Mar 10 - 2:09 PM

TitanInsider's Terry McCormick reports re-signing free agent NT Al Woods is "one of the top priorities" for the Titans.

Woods brought nothing to the table as a pass rusher, but held up pretty well in run defense as a nine-game starter last season. Pro Football Focus credited him with nine stops. Woods stands 6'4/314 and turns 29 next month.

Titans NT Al Woods is week to week with a high-ankle sprain.

Woods will be sidelined "at least" a couple of weeks. He could be headed to injured reserve. Woods' absence means more snaps for Sammie Lee Hill.

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.

Free agent NT Al Woods will visit the Titans on Wednesday.

The 2010 fourth-rounder played 223 snaps last season. Woods could also play defensive end in DC Ray Horton's hybrid 3-4, though he's far more useful as a run stopper than pass rusher.

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.

Seahawks claimed DT Al Woods off waivers from the Buccaneers.

Bucs signed DT Al Woods from the Steelers' practice squad.

Woods was a talented underachiever at LSU before the Saints drafted him in the fourth round this past April. He'll add interior depth with rookie Brian Price out for the season.
Tue, Nov 2, 2010 08:05:00 PM

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

Woods was an ill-advised fourth-round pick in April. A career underachiever, he unsurprisingly made no impact in camp. Coleman was a safety at LSU, trying to convert to linebacker. The linemen were purely camp bodies.
Sun, Sep 5, 2010 01:33:00 AM

Saints signed fourth-round DT Al Woods to a four-year contract.

Familiar with Woods because he played in their backyard at LSU, the Saints traded up to grab him as a developmental project. He was an underachiever in college, so don't expect a rookie-year impact.
