According to NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora, the Steelers have placed the franchise tag on LB LaMarr Woodley.
The move was widely expected, and Woodley has said he’s OK with the transcation. Usually, if the Steelers tag you, it means a long-term contract is eventually forthcoming (perhaps that’s why Woodley seems cool about everything).

After New York’s David Harris and Kansas City’s Tamba Hali, Woodley is the third LB to be tagged this offseason. Their franchise-tagged LB salaries for the 2011 season will be $10.19 million.
