Charles Woodson hasn’t gotten a lot of action since he was released by the Green Bay Packers, but it sounds like that’s about to change. Four teams are reportedly interested in Woodson.
According to Josina Anderson, those teams are the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. Only one of those teams — Seattle — would fit Woodson’s criteria of being a Super Bowl contender.
Although they may have Super Bowl talent, the Giants have been cutting guys left and right since the season ended. The Jets are a disaster — not to mention a circus — without a clear-cut starting quarterback and the Dolphins are young and probably a year or two away from being a legit playoff team.
So Woodson will probably go to Seattle, right? Not if he envisions himself having a major role in 2013.
The Hawks are loaded at corner with Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner and they also have two quality safeties in Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. Does Charles want to be a nickel back? We doubt it.
There’s a case to be made for the Giants, who’ve had a pattern in recent years of following a bad year with a really good year.
The Dolphins are the dark horse here. Former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin is their head coach, so there’s already some familiarity, and there are definitely worse things than finishing your career in Miami.
We’re not going to rule out our previously stated favorite for Woodson’s services — the New England Patriots — just yet either. There’s no indication Woodson is in any hurry to make a decision, so there’s still time for more teams to get involved.
Giants won 2 Super bowls in recent years, so I think that qualifies them as a “contender”…more so than our beloved Packers. They still have a better roster than we do overall because they’re built for the playoffs–do we need more beat downs by them as evidence? They went 9-7 last year because their players clearly did not play with the same urgency and heart that won them two titles in recent memory. They underachieved but they are better, roster wise, than us. We do have the better, lowered paid QB though.
I also agree that the Giants are clearly a contender, though I disagree that their roster is better than the Packers or that they are “built for the playoffs” whatever that is supposed to mean.
I have a hard time seeing Woodson on a contender. I think his best bet is a rebuilding team that could use his leadership.
The Seahawks are likely to pick him up.
Fuck all that. resign here for a club friendly contract.
Well, Vijay and Iltarion are idiots and should probably be beaten with heavy clubs and be left bleeding in the moonlight just before the Vikings swoop up and take them in as fans because they don’t have many.
It is going to be interesting to see how this settles out in terms of what team, what role, how much and how long.
Something tells me that CW still has some gas in the tank and now he has something to prove. But, with apologies to Dennis Miller, that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.
Will this be one of those deals where at the end of the season we find TT changing the shit-stained sheets on his bed, or do we find him lighting a big stogie using a $100 bill taken from the pile of them he saved by letting CW walk?
its simple fart scientry.
