PITTSBURGH (AP) - The battle to replace departed outside linebacker James Harrison is turning into a three-man race for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Jason Worilds, Chris Carter and rookie Jarvis Jones are all vying for the chance to replace Harrison, who was cut in March before signing with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Worilds collected five sacks during spot duty in 2012, tied for second most on the team. Carter has struggled to stay healthy during his two-year career while Jones is the heir apparent after being taken in the first round of the NFL Draft. Second-year man Adrian Robinson is also getting a look.
Linebackers coach Keith Butler said Jones' pass coverage is better than advertised but he remains very raw after spending his time at Georgia strictly as a pass rusher.
