ESPN: Woodley Going to be Around for a Long Time in Pittsburgh

There was talk about LaMarr Woodley being gone for sometime, but now that has shifted and ESPN has a report that says those in Pittsburgh says he will be around for sometime to come:

Pittsburgh insiders insisted this week that LaMarr Woodley, who had 13 1/2 sacks in 2009, will be in the black and gold for a long time. Even if it means eventually using a franchise tag, which Pittsburgh historically has been loathe to do. Once the labor situation is cleared up, the Steelers will approach Woodley about an add-on. As things stand, he is under contract through 2010, and unless unrestricted free-agency is reduced to fewer than five seasons, he is essentially tied to the team for ’11 as well. Only three 3-4 outside linebackers — DeMarcus Ware of Dallas (31), Arizona’s Joey Porter (26 1/2) and Steelers teammate James Harrison (26) — have more sacks than Woodley (25) the past two seasons.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL.
