Woodley “Disappointed” the Steelers Have Not Given Him a New Deal

LaMarr Woodley spoke to Yahoo! Sports about the contract situation, and how the Steelers are not going to give him a new deal till the end of his rookie deal, which expires at the end of 2010.

The Steelers it has been bantered about will give him a long-term deal, and plan on keeping him around for a long time to come. Despite that, Woodley is not happy about having to wait to cash in despite his dedication to the club.

“I’m not going to lie – I was a little disappointed that they didn’t offer anything at all,” Woodley said. “I felt that was a little weird. I guess they decided they’re going to sit back and wait for the CBA and all that to play out.

“You look around the league and you see different teams getting stuff done with their players in similar situations, and you think, ‘What, the Steelers don’t care about me?’ Stuff like that goes through your mind.”

Woodley insisted he’ll channel his anger toward having another stellar season and that his dissatisfaction won’t affect him on the field. “That’s what I love to do, go out and hit somebody,” he said. “I don’t see anything happening this year but all my numbers increasing.”

A long-term deal and a lot of money with that deal will make the hard feelings go away, I don’t think the Steelers are planning on the future without Woodley, and he will be here despite some harsh words right now.
