Titans sign Wesley Woodyard

Justin Edmonds

It was fun Woody, you'll be missed by all.

Standout linebacker Wesley Woodyard is signing with the Tennessee Titans today, according to reports.

He will be an inside linebacker for the Titans, a position that some believe the Broncos still need to address.

Woodyard played six seasons with the Denver Broncos, mainly as the backup to D.J. Williams under the Mike Shanahan and Josh McDaniels eras. It wasn't until John Fox and Jack Del Rio took over that Woodyard started to make a real impact on the defense.

In 2012, as starting outside linebacker, some believe Woodyard should have been a Pro Bowler, amassing 117 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and three interceptions - a rare combination of impressive stats. Those numbers didn't translate in 2013, when Woodyard switched to the middle linebacker position, suffered a neck stinger in the middle of the season, and was ultimately benched for Paris Lenon.

According to the Denver Post, it's a four-year, $16 million deal for Woodyard.

Since he was an undrafted rookie in 2008, I always loved Wesley. He is the prototypical undersized "try hard" guy. He always seemed to give his all on each and every play. That is part of the reason why he was so loved by not only fans, but teammates; His humor and spirit was the icing on the cake.

We all wish you the best Wesley. You will be missed.
