When the Green Bay Packers released Charles Woodson six weeks ago, sentiment around the league was that Woodson would not be unemployed for to long.
A month or so later and Woodson has still found no takers. Woodson though isn’t naive, and told NFL AM that he’s unemployed because he’s old.
“I’m 36, so of course I’m considered ancient in the game right now, and teams are looking for younger players and trying to make their rosters younger,” Woodson said on NFL AM. “If you’re an older guy they kind of push you to the side, and they’ll maybe look at you much later on down the road, when I guess they figure they can get you much cheaper.”
Woodson and his representatives have indicated to teams that he wants to play and is available. That same interest in Charles isn’t being returned.
“Nothing right now, nothing substantial. I’m just waiting around. We put feelers out, just to see where everybody’s at, but there’s not much right now,” Woodson said.
