Lamarr Woodley signs with Raiders

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders land their second pass rusher of the day in reeling in outside linebacker Lamarr Woodley, the team announced Thursday. This after signing defensive end Justin Tuck earlier in the day. Woodley signs a reported 2-year deal worth $12 million according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 29-year old linebacker spent the first seven years with the Pittsburgh Steelers after they made him their second round pick in the 2007 draft. The Steelers won the Super Bowl in 2008 with Woodley as their Woodley as their everyday starting outside linebacker. He then made his only trip to the Pro Bowl in 2009. The Steelers were back in the Super Bowl in 2010.

Woodley had double digit sacks all three of those seasons, though he has seen his production go down the past couple seasons. He was cut this week in a salary cap cutting move.

The 6-2, 266 pound pass rusher could be moved to defensive end to help replace the Lamarr the team lost (Houston) in free agency.

In a conference call earlier today, Justin Tuck said he would be acting as a recruiter to convince Woodley to sign with the Raiders. The two of them bring three Super Bowl rings with them and a lot of experience.

The Raiders also hosted defensive tackle Jason Hatcher Thursday. He signed with the Redskins today per his agent.
