    Also, not a pass-rusher, but not the worst backup OLB in the world.

    Very good on ST as well.

    Welcome back. From everything I've read he's one of the real good locker room guys. The youngsters always seem to praise him.

    Woods is good depth and is a pretty good STer. I don't see what there isn't to like.

    Judging by what I assume will be the forthcoming responses in this thread, quite a bit.

    That said, Woods is a fine backup and special teamer.

    He is what he is. Good ST and depth with a possibility of adding more to the regular D in the future


    Hold on there Gaspar, let's not get carried away.:D

    Seriously, nothing wrong with a versatile backup and part time starter. these are the players that have made the pats over the years. let's add a stud and maybe a vet and see if we can finally turn this LB corps around.

    Eric Alexander? I think we can use that spot to develop someone with more potential.

    Depth is almost as important as quality starters. In this case, Woods has proven that he can be good depth and has knowledge of the system. For just over $1M, I don't see why not. Nobody's expecting him to be a difference maker (if they are, they should probably stop watching football) but this a good move and is a step in the right direction.

    No, He's the guy who recovered the fumble, was DOWN, and the referees refused to blow the whistle. Just like on the miraculous play from horseface jr to david Tyree.

    Actually, you didn't support your "No" by adding those details.

    dept at a position that suffer an injury all most every year is very good.

    I think he's good enough to be a difference maker at least once a season. Didn't he force the fumble that led to winning the Bills game in the opener last year?

    This is a good signing. And if he's good for the locker room, it could be worth a lot more than we think.

    Merriweather caused the fumble against the Bills.

    No surprise. The story on Woods remains the same as it has always been - short $ and good on special teams but if he is playing OLB then there are big issues.

    Goober Jr.'s miracle never happens if #58 doesn't let a little RB wrestle the ball out of his hands. Inexcusable !

    Kids learn from the age of 5 in Pop Warner to play until the whistle blows. That play defines what he has brought to this team. He belongs in some construction firm building decks at this point, he's a waste of a uniform and a roster spot.

    I know one guy who is happy about Pierre's contact, that would be one Ahmad Bradshaw............I'm sure he's still chuckling as we speak.

    Merriweather stopped him in his tracks but it was Woods who came in and stripped the ball out of his hands causing the fumble. Without Merriweather Woods wouldn't have gotten there but without Woods it would have been a tackle at the 30 with about 2 minutes left and the Bills in the lead.

    The Patriots re-signed a special teams/depth player. As a Jets fan, you're probably unfamiliar with the concept of "depth". You should probably look it up.

    I'm glad to see mostly positive comments in this thread. Woods is a strong contributor on special teams, a more valuable LB backup than the typical ST-first guy like Alexander, and a good teammate. Why wouldn't anybody be happy about about securing experienced depth?

    I like Woods as a special teamer, but I don't consider him to be as good as Izzo (who was making less), Whigham or Tatupu were over the years on special teams. Since he's not getting a cut in pay then he'll be making at least $1.5 mil once again this year ... but a year ago the Pats wouldn't pay Gaffney $2.5 per year and opted for Galloway at $1.75 instead.

    Yes this is 20-20 hindsight, but wouldn't it have made more sense to go ahead and pay the starter, and make up the difference if need be by spending $800k on the special team slot? I know that's assuming the budget is comparable to last year's budget, but what happened to the previous concept of filling in holes in free agency so you could enter the draft with the philosophy of going after the best player availabel rather than being trapped into a position where you are forced to reach for a need at a certain position?
