As expected, the Oakland Raiders will be parting ways with defensive end LaMarr Woodley at some point next week, according to Fallon Smith of CSN Bay Area.
Woodley, who signed a two-year deal reportedly worth up to $12 million last offseason after he was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers, registered five tackles in six games with the Raiders in 2014 before suffering torn biceps.
Woodley has missed a total of 24 games over the course of the last four seasons. Because of that, the former second-round draft pick will more than likely have to play for the league minimum in 2015 if he wants to continue his career.
Depending on what kind of shape Woodley currently is in, the Steelers might could consider bringing him back for the minimum for one season and especially if they lose Jason Worilds in free agency.
Regardless of where Woodley plays next season, he will count $8.58 million in dead money against the Steelers salary cap in 2015 because of him being designated a post June 1 release last year.
