Woodley on front burner
According to a league source, Steelers executive Omar Khan has indicated to agent Doug Hendrickson of Octagon Sports, that working out a long-term deal with LaMarr Woodley is on the front burner for the team.
The two sides have had initial contact coming out of the lockout and both sides are prepared to workout a long-term deal that would likely be among the biggest deals in team history.
“There is strong mutual interest, ” a source involved in the negotiations said late Tuesday night.
The biggest deal given to a linebacker in Steelers history was a 6 year – $51.7 million contract James Harrison signed in 2009, that included a $20 million signing bonus.
Woodley, 26, is carrying a $10.1 million cap hit.
