The Pittsburgh Steelers will part ways with longtime linebacker LaMarr Woodley.
According to a report from ESPN, the Steelers will release him shortly after free agency begins on Tuesday at 4 p.m. This move was expected after the Steelers placed the transition tag on Jason Worilds. It's expected that the Steelers try to get a new long-term deal with Worilds during the offseason.
Woodley's contract was unfriendly cap wise for the Steelers. In 2014, he was slated to carry a $13.59 million cap figure.
Selected by the Steelers in the second round of the 2007 draft, Woodley has played all seven seasons with Pittsburgh. Injuries limited him in 2013, however, as he finished with 36 combined tackles and five sacks in 11 games.
