When NFL teams passed on LaMarr Woodley in the NFL draft, I knew they would end up regretting it.  

If you remember, LaMarr was a second round pick and the 46th pick overall in 2007 draft to the Pittsburgh Steelers.  In his short NFL Career, LaMar has had 136 tackles, 29 sacks, and 1 interception.

USA Today says don't be surprised if LaMarr is the highest paid defensive player next year.   

LaMarr is on a list with a number of other young stars in the NFL.  Congratulations to Wood and I hope he gets that big check!

  • RIP to Bob Probert.  Sad to see a guy pass at 45. 
  • Mike Hart is ready for new NFL Season with the Colts :  "I'm always happy and this is probably the healthiest I've been since I've been on this team," he said.  "I'll be fighting for a position on this team, just like always."  Head Coach, Jim Caldwell weighs in on Mike:  "He's a guy who has a real solid football instinct about him," coach Jim Caldwell said. "He has a knack for understanding how the game should be played. He's got a great knack in terms of his vision and ability. He knows himself. He's obviously a guy who has great passion for what he does."
