Damien Woody On His Way Out

Offensive lineman Damien Woody, who was out most of the season with an injury, may be out for good with the Lions.  Speculation has been increasing regarding many players being cut in the near future, but Pro Football Talk has now discussed Woody specifically.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that the Detroit Lions very soon will be cutting center Damien Woody.

Woody jumped to the Lions from the Patriots in 2004, signing a six-year, $31 million contract with a $9 million signing bonus.  His salary is scheduled to jump from $1.75 million in 2006 to $4.5 million in 2007.

He played 16 games in 2004 and 16 games in 2005, but was injured in the fifth game of the 2006 season and did not return.


More on this situation and others regarding roster moves as the offseason continues.
