My guess he is cut with a post-June 1 designation.
Disappointing as he was a great pick and had some good years. Add that we don't know what we have with JJones (but he's a first round pick who will be given the nod to start next year) and it is a mess.
Might be right. Agreed on both counts - Woodley's early promise, and the questions surrounding Jarvis.
Wonder if we might just split the difference, ride Woodley a year to see how it goes, and cut him in 2015 for half the cap ding if it's the same old shit. One last chance and all. And one more chance for Jarbust.
Post a steelersdepot noting that w/o Woodley (or had Worilds gone elsewhere), we have nothing behind the starters. Depending on what happens with add'l extensions and cuts beyond today's, I would be okay keeping Woodley as I don't believe JJones will be a successful starter for at least the first half of the 2014 season.
Might JJones be the one gone if he can't progress?
A shit the bed of epic proportions if so.
Still think a move to buck needs considered, especially since two starters at OLB are on roster, for now at least.
Depth is atrocious at all LB spots. Still no idea why Carter was never tried at ILB, where his measurables would rank him among elite (cf. Kuechly). But let's just have him suffer through being miscast as a fill-in OLB, for which he cannot possibly succeed, now, then, ever.
