Linebacker is a bit tricky, given there are several types. There are run-stuffing thumpers, coverage savants, pass-rushers and jacks of all trades.
Regardless, there weren't many big names changing teams this year.
Brandon Spikes is an aforementioned thumper in the middle, and the Buffalo Bills made a great move when they snagged him on a one-year deal after the New England Patriots released him.
The best move at the position? That is a tough call, but let's roll with Lamarr Woodley.
The former Steeler was cut by Pittsburgh because of salary cap issues, and he took his talents west to the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Oakland Raiders had many areas to address in free agency, and Woodley was part of the massive overhaul on the defensive side. He signed a two-year, $12 million deal to team up with fellow newcomers Justin Tuck and Antonio Smith on that defensive front.
Woodley has been hampered by injury for a few years now, which is a big reason why the Steelers finally let him go and his new contract was relatively small. Despite those injuries, Woodley has been among the best 3-4 outside linebackers in recent years according to Pro Football Focus.
He just hasn't been on the field as much as his fans would like.
Signing Woodley brought more than just a good pas-rusher to Oakland. Aside from a quality player, the Raiders got a great mentor for incoming rookie linebacker, Khalil Mack.
