    I'd say that's a pretty friendly contract for what he could be on the field next season. I know its a matter of too much money and not enough production but when he was healthy last season he was effective. I guess in the end I'd rather have the addition of Mitchell in the secondary over the 50/50 shot with woodley.

    LaMarr Woodley hoped to go home, Detroit didnít take his calls

    Posted by Michael David Smith on March 16, 2014



    Before signing a two-year, $12 million contract with the Raiders, LaMarr Woodley reached out to the Lions. They werenít interested.

    Woodley, who grew up in Michigan and played his college football at Michigan, told Terry Foster of CBS Detroit that he wanted to play at home so badly that he wanted to take less money to do it, but the Lions never returned his calls.

    Itís not surprising that Woodley was open to taking less money to go home. He has shown in the past that his ties to his home town mean more to him than money; we noted a couple of years ago that Woodley had donated $60,000 to make up the difference when budget cuts hit the athletic department of his old high school.

    But itís also not a big surprise that the Lions werenít interested. Woodley has slowed down and battled injuries in the last few years, and heís not a great fit for the Lionsí defense. In the community, Woodley as a Lion would have been great. On the football field, Woodley as a Raider makes more sense.

    no wonder Woodley signed with the Raiders. they want him to gain weight...

    Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen suggests LaMarr Woodley's injuries were caused by a lack, not presence, of weight

    By Steel Spike on Mar 25 2014



    According to Raiders coach Dennis Allen, playing out of position is why Woodley was injured so much. The weight he had to shed to play outside linebacker with the Steelers was the root, Allen suggested in an interview with NFL.com.

    In an interview with NFL.com's Around The League, Allen talked about how he thinks the reason ex-Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley was injured so much recently is because he was playing out of his natural, college position of 4-3 defensive end.

    Apparently, according to Allen, forcing Woodley to keep his weight down was contributory to him getting hurt.

    "That's what he was in college," Allen explained, "and really body-type-wise, they always had to kind of keep (his weight) down in Pittsburgh and that's maybe one of the reasons he had some injury issues."

    The Raiders plan on using Woodley as a defensive end, after having him bulk up to 270-275. Sounds like that will definitely work out for them. Taking a guy who has had weight and leg issues, and making him bigger.

    Adding to the absurdity, Allen directly compared Matt Schaub to Peyton Manning.

    "We have a quarterback now that's on par with the quarterbacks in this division," Allen said Tuesday at the NFL Annual Meeting

    Just win, baby!

    Of course! All this time I was fooling myself into believing that carrying more weight is worse for your legs...
