Free agent cornerback Charles Woodson now has two offers on the table that we know of: the Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Woodson has an offer from Denver, and will visit with Oakland next week.
According to his agent, Woodson does not plan on retiring and will be playing somewhere next season. However, he is frustrated by the process and presumably why it has taken so long for teams to show interest in him.
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.
So it comes down to the Raiders and Broncos, two division rivals fighting for one player. Woodson has a very difficult choice to make: join a rebuilding franchise where he got his start over a decade ago, or sign with a Super Bowl contender and go out on top.
Which will it be? Answer the poll and comment below.
