He is angry that they haven't even tried to sweeten this year's deal.

Good luck to Woodley in his next gig where he won't be playing opposite the NFL'S defensive player of the year. Hope Worilds can fill his shoes.

As a longtime Woodman fan, that's a bummer to hear. 

I can see both sides though.  Would've been nice to see them meet somewhere in the middle on a short term deal considering all CBA issues looming.  Can't say I'm surprised to hear he's unhappy.  When you make about 1/15-1/20th what your counterpart on the same team makes, it breeds contempt.

Guess those 78 LB draft picks over the last few might not've been such a bad idea after all.

Woodley needs to get over it.  He knows he's gonna get paid after this season.  All he can hope to accomplish with the whining is that it won't be in Pittsburgh. 

So, what's up with that?

I agree.

I've had some beefs with Colbert over structures of deals, signing over-the-hills (aka "Finnys"), and some draft choices, but there's no way the Woodman walks.  Not happening.

Defensive starters of proven worth:

James Farrior - 35
Aaron Smith - 34
James Harrison - 32
Casey Hampton - 32
Brett Keisel - 31
Ike Taylor - 30
Ryan Clark - 30
Larry Foote - 30
Troy Polamalu - 29
LaMarr Woodley - 25
Lawrence Timmons - 24

IMO, Bryant McFadden and William Gay are iffy and horrid as starting corners, respectively.  Polamalu, at 29, has been dinged so much that it's impossible to tell how many more years are left.  Draw a line below the guys 30 years old, and what's left?

What's the future of this defense?

With that asterisk beside Polamalu, you have Timmons and Woodley.  Timmons is OK, some good points some bad (nice speed in coverage and blitz packages, gets abused too often in run support), but Woodley has shown himself to be a monster.  Right there are the two young guys you build around, and Woodley is the one playing like a first rounder, not Timmons.

Worilds was drafted to spell, and one day succeed, Harrison -- not Woodley.  If Colbert doesn't sign Woodley to one of the teams largest contracts ever, he's a fucking idiot.  Harrison-Woodley is one of the best OLB tandems ever, and hopefully Woodley-Worilds will be the continuation of that.

Let's not forget he's also 4 ft. tall. If he walked behind Finny, we'd lose him in the ass-beard.

I'd say there's probably fewer years left than most suspect.  Just ask Bob Sanders.

Regarding Mel Gibson, in retrospect, I guess having to play the part of Riggs in the Lethal Weapon series wasn't that much of a stretch from his real life persona.

Thought the same thing on both counts.

Where the hell is Hines, and all the other veterans at?  They need to let Woodley know that this is very common for the Steelers...  I mean, wasn't Harrison the defensive player of the year making a million a year or something?  He needs to cool out, and play football.  This is how the Steelers handle this situation.

Mel Gibson's the road warrior for god's sake.  He can do anything he wants......."A few days ago I saw a rig that could haul that tanker.  You want to get outta here?.....you talk to me."  Think these were his only lines in the whole movie.  Pretty badass considering he was running around with that kid that looked like chaka from Land of the Lost.

Heres a link with figures that will surely be used by Woodleys agent.  Elvis got paid.

I gots no problem using that as a starting point for Woodley.  IMO, Elvis is very, very good, but Woodley is better.

Elvis (26 years old): 3 years as starter, 34.5 sacks (11.5 per), 93 tackles (31 per), 1 INT.
Wood (25 years old): 2 years as starter, 25 sacks (12.5 per), 91 tackles (45.5 per), 1 INT.

Pay the man, and pay him well.

I agree, just dont think that it is going to happen.  Feel it would have hapened already.  IMO Woodley is the #1 LB on the team.

Probably won't get done.  He'll hopefully get his next offseason.

Looking at contracts in general, seems like higher and higher percentages of the deal are guaranteed money in bonuses.  Always used to be a tool with players to renegotiate because they can be injured and cut with no recourse.  Looks to be shifting now.  Sooner or later some team will give an all guaranteed money contract, then that will be over.

No, I don't think it's happening this year.  I have consciously avoided getting too immersed in the CBA talks and having all that shit swimming in my head, but my take is that the Ronneys are waiting that out: Woodley gets extended next year.

I don't doubt at all Woodley will get extended; it's been a long time since we let somebody that indispensble go, maybe as far back as Lake and Woodson, pre-cap.
