Woodyard departs town after visit

Free-agent linebacker Wesley Woodyard departed town after meeting with the Patriots on Wednesday and shared his thoughts on the day with ESPN's Josina Anderson.

"The visit with the Patriots went great," Woodyard told Anderson. "I got to sit down with the coaches. I talked to [Bill] Belichick too. He told me how he sees my role with the team. I respect him a lot."

Woodyard, who visited along with Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell and Cardinals defensive end/outside linebacker Matt Shaughnessy, is now set to travel to Tennessee for a visit with the Titans.
