The deal is a six-year, $61.5 million contract that runs through the 2016 season.
its a few million more than what i would have guessed, i was thinking more like 9 million a year , 6 year 54 mill with 27 mill guaranteed ... i like woodley and am glad we have him, but he tends to be a non factor in a lot of games....

agreed i love him and glad we have him but we overpaid him. he dissapears in to many games, especially th first half of the year

Woodley is in coverage just as much as harrison is

seems like are front office cant win..

cause now if we of only offered him 9 million a year and he left,... then people would bitch that are front office is cheap... im pretty sure they know what they are doing..


plus, when the stage is the biggest he shows up

Woodley has added 11 sacks in seven career postseason appearances.

id rather know we have him, then worrying that he could go elsewhere

isnt that kind of like saying a baseball player disappears in a game in april?


, if he is making big plays in the playoffs. i'll take my chances with him rather than against him... plus he wants to be here

trust in the Rooney's and will be rewarded


what was everyone expecting lamar's contract to be?

no its not. you have to win to get there and there are only 16 games in football. this isnt communisim here, everyone dosnt have to agree with every move the Rooneys make. some of you guys think its a sin or act of treason to question the steelers judgment. come on guys, wake up. this is the united states and we have the freedom of speach. i said i loved Woodley but think he got more then i would of paid

if woodley left in free agency you would be the same bunch saying he was over rated and we didnt need him just like some of you did with holmes. when i said we wouldnt resign holmes everyone acted like i was a freaking terrorist then when we cut him loose the same guys talked shit on him and said we didnt need someone like that

Woodley wasn't in coverage as much as Harrison. Not even close.

(Credit to Still Mill)
Harrison: Rushed 22 times, coverage 18 times, and 2 quick pass plays where it was nearly impossible to discern his task.
Woodley: Rushed 33 times, coverage 9 times

He beats Harrison in sacks exclusively because of this and the fact that he usually is matched one-on-one. How many times have you seen Harrison mauled, i.e. held? Woodley doesn't demand an extra blocker. Harrison does. Ol' Lamarr has 1 bullrush move and if you can contain that, like rookie Bryan Bulaga did for the Packers, game over.
