Report: Al Woods agrees to deal with Titans

The Titans have added a defensive lineman with the ability to play multiple spots upfront.

According to Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean, Tennessee has reached a deal with Steelers nose tackle/defensive end Al Woods.

Woods, 26, can play defensive end or nose tackle in the 3-4, the defensive scheme the Steelers have long employed and the front the Titans could use with new coordinator Ray Horton. The 6-foot-4, 307-pound LSU product spent the better part of three seasons with Pittsburgh, appearing in 28 games and making two starts. Woods notched 16 tackles and recorded two sacks in 2013 for the Steelers.

According to Wyatt, Woods was slated to visit Arizona and Green Bay — two teams that employ “30” fronts. However, the Titans appear to have closed the deal with Woods, who could be ticketed for a bigger role in Tennessee than he had in Pittsburgh.

    He’s a good player to have…. seems like he’s just getting into a zone…I’m mad we couldn’t keep him I thought he was rising

    As another young player leaves, another old has been in Pittsburg will get an extension. Maybe they just want a defense as old as their D Coordinator.

    I hate to see this guy go. He is a good player. I am starting to get concerned about defensive end. We dont have one. Hood and Keisel are also visiting other teams right now. Steelers better jump in and get one of these two to come back for at least one more season.

    Just think what could have been. Heyward on one end, Woods at the other, and the rookie Nix in the middle…..ah well.

    I’m a little concerned being the only two DL with games played are Heyward and McClendon.

    DL and back up RB seem to be huge needs going into the 2014 season, even more so than corner and ILB.

    Don’t know much about the guy, but I’ll accept Steelers fans’ word that he’s a good pick up.
