Damien Michael Woody (born November 3, 1977 in Beaverdam, Virginia) is an American football offensive lineman for the New York Jets of the National Football League. He has played every position on the offensive line except left tackle; he was originally drafted as a center by the New England Patriots in the first round, 17th overall in the 1999 NFL Draft. He played college football at Boston College.

A Pro Bowl selection in 2002, Woody won two Super Bowl rings with the Patriots. He has also played for the Detroit Lions.


Early years

He went to Patrick Henry High School in Ashland, Va., where he teamed with Erron Kinney and helped the Patrick Henry Patriots to the 1994 State Football Championship.

Professional career

New England Patriots

The Patriots selected him 17th overall in the first round of the 1999 draft. Woody would go on to start 76 games with the Patriots, mostly at center.

As the anchor of a tough and effective New England offensive line, Woody was a member of two Super-Bowl-winning teams, in 2001 and 2003. He did not play in Super Bowl XXXVIII against the Carolina Panthers because of a knee injury.

Detroit Lions

Woody signed as a free agent with the Detroit Lions in March 2004 and started every game in the 2004 and 2005 seasons before missing most of 2006 on injured reserve. His play earned him a selection as a Pro Bowl alternate in 2004.

New York Jets

On March 2, 2008, Woody and the Jets agreed to a five-year, $25 million contract with $11 million in guaranteed money.[1] The move reunited Woody with a former Patriots assistant and now former Jets head coach Eric Mangini.


He and his wife, Nicole, have four daughters, Kamille, Jalynn, Alexandra and Dominique.
