Woodyard leaves Broncos for deal with Titans

KUSA - Wesley Woodyard is leaving Denver for a four-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, the team announced Friday morning.

The linebacker spent the past six seasons with the Broncos, joining the team as an undrafted free agents in 2008. He had 402 tackles, five interceptions and forced six fumbles with Denver.

"Wesley is a player who has experience playing in both 3-4 and 4-3 systems and in our new scheme he fits as one of the inside linebackers," Titans general manager Ruston Webster said on the team's website. "He is smart and fast. He also brings the leadership qualities and intangible that we look for in a player, which makes him a good fit for us."

His best season was 2012 with three interceptions and 114 tackles as an outside linebacker.

He was named the team's Walter Payton Man of the Year for the 2013 season. Woodyard was born in Georgia and played college ball at Kentucky, where he was all-SEC as a junior and senior.
