#Steelers @LaMarrWoodley did not play poorly after signing big contract in '11. He was on fire. The facts here:
Woodley did not go from one of the best pass-rushing outside linebackers in the league to underperformer simply because he signed a big contract in 2011 worth $61.5 million over six years. He signed that contract in August, not long after the owners’ lockout ended and training camps opened. He then went on to become one of the NFL’s best pass rushers through the first half of the 2011 season with nine sacks through eight games. Hamstring injuries ruined the second half of that season and he did not have another sack.
