I guess no home town discount... I'm glad we got him, but I do think the price is pretty high. The OLB is the most important position on the D my opinion, we need super stars there. I am glad we kept him and hope he earns every penny...

I agree, with what your saying except you do have to win in baseball also to make the playoffs (just see our lovely pirates, crapping the bed lately) but anyway


but what do you think he should of got paid?
and how many years?
6-7 million a year would be fair. Over 10 is absolutely ridiculous even though only 6.5 of it was against the cap.

Harrison, won't finish his contract here and Woodley might not either, but he has a better chance. I haven't decided if it's better or not.

Far worse. Harrison deserves every penny for what he got. He's the most complete/ best outside linebacker in the NFL. How many others are as good in run support as him? None. Not Ware. Definitely not Matthews. If he were allowed to rush the passer as much as Ware he would easily have 18-20 sacks a season.

I hate to rain on your guys' parade that overrated Lamarr Woodley got signed to a huge deal, but how do you think we sign Polamalu and most importanly, Timmons next year? Answer: we can't. I don't even think we'll be able to afford deals even if we cut Ward, Farrior, Smith, and Foote.

One thing I forgot to say, is I see the CAP going way up in the years to come and this might turn out to be reasonable...

I think we sigh both and the cap going up, along with the departures will allow it to happen.

I love everything about this. I love Lamarr Woodley, he has to be my favorite Steeler behind Polamalu. The guy is an animal plain and simple.

As opposed to this?

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali, also designated a franchise player, signed a five-year, $60 million contract on Thursday. His deal reportedly includes $35milion guaranteed.

Looks like Woodley's deal reflects the reality of what the market is for LBs

Like I said ealier, the cap increasing, might make this deal better in years to come. By the way, I would much rather have Woodley than Hali...
