Could Charles Woodson’s career finish where it started?
That’s a distinct possibility with Carl Poston, Woodson’s agent, telling Josina Anderson of ESPN that there’s an initial offer from the Raiders on the table for 2013. There’s no details on the size of the offer or of Woodson’s interest in said offer, although Woodson remaining unsigned is a pretty good indicator that it didn’t knock him off his feet.
In addition to confirming that his client was going to visit with the Broncos on Wednesday, Poston told Anderson that the Panthers had also been in contact to inquire about Woodson. It remains to be seen how this interest translate into offers, but the cold Woodson market certainly seems to be heating up all of a sudden.
The Raiders and Panthers both have bigger safety needs than the Broncos, but the Broncos look like they’ll be the best of the three teams in 2013. Woodson expressed a preference for playing with a contender early in free agency, although he backed off from that more recently.
One imagines the long indifference to his services caused him to reconsider. An offer from the Broncos could lead him to shift gears again.
