LaMarr Woodley: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Woodley suffered a torn bicep in last Sunday's game and is believed to be out for the remainder of the regular season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Woodley agreed to a two-year contract with the Raiders on Thursday that is worth up to $12 million, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Universally viewed as a top pass-rushing outside linebacker just a few years ago, Woodley has seen his stock fall tremendously following a trio of injury-plagued seasons. Still only 29 years old, he has the talent to turn things around, but may not get much help in the Oakland front seven next season. Woodley has spent his entire career playing outside linebacker in a 3-4, but he may be asked to play 4-3 defensive end in Oakland.
Woodley will be released by the Steelers on Tuesday, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Woodley will be classified as a post-June 1 cap casualty, which will make him a free agent starting at 4 ET on Tuesday. The seven-year veteran was due to make $8 million in 2014, and the Steelers didn't feel that the 29-year-old, who had just five sacks in 2013, was worth that type of cap hit. He'll be free to sign elsewhere and automatically becomes one of the top pass-rushing free agents on the market.
Woodley is expected to be released by the Steelers now that Jason Worilds has been signed to a one-year, $9.754 million contract, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Worilds and Jarvis Jones locked in as starters, the release of Woodley, who has missed 14 games and parts of six others since signing a $61.5 million deal in 2011, would clear up $13.6 million in salary cap room for Pittsburgh. Woodley has recorded 56.5 sacks in his seven seasons with the Steelers and, assuming he is waived, should be able to find a home with another NFL team. Which team that is, and the role Woodley plays for them, will dictate his fantasy value in IDP leagues next season.
Woodley (calf) is in danger of being released by the Steelers this offseason, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Woodley's current contract puts the Steelers in a sticky salary cap situation, especially considering the team's needs elsewhere. Due to a calf injury, the linebacker played just 11 games last year, which brought his missed game total to 14 over the past three seasons. With that in mind, Woodley's potential departure would open the door for Jason Worilds to fill a larger role. However, at the moment, Pittsburgh has yet to make a decision on Woodley's future with the team.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Woodley has missed nine games over the past two seasons due to ankle and hamstring injuries. He averaged 11 sacks per season from 2008 to 2011 and, when healthy, Woodley is one of the best pass rushers in the league.

2012

Woodley was the Steelers' co-leader with nine sacks in 2011, despite missing a third of the season to injury. If he can remain healthy, he should breeze past the double-digit sack mark in 2012.

2011

Woodley is one of the league’s clear standouts as far as pass rushing abilities go, but his role as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 leaves him with fewer tackle opportunities than most of the players against whom he’s competing. But Woodley is a bit better in the tackle department than many 3-4 pass rushers, as he made it to 60 tackles in the two seasons before last, when his total fell to 50. Either way, sacks are always the attraction with Woodley, who has three consecutive years in double-digits. Target him if that’s the sort of production you’re looking for.

2010

Woodley had an 11.5 sack campaign in 2008, but for the first half of 2009, it almost looked like a fluke. He had just two sacks (both coming in the same game) through the first eight weeks of the season. However, he then went on an absolute tear, racking up 11.5 QB takedowns in the final eight games of the season. His 13.5 sacks led the team and was the third-highest total in the league. Woodley's low tackle numbers drag down his value a bit (he had 60 and 62 in 2008 and 2009 respectively), but his 25 sacks over the last two seasons shows he is more than capable of putting up double-digit sacks for the third straight season.

2009

Woodley’s sophomore campaign was his first season as a starter and he did not disappoint with 11.5 sacks through his first 11 games. Although he was quiet the last four games of the season, he made up for it with a total of six sacks in the playoffs. His tackle numbers (60 total in 2008) keep him from being an elite IDP option, but he should see an increase in that category and again record double-digit sacks.

2008

Woodley was able to notch four sacks as a rookie last year despite seeing limited playing time. With incumbent left outside linebacker Clark Haggans having moved on to Arizona, Woodley will inherit Haggans' starting position and could be a nice sleeper in IDP leagues. Though there is certainly no guarantee of how well Woodley will transition to his role as a starter in Pittsburgh's 3-4 scheme, he is very talented and has the ceiling to reach double-digit sack totals.

2007

Woodley projects as a great situational pass rusher for Pittsburgh but it remains to be seen how smooth his transition will be to professional football. He finished with 12 sacks as a senior from the defensive end spot but also saw considerable action at linebacker for Michigan -- versatility that will help him with the Steelers.
