Titans signed NT Al Woods, formerly of the Steelers, to a two-year, $5 million contract.

Scratch those scheduled visits to Green Bay and Arizona. Woods can play some defensive end, but will ideally be a run-stuffer up the gut in Ray Horton's hybrid 3-4 scheme. The 2010 four-rounder should be fresh after playing just 223 snaps with the Steelers last year.

Steelers NT/DE Al Woods has been taking reps with the second-team in OTAs.

The Steelers invested a fourth-round pick in Alameda Ta'amu a year ago with the hope he would start, or at least be part of a rotation at nose tackle. Instead, the team has already named Steve McLendon their starter, while moving Woods to second on the depth chart. Woods also has the versatility to play defensive end in Pittsburgh's 3-4 scheme. Ta'amu is on notice.

Saints waived DT Al Woods, OG Brandon Carter, LB Harry Coleman, OL Na'Shan Goddard, and OL Jermey Parnell.

Saints selected LSU DT Al Woods with the No. 123 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Though Woods draws high marks for his physical skill set, he was a big-time underachiever throughout college as a former top-20 overall recruit. These players usually go on to become first-day draft picks. Woods (6'4/311), however, was just a one-year starter, finishing his career with only three sacks and seven tackles for loss. He remains a major project.
