NFL Free Agency: Charles Woodson to Visit Denver Broncos

Free agent cornerback Charles Woodson is, for some reason, still without a team.

The veteran and former Raiders draft pick says he just wants to play for anyone:

“When this process first started out, that was my thing — I needed to go to a contender,” Woodson told CSNBayArea. “I know I am towards the end of my career. At this point, I want to play football. So if it is a rebuilding stage, at this point if that is the circumstances I have to play under, then that is what I am going to do.”

One intrigue could be a possible return to Oakland, or at the very least, to the AFC West. Vic Lombardi of CBS 4 in Denver reports that Woodson is slated to visit the Denver Broncos this week.

A 14-year veteran, Woodson was drafted by the Raiders and spent eight seasons in Oakland before moving on to Green Bay. He was the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1998.He has received numerous accolades throughout his career as an eight-time Pro Bowler, seven-time All-Pro member, and Super Bowl champion. Woodson was also the AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2009.Woodson’s productivity has declined in recent seasons, however. He appeared in just seven games last, recording 25 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one interception.

Woodson was released by the Packers earlier this offseason.
