After pretty much sitting around with his thumb firmly lodged in his ass since the Green Bay Packers released him in February, Charles Woodson may finally be getting a new team.
Woodson has received an offer from the Oakland Raiders, the team that drafted him, according to his agent. He’s also reportedly visiting the Denver Broncos today.
The Broncos could probably use a guy who plays safety and doesn’t get desperation heaves thrown over his head in playoff games. And the Raiders, well, they could anyone with a warm body. The Carolina Panthers may also be interested.
However, if the Broncos make an offer, you can bet Woodson will jump at that. Of the three teams, Denver is the only one who can be considered a contender and that’s the kind of team Woodson said he wanted to play for.
That is, at least until no one offered him a deal for over three months.
If there’s no Denver offer, the Raiders make a lot of sense. There’s the Reggie McKenzie connection and Woodson owns a vineyard not too far from Oakland. There are probably worse places to finish your career. Like, say, Minnesota.
We are deep at the CB position.
I think Davon House is going to be a very good CB in this league.
I also think Woodson has 1 more decent season left in him.
But we can’t afford him.
His leadership alone would be a good thing…
Felt the same way about Chad Clifton 2 years ago.
Also, we are only 3-deep at the safety position.
Burnett, Jennings, McMillan, Richardson and some dude named Powell (also, potentially, Micah Hyde). So, technically, 4 deep (unless you divide SS and FS).
Agree with you on House, but only if he can find a way to stay healthy, and, as to this point in his career that’s a big if.
“Stay Healthy” is my least favorite saying refering to football. (But i know what you mean).
Noone does anything to make themselves unhealthy…if they get an injury, its just bad luck about 90% of the time.
No. No. No. No. No. No. No.
To say the Raiders suck would be to insult the word suck.
AFC is a good place for him though.
good luck, Chuck……..
I highly doubt he would play for Oakland for the reason his vineyard would be close by lol
I wish him luck wherever he lands. I wish it could be in our division. Love me some Woodson, but, the dude is a ticking holding penalty. Why? Because he can’t run anymore. Aaron FUCKING Rodgers would eat him alive in his current state.
True, but Woodson would mow down on Smith and Rivers, maybe even Flynny-boy.
What would the WoodChuck Chuck if the WoodChuck was ChuckWood & could destroy a motherfucker comin soft across the middle?!?
He’d blow the motherfucker up, strip his ass, recover it, and run it in for 6.
Four years ago…
But what you wrote was beautiful.
Thanks, ‘Twas an ode to the old Charles, here’s to hopin’ he retires a Packer
