The Green Bay Packers would seem like an odd landing point for free agent Nnamdi Asomugha, as cornerback is not a position of need for the defending champions.
But Charles Woodson likes the idea of having Asomugha as a teammate so much that he told ESPNMilwaukee.com he’d move to safety to make it happen.
“If I talked to [defensive coordinator Dom Capers] and he thought that was the best thing for us to win another championship I would do it,” Woodson said. “This thing is about winning. If this would have been my fifth year in the league I probably would have told you hell no but at this point if that was going to get me another championship why wouldn’t I?”
Woodson and Asomugha were teammates in Oakland and remain friends, but Woodson said it’s not his place to encourage Asomugha to come to Green Bay.
“I’m not doing any recruiting,” Woodson said. “We’ve texted a few times about winning a Super Bowl. Nothing really about his future I don’t know what’s going on about him and Oakland or anything else.”
Woodson also discussed the broken collarbone he suffered in the Super Bowl, saying he expects it to heal without surgery in 6-8 weeks. And he said he believes that he’d be a Pro Football Hall of Famer if he retires today.
“If I’m not, tell me what I’ve got to do and my track record says I get it done,” Woodson said. “So that’s the way I look at it.”
