Selected as a center by the Patriots with the No. 17 overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, Woody started all 16 regular season games as a rookie and was part of two Super Bowl winning teams (2001 and 2003). He also earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2002.

Woody moved to guard, and then tackle later in his career. He signed with the Lions in 2004 before returning to the AFC East as a member of the rival Jets, a squad he helped lead to the 2009 AFC Championship game.

As a player, Woody participated in the NFL’s Broadcast Boot Camp in 2009. Upon announcing his retirement from pro football in August of 2011, he immediately made the transition to ESPN television analyst.

A native of Beaverdam, Va., Woody was an All-American and an All-Big East offensive lineman at Boston College. As a prep, he helped lead Patrick Henry High School in Ashland, Va., to the 1994 State Championship.

In 2014, Woody was a participant on NBC’s The Biggest Loser: Glory Days. During the reality show’s six-month competition, he lost 107 pounds.

Woody currently lives in New Jersey with his wife, Nicole, and their children.
