    LaMarr Woodley signs, gets huge raise

    [HIGH-LIGHT]Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley officially signed his franchise tender Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Although the future of the tag is uncertain, Woodley is due a huge pay raise of approximately $10.2 million in 2011 compared to the $550,000 he made last season.[/HIGH-LIGHT]

    The Steelers will continue to try and work out a long-term extension with Woodley. Because Woodley is a former second-round pick who didn't make a large salary, neither side could do much because of the 30-percent rule under the current collective bargaining agreement. A new CBA will provide an opportunity for both sides to resume negotiations.

    Woodley is one of three AFC North players to receive the franchise tag this offseason. The others are Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl defensive lineman Haloti Ngata and Cleveland Browns kicker Phil Dawson.
