It sounds like LaMarr Woodley will be doing a tour of duty with Pittsburgh West as the recently released 30-year old is slated to sign with Arizona Cardinals, according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1.
From @PSchrags and me: LB LaMarr Woodley expected to sign with the Cardinals. Put down the pitchforks here. He was released. It's allowed.

Woodley, who played the first seven years of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers after being drafted by them in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of Michigan, was released by the Oakland Raiders last week.
Woodley, who had signed a two-year contract with Raiders last offseason following his March release from the Steelers, only managed to play in six games with the Raiders as his season came to an end early as a result of a torn biceps.
While the Cardinals certainly need help out the outside linebacker position, one would think that they won’t be paying Woodley much based on his recent injury history. Over the course of the last four seasons, Woodley has missed a total of 24 regular season games.
Update: Woodley signed a one-year deal and the Cardinals listed him on Twitter as being 265 pounds. lol
