With the emergence of Jason Worilds, Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley is willing to switch sides if it will help their defense. He played on the left and right side while at Michigan.
“Maybe we’ll give it a shot,” said Woodley, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “It doesn’t mater to me what side I’m on. My whole college career was flip-flopping. That’s what I got used to until I got here, it was just right and left. I never had a problem with flip-flopping at all.”
“It doesn’t matter to me, I can adjust, I can play both sides,” Woodley said. “If Jason Worilds wants to get some rushes on the left, I have no problem with doing that at all. Whatever he and team feels like is best, I’m up for it.”
Woodley believes the left side is harder to play on.
“The quarterback is looking at you, even though they say the best tackle is on the left side. When you have that quarterback looking at you, it’s hard to make rush moves from the left side. I think the left side is tougher.”
