THIS IS EPISODE 188 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Wesley Woodyard plays linebacker for the Tennessee Titans. He was originally undrafted in 2008 coming out of Kentucky, where he was first-team All-SEC in 2006 and 2007.
In 2008, he signed with the Denver Broncos, where he played five seasons and helped Denver to a Super Bowl berth in 2013. In 2014, he signed with Tennessee and is now in his fifth season in Nashville.
Woodyard has helped the Titans to a 5-4 start, and he had 20 combined tackles and 2.5 sacks in wins over Dallas on Monday Night Football and New England.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Woodyard about the Titans’ recent success, playing through injuries, what faith looks like in the Tennessee locker room, how his faith has evolved since getting to the NFL, leading the team’s chapel for the first time, and his biggest spiritual challenge this season.
