Wesley Woodyard to sign with Titans

Divisional Playoffs - Baltimore Ravens v Denver Broncos Getty Images

The Broncos’ defense has added some high-profile parts in free agency, but now there’s a defection from Denver.

Wesley Woodyard, who started 10 games at middle linebacker for the Broncos last season, is signing with the Titans. It’s a four-year, $16 million deal, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

Woodyard has spent his entire career in Denver, arriving as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He’s developed a reputation as a hard-working player and a good guy off the field, and was selected as the team’s Walter Payton Man of the Year at the end of last season.

Woodyard was No. 83 on our Free Agent Hot 100.

    Nice signing. Woodyard is a good player will add some grit to that defence.

    Definite upgrade at the MLB position. Colin McCarthy showed promise but was oft injured and inconsistent. Moise Fokou was even worse. Woodyard should solidify the linebacker corps.

    Solid signing. Still can’t believe we picked up Whitehurst.

    As a Denver fan, sad to see him leave because of his leadership, not because of his play. Watching him at MLB this year showed that he is better suited for the outside. Hopefully he can make a better transition than he did last season.

    As a long time Broncos fan, I’m a bit sad that we didn’t bring Woodyard back. Great leader and hard worker. Good luck in Tennessee.

    Pats could have had Woodyard, Browner, and one or 2 more signings.

    But no, they signed Revis. For one year. And a 2nd year option no team in the NFL can afford.

    How do you say “dying dynasty” with a Boston accent?

    Were gonna have a decent defense next year and im glad we were able to resign pollard. I know we had a decent line last year but i would like to say a big name show up on our line next year. We still need a QB to compete.

    Great signing. Lead the team in tackles for 2011 and 2012, prior to Del Rio coming in. I don’t think Woodyard gets all the credit his is due.

    I am sorry to see Woodyard go. Speed and all out effort. Del Rio never seemed to like Woodyards physical skills favoring a larger MLB. I wish him the best with the Titans.

    Nice guy, way under sized for his position. Hopefully he will be healthy, he’s very injury prone.

    Great guy — plays with a lot of heart and passion. Wish we could have kept him in Denver — never hurts to have leaders like him on the team.

    This isn’t a bad pickup for the Titans. I didn’t mind Mccluster either, but I still can’t understand why we just wasted so much on an unproven backup QB when we have much deeper needs.

    He leads with his helemt and should be called for it more often. If he survives the concussions, he’ll be fine.

    Why do people keep saying the Patriots broke the bank getting Revis?? He’s a one year rental for 12 mil. They have cap space and will have more before too long. Btw they were sittin with Vince about re-structure long before Revis was signed. They were not gonna spend that kind of dough on Vince period. Maybe your team will. Hope so.

    Denver fan here. Congrats to Tennessee on a great signing, Woodyard’s an awesome guy. True competitor who lives and breathes football, he’s all heart and guts on the field. Leaves it all out there. Real leader– he was a team captain every year in Denver, from rookie UDFA special teamer to starting middle linebacker. Even better guy in the community, he will be missed in D-town. Absolutely wish the guy the best.
