    Steelers will release LaMarr Woodley

    Woodley, the highest-paid defensive player in Steelers history, will be designated as a post-June 1 salary cap casualty and will be available to sign with another team starting at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday, according to the source.

    A seven-year veteran, Woodley was scheduled to make $8 million this season, which would have been the fourth year of a six-year, $61.5 million deal signed before the 2011 season.

    The 29-year-old Woodley was a productive pass rusher during a four-year stretch from 2008 to 2011 but struggled in recent years and lost his usual starting position of left outside linebacker to Jason Worilds, moving to the right side this past season
