New England Patriots Re-Sign Pierre Woods

Bleacher ReportSenior Analyst IMarch 26, 2008

 
Pierre has been a special-teams standout the last two years, leading the team with 21 tackles. Woods' big 6'5", 25o lb. frame is ideal for the Patriots 3-4 system.
 
While Pierre has only played sparingly on defense, recording four tackles, Bill Belichick hopes Woods can follow in the footsteps of former Patriot Tully Banta-Cain, who played sparingly in his first couple of years after being a 7th round pick in 2003. He later became a pass-rush OLB, totaling 5.5 sacks in 2006, and signed a FA contract with the 49'ers last season.
