He'll be designated as a post-June 1 release, allowing the Steelers to spread out his $19.76 million in dead money over the next two seasons. The move clears $10.57 million in cap space. Woodley's release was a fait accompli after the Steelers re-signed OLB Jason Worilds. Woodley still has some juice left as a pass rusher, but has become increasingly injury prone, and will turn 30 in November. He'll draw interest as a situational pass rusher for 3-4 teams.

McClain turns 25 in July. The former top-eight overall draft pick spent 2013 out of football to finish his degree at Alabama and get his life back together. McClain could draw some interest as a camp tryout on a one-year, minimum-salary deal. In all likelihood, McClain's money ran out during his year "off."
