The holder of an MBA from Stanford University, Timothy “Tim” Shields is a former JP Morgan associate who draws on more than 25 years of financial experience in his role as a program and portfolio manager with UBS. When he isn’t managing long-term process and technology projects with UBS, Tim Shields enjoys following his favorite National Football League (NFL) team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles won the 2018 Super Bowl and the team entered the offseason with plans of further improving its roster to potentially repeat as champions. One move the team made to help in that regard was the signing of free agent linebacker Paul Worrilow to a one-year contract. A 27-year-old native of Wilmington, Delaware, Worrilow was originally signed by the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent. He spent 4 seasons with the Falcons and compiled 383 tackles, 11 defended passes, 4 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, and 2 interceptions. He started 8 of 13 games last season with the Detroit Lions.
Worrilow joins an impressive linebacker group in Philadelphia including Nigel Bradham, Mychal Kendricks, Jordan Hicks, and the recently acquired Corey Nelson. While he might have serious competition for playing time at the position, he should see plenty of snaps with the Eagles’ special teams unit.
