Raiders bring in LaMarr Woodley

The Oakland Raiders are serious about bolstering their pass rush.

On the same day they signed former New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck, the Raiders added former Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley on a two-year deal.

It's worth up to $12 million, according to ESPN.

Woodley, 29, had 57 sacks in seven seasons prior to being cut Tuesday.

He was due a $13.59 million salary-cap figure, leading to his release.

He also had injuries last season and finished with just 36 tackles and five sacks in 11 games.
