Tom Brady and the New England Patriots overcame a 28-3 deficit, crushing the Falcons’ season.

After a single season in Detroit with the Lions, Worrilow signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018 but missed the entire season due to a torn ACL suffered during OTAs.

Worrilow has tallied two interceptions, four sacks, 11 passes defensed and 415 tackles in 72 career NFL games.
