Tom Brady may not get his new deal before the season starts, but one of his old college teammates at Michigan is about to get paid.
Josina Anderson of FOX31 in Denver reports that cornerback Charles Woodson and the Packers reached agreement on a contract extension. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has confirmed the report, saying it will be finalized in “a day or so.”
The reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Woodson was slated to make $7.4 million this season. The move is a bit surprising because he had three years left on his contract, but the Packers decided to give him a bump in salary after Darrelle Revis’ deal was finalized.
UPDATE: ESPN’s Adam Schefter adds that it’s a two-year extension.
