Broncos keep Wesley Woodyard on two-year deal

Citing Wesley Woodyard’s agent, ESPN’s Josina Anderson reports that the free agent linebacker has agreed on a two-year deal to stay with the Broncos.

Woodyard, 25, has been a special teams dynamo for the past four seasons in Denver. While smallish (6-foot, 220) for a linebacker, Woodyard did post career highs in tackles (97) and forced fumbles (two) last year, starting 7-of-16 games. Woodyard is an undersized overachiever. He entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Kentucky.

Woodyard will be Denver’s primary nickel linebacker in 2012. He replaces Joe Mays at middle linebacker on passing downs.

    A must sign. Way to good to let go. An underrated role player for sure. One of those ff won us the Chicago game.
