Goodbye, Wesley Woodyard.

Woodyard is a special player in Denver Broncos history.

Sure, his stay in the Mile High City may have come to an unceremonious end when he was benched during the 2013 season and the allowed to leave via free agency, but Woodyard was always a leader.

In fact, he’s the only Broncos player — besides Hall of Famer Floyd Little — to be named a captain his first six years with the team. That says something not only about his work ethic, but his ability to lead men and be a role model both on and off the field.

Woodyard, more a fit at outside linebacker, even make the most difficult move to middle linebacker to help his team last season; results were mixed, but the effort was always there by “Wood.”

Now, “The Lumberjack” moves onto Tennessee to play with the Titans.

His deal is reportedly worth $16 million over four years.

Good luck, Wood!
