Titans Gave Former Steelers DL Al Woods $1.9 Million Guaranteed
The Tennessee Titans signed free agent defensive lineman Al Woods away from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wednesday and thanks to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1, we now know what the two-year deal looks like.
The max Woods can earn over two years is $5 million. He received a $1 million signing bonus and base salaries of $900,000 and $2.1 million. In addition, he can earn up to $500,000 in incentives in each of those years.
Judging by the numbers, Woods will have a 2014 cap charge of $1.4 million and a 2015 cap charge of $2.6 million. Should he earn any incentives in 2014, that will be tacked on to his 2015 cap charge.
In a February post, I estimated Woods of having a value of $1.13333 million a season to the Steelers so it’s understandable why he left. It would be fun to know if the Steelers even offered him a deal, but unfortunately we’ll likely never know for sure.
