He's been the target of an anonymous teammates saying he didn't work hard enough last season, but linebacker Lamarr Woodley isn't going down without a fight. Woodley is the unquestioned leader of the linebacker corps now that James Harrison has moved on. He knows there is a lot of attention on him and how he will rebound in 2013. Woodley has a big job to do upholding the Steelers rich linebacker tradition and is working hard to be ready, something he was accused last year of not doing. According to Dan Gigler of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Woodley wants to get back to his old form and avoid injuries that have hampered him the past two years. "My offseason is going great. I'm looking forward to getting back with the team in a few weeks," Woodley said. "I've been training since the middle of February. ... It was a disappointing season being 8-8 and not making the playoffs. It was disappointing at the end of the day." "My thing was during the season when I hurt my ankle, I said that I wanted to come back stronger next year. Some injuries you can't predict or avoid, but, during the season, I said this offseason I'd be determined to get after it."
