I'd post this as a fan shot, but then maybe all of 10 people would see it, and this read gives a good picture of what kind of guy Woodley is.
He is signed through the 2010 season and almost certainly will be a long-term priority for the Steelers. Don't think that he didn't notice that the team gave Harrison a six-year, $51.175 million contract in April, including a $10 million signing bonus.
"The money will be there," Woodley said. "Money isn't the world, anyway. Ain't no price tag on winning. Winning and making history is something you can't buy. Me? I'm a guy who loves history. When I'm 60 or 70, I don't want to be remembered for the money I made. I want to be in the history books."

That one right there just really cements him as my favorite player. It seems too often these days that players are in it for the money primarily, and not the game. Of course he'll want to be paid fairly when it comes time for the Steelers to renegotiate with him, but it's great to see that he has a real passion for the game and to doing whatever it takes to get this team to the top.
The article itself also lists Woodley's favorite plays of the '08 season, and a nice memory of when he destroyed Phillip Rivers back in the regular season. All in all a good read.
Here's an insightful look at his numbers thus far.
