Raiders Sign DB Charles Woodson; What It Means For Him And Oakland

The Oakland Raiders have signed former Packers cornerback Charles Woodson, according to Adam Schefter.

Woodson will provide a veteran presence on a team that has no established leader. He is coming off a down year, but the Raiders have a lot less crowded secondary than Green Bay does.

Woodson, who finished with just 1 pick, looks to find his career again in Oakland, a city in which he has flourished in before. Although he had his glory days in Green Bay, Woodson’s roots remain in the Bay Area, and this could motivate him.

Fortunately for Charles Woodson, the Raiders don’t expect him to do much, as they signed him to a 1 year flier deal. At 36 years old, Woodson’s best days are certainly behind him. However, he could possibly have a last hurrah left in the tank.

He has been one of the best secondary talents in the league consistently, and posted league highs in interceptions as late as 2011 and 2009. Clearly, the guy has talent.

It will most likely be the final season of a future Hall of Fame cornerback, but that certainly is not to say that he can’t turn his career around.
