Raiders Sign Former Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley To A Two Year Contract

Former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley has already found a new home as Adam Schefter of ESPN is now reporting that the former second-round draft pick has signed a two-year contract with the Oakland Raiders that could be worth as much as $12 million.

I cant wait to look at the break down of this contract as it likely includes some NLTBE incentives related to playing time or sacks.

Woodley was released by the Steelers right before the start of the new league year and designated a post June 1 cut. He has missed 14 games plus parts of several others over the course of the last three seasons.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    Woodley no. That place is just awful

  • Jason

    Suckers

  • Melly

    well, I’m glad we don’t play oak this year!

  • Jason

    Why? If It Was Past September He’d Be Out Injured Anyway.

  • Rob H

    If they didn’t load it with playing time incentives they are insane. I like it though, my only fear with releasing him was that he would end up on a rival like the Pats or Browns, and somehow find the “fountain of youth and health.”

  • steelster

    Welcome to the black hole, Lamarr

  • William Bigelow

    Ahhhhh Oakland, the place where once good players go to die ….

  • Shannon Stephenson

    If Woodley can stay healthy they got a steal for a couple of years. I am sure he will be in shape and will have a HUGE year.

  • Rob H

    That’s an awful HUGE if with Woodley, I’m not saying it’s impossible, but it would be the first huge year he’s had in quite a while. Although he has been working out with Dwyer this off-season, so he’s got that goin’ for him.

    glad you found a spot woodley ..and also glad you didnt find one in afc north like james did but now james is out again i hope he finds some thing other then in afc north again

  • Steve

    He was in shape last year, Butler said the best shape he has ever seen Lamar in and the wheels fell off. Woodley needs to follow Troys workouts from last year to make a difference.

  • Jefferson_St_Joe

    Oakland primarily runs a 4-3, so it will be interesting to see how they use him.

  • charles

    Does this affect our cap?

  • steelster

    good point.

  • steelster

    The signing no, but we still owe Woodley over 13 million dollars for his 2014 salary.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    Do we get a comp next yr for woodly

  • Brendon Glad

    Pretty sure if u cut them, you don’t.

  • Brendon Glad

    Probably assures that he won’t come back to haunt us…I thought the cut was a great move….and if he plays tremendous in OAK, I’ll give all credit to the fact that the Steelers CUT him…before I criticize the Steelers FOR CUTTING him. He’s talented enough that a wake-up call may do just that. But in OAK it all will have to come from within….because they ain’t no New England.

  • Brendon Glad

    Why? Would we LOSE to them, as opposed to merely lose to them?

  • Jason

    no

  • shawn

    PERFECT place for Woodley to end up just Perfect … fits him Exactly .. he deserves every bit of it !

  • shawn

    couldn’t say it better than that … such a perfect ending for Woodley’s career !

  • shawn

    Huh ?

  • steelster

    yes, and for Woodley I have a hard time believing that it will come from within.

  • alex

    dam, really wanted another pick to add to the Ziggy comp…:(

  • steeltown

    For some reason it just seems right… I don’t know why, but I can see his name in an OAK jersey

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Doesnt mean he stayed in shape during the year just that he came in great shape. He played well the first half of the season which tells me he still has it if he wants it and with this release it should give him the motivation.

  • Steve

    Will be SOSDD with Woodley. Missed 14 games in last 3 years which equals close to missing 5 games per season. Thats missing 1/3 of the season, Good Riddance. We need players not bench warmers.

  • charles

    So the Woodhead is getting paid twice, once by us and once by Oakland?
    Did Colbert try to trade him for anything?
