It would be crazy for them to let Woodley go in favor of keeping Smith. Hood stepped up just fine this year, and is ready to start (for a lot less) IMO. I love what Aaron has done for us, but there's no sense in keeping him now.
I think he should man up and take a cut to keep Woodley so they can both be here!

Woodley had yet another sack in the Super Bowl. the guy hasn't played a playoff game yet without recording a sack. he's a slow starter, but is money in the second half of the season and into the playoffs. can't let him go.

Woodley's already made it clear that winning is more important to him than money. I see him remaining a Steeler in '11.

Woodley will probably end up in Pittsburgh West- Arizona if he does go somewhere.

I don't know about that honestly. Most of the guys that have ended up in AZ with Whisenhunt are guys that were on the team when Whiz coached here. Woodley was drafted under Tomlin. Not saying your idea is bad but I don't think it's automatic. I think we end up keeping Woodley honestly. He doesn't seem to be a guy whose primary concern is a big payday and he likes being here a lot. I really do hope we resign him though.

pat kirwan said today that he has it from a very strong and reliable source (although be it a secondary source- not first hand) that "woodley isnt going anywhere".

keep in mind he is not a reporter, and has friends on the inside who will divulge such information because they know he will not make a news spectacle of it.

I've read that too and hope thats a possibility because thats the only way we're keeping him. His price on the open market is goin to soar sky high.
Our situations in the DB are so drastic at this point we'll never pay market price to keep Woodley when we're fairly solid at LB even without him.

Woodley must stay, as much as I love A.Smith, he has missed the majority of 3 of the last 4 seasons with injuries, I think his time is up.

Woodley aint going anywhere. He's a Steeler, not a money grubber like some of the loud mouths that were on this team in the past. He'll provide a discount to resign with the team. Smith will be back too, but as a valuable backup. Suisham will be back ... I have no clue where people are thinking he's leaving ... he appears to have loyalty to the team that picked him off his couch (during a low point in his life) and it's been written that he is well liked in the locker room and by the coaches. Colon, I predict, will not be back. I really like Willie, but 36% of NFL players never make it back on the field after an Achilles injury and the remaining 64% don't play to the same level prior to injury.
