Oakland Raiders Fans to Greet Charles Woodson During Visit

Former Oakland Raider cornerback Charles Woodson is a now free agent, and fans want him back in the Silver and Black.

In fact, they want him so badly that apparently several loyal fans plan to show up at Raiders headquarters on Tuesday, when Woodson is slated to visit with the team.

Fans took to Twitter and even started a Facebook page inviting people to show up and welcome Woodson.

The veteran cornerback has received offers from the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos, and there could be more teams interested in his services.

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 season, recording 25 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one interception.

Woodson was released by the Packers earlier this offseason and has had difficulty attracting any teams to sign him until now.

Will the Raiders fans force him to sign a contract before he leaves his visit?

According to former Raiders cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke, he very well could:

    Reggie, remember Ronnie Lott, Rod Woodson? They worked out rather well in the safety spot for the silver and black late in their respective careers. Charles and his experience would be a huge benefit to us, the rookie corner and to Tyvonne Branch.He would sure up the backfield and give the front seven confidence and a little more time and to get at the quarterback. He still has gas in his competitive tank. PLEASE do what it takes and sign him!
