Pierre Woods continues to make strides

FOXBORO — On opening day last month, all five of the New England Patriots’ regular linebackers were at least 30 years old, and while it’s hard to find fault with the performance of Tedy Bruschi, Rosevelt Colvin, Junior Seau, Adalius Thomas and Mike Vrabel to this point, the time will come when their replacements will need to be found.

Pierre Woods is one of those potential replacements. One of many Patriot players who has gone from undrafted to contributor, the outside linebacker made the 53-man roster last year out of Michigan and played in 11 games, including all three playoff contests. Though he continues to play mostly on special teams, Woods continues to make strides. He was one of the Pats eight offseason award winners, a big deal in Foxboro.
