The Assist: Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley Re-Ups For 6 Years [Photo]

Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley signed a six year, $61.5 million contract with the franchise. The deal makes him one of the highest-paid players at his position. Woodley wanted to be the first one to share the news with his fans so he set his alarm for 6:00 AM Friday morning and posted the following message on Facebook:

That’s a rarity these days, spending an entire career with one franchise.
