Totally agree. Shocked we haven't seen articles talking about how important a long term Woodley deal becomes to the Steelers with cap issues. I don't remember the Steelers allowing too many guys to stay a Franchise Player during a season. They usually slap the Franchise tag on them at the beginning of free agency, then work out the long term deal before the season begins. At least they did that with Starks a few years back. Extending Polamalu's contract would actually save them money this year. The costly contract would be Timmons ... he's working off his cheaper rookie contract and his next deal will most likely cost more.
