Patriots outside linebacker and restricted free agent Pierre Woods has signed a one-year deal to remain with the team, according to a Boston.com report. Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2006, the Michigan product has become a dependable backup and special teams stalwart in his four seasons with New England. In 2009, he played in all 16 games and set a career high with five starts at outside linebacker. In addition, he led the team in special teams tackles with 18. With the Woods signing, that leaves the Patriots with one restricted free agent remaining, offensive lineman Logan Mankins. For more Patriots news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

"I think if you’re going to go to the letter of law you kind of knew how it was going to go, but I think if you really want to stop fights, you’ve got to suspend the agitators, too."
