Former LSU lineman Al Woods signs with Seahawks
Former LSU defensive lineman Al Woods signed with the Seattle Seahawks Friday, Woods’ agency, Sports Trust Advisors, announced on social media.
The Seahawks will make the seventh NFL team Woods has played for during his 10 years. The Seahawks wanted a run-stuffing defensive tackle, and Pete Carroll got his man in Woods.
Woods previously played with the Seahawks during the 2011 season. He last played for the Colts in 2018.
The Louisiana-native was originally drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Saints. New Orleans later released Woods the same year even after he signed a four-year contract. His best season came during the 2017 season with the Colts, where he made a combination of 44 tackles and one sack.
Woods finished his LSU career with 73 tackles, eight tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. He started all 13 games for the Tigers as a senior in 2009.
