The Oakland Raiders got some good news in free agency Thursday, one day after voiding top target Rodger Saffold's contract because of a bad shoulder.
The Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday placed the franchise tag on linebacker LaMarr Woodley.
"I don't feel like it's any different than playing a 3-4 outside linebacker, where you are still kind of the defensive end," Woodley said. "The only thing about the 3-4 scheme is that you are asked to drop back and cover receivers and you are standing up rushing. You still have to play the run, you still have to get after the quarterback, and that's no different from a 4-3 end."
"We know what it's like to be on a winning team, and we know what it takes to get there," Woodley said. "I think that we're both proven guys, had some injuries here and there that slowed us up, but when we're 100 percent out there on the football field, we bring it."
