LaMarr Woodley signed a six year, $61.5 million contract yesterday, and to prove it he posted this picture to his Facebook page
with the following caption.
Wanted yall 2 hear it from me 1st- Drafted here… super bowl here.. will retire here!! now time to get u this 7th trophy!!!! thank u 2 the rooney family, my family, teammates, agent, and all of u!! P.S.-STEELER 4 LIFE!!!!!!
When I first saw the picture, I thought it was a little arrogant, but when I read the caption I realized that the guy is probably pretty happy that the team he loves to play for and has won with did right by him and wanted to share his joy. It has to be especially sweet since the Steelers have a history of rotating “system linebackers” who go on to make a lot of money somewhere else without the same results.
