The Oakland Raiders have made an “initial offer” to free agent cornerback Charles Woodson, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN.
In an interview with the NFL Network (via CSN Bay Area), Woodson acknowledged that he would be willing to play for a rebuilding team, which is the current description of the Raiders’ franchise.
“When this process first started out, that was my thing — I needed to go to a contender,” Woodson said. “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.”
Woodson ruled out signing with the 49ers in the same interview, and seemed to be lowering himself in an effort to pique a team’s interest.
“Myself, I am just a ballplayer,” he said. “I need to be on a team.”
