Woods will be entering his sixth season in the NFL in 2014 but is still relatively young, currently just 25 years old.
Short on experience, Woods has played in just 39 games in his first five seasons, making a total of 38 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He received the most playing playing him of his career this past season, however, appearing in all 16 games for the Steelers while making 16 tackles and two sacks.
Coming from Pittsburgh, Woods also has experience in their 3-4 defensive system and could provide depth at the position should players like B.J. Raji, Ryan PIckett, Johnny Jolly and C.J. Wilson leave in free agency.
At 6-4 and 307 lbs., Woods is listed as a nose tackle but might have the versatility to be ability to play multiple positions along the defensive line.
Woods was a fourth round draft choice of the New Orleans Saints in 2010 but was cut before the start of the season. He latched on with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he spent the rest of his rookie year.
In 2011, Woods was cut by the Bucanners and then joined the Seattle Seahawks, playing in two games. He's been with the Steelers for the past three seasons.
