Charles Woodson could soon be an Oakland Raider.
The 36-year-old defensive back has been invited to meet with the team this Tuesday. Woodson’s meeting with the Raiders comes shortly after a meeting with the Denver Broncos.
The 2009 NFL Defensive Player of the Year left Denver without a contract but he’s still determined to find a team for next season. If he doesn’t get an offer from the Raiders he still has hope of finding a job with the Carolina Panthers or the New York Giants.
Woodson, a three-time All Pro Safety, said that he has no plans on retiring. His agent, Carl Poston, said: “Woodson still can do it on the field.”
Poston added that Woodson isn’t looking to be a de facto assistant coach to help rookies improve their game. The 36-year-old is planning on playing next year.
Woodson started his career in Oakland back in 1998. He spent 8 years with the Raiders before leaving for Green Bay in 2005.
Woodson is one of many All-Pro players looking for a home. Brian Urlacher was recently let go by the Chicago Bears and is currently looking for a new team. The linebacker is reportedly close to signing a deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
Per Carl Poston: Charles Woodson does not plan on retiring. Poston says he’ll play somewhere. Woodson appears frustrated by the system.
