The Steelers have decided not to give LaMarr Woodley a contract extension before the start of the 2010 season, according to James Walker of ESPN.
Our View: Woodley is in the final year of his rookie deal and will make $550,000 this season, and Pittsburgh apparently likes the deal too much to pass it up. The Steelers rarely negotiate in-season, so Woodley looks like he'll become a free agent next year.
Wouldn't it be great to have him come in next year and line up with Harris? Taylor's a 1 year loan obviously, so there'll be room. Can we afford Harris and Woodley?
the future is now. woodley may be a good fit but he's probably going to want a payday. if revis gets his 15M plus d'brick at 10M plus sanchez at 6M plus mangold at 7M and harris around 7M and the jets will have already commited 45M for just 5 players. what about the other 48? using rough numbers if the cap is about 110 then that leaves 65M for the other 48 or about 1.25 M each. nothing to sneeze at but it shows how much the huge contracts will have to be tempered with cheap contracts.
As insane as it would be to add Lamaar Woodley to this defense I really don't think it's going to be realistic. We have a ton of contracts coming up and unless we less someone walk (Cromartie being the most likely assuming Wilson doesn't bust and is able to take the #2 spot) I don't see it happening.
But if it does...this team is going to completely demolish not only the other team but probably pop the football when hitting offensive players.
We won't ever be able to sign him too with all our other guys but he's definitely a badass.....If you watched Michigan football at all, you knew he was going to be atleast a very good pro, as he just screamed "football player". Gotta love teams relying way too much on the combine :yes:
we need to pay Mangold FIRST.....then Harriss and then one of the wr and then think about signing someone else. Next offseason will be huge for us we have to give out a lot of money and pick who we want pending on how the season goes and how they play,
[QUOTE=VincenzoTestaverde;3644595]It depends. Let's think about 2011.
Woodley + Cro + Wilson is probably > Revis + Gholston + Wilson
No knock on Revis but if you have a demon pass rusher using Rex's Blitzing schemes you don't necessarily need an all-world corner.[/QUOTE]
Im sure people are going to say youre insane, but I think the above "situation" is something to think about.
As amazing as Revis is....if he is getting $16 million per, and starting next to Wilson next year, with Cro leaving as a FA, is that really better then Cro getting $5 million per, starting next to wilson and the jets resigning all their core guys, possibly getting another $8million player, and an additional draft pick in a trade involving Revis?
Yes wilson was the BPA at the time and was a great pick on talent alone....but I think the front office is absolutely looking at him and Cro as a possible fall-back plan if this Revis thing gets too out of hand.
