One day after re-signing linebacker Joe Mays, the Denver Broncos agreed to terms with fellow linebacker Wesley Woodyard on Monday, per ESPN‘s Josian Anderson.  The deal is a two year contract which will keep Woodyard in Denver through the 2014 season. All of Denver’s starting linebackers from last season are now under contract for the 2012 season.  In 2011, D.J. Williams started at “Will” (weak-side outside linebacker), Mays started at “Mike” (middle linebacker) and Von Miller was the “Sam” (strong-side outside linebacker).  Woodyard was a special teams captain and started in seven games early in the season while Williams was injured. A 6-0, 229 pound Kentucky graduate, Woodyard joined the Broncos in 2008 as an undrafted free agent.  Woodyard, 25, has been a Team Captain in Denver every season since he entered the league and had a career year in 2011 when he recorded 97 tackles and forced two fumbles. Woodyard is expected to have a rotational role on Denver’s 4-3 defense this season and he remains one of the team’s best special teams players.
