Charles Woodson paid a visit to the Broncos on Wednesday, meeting the team’s coaches and executives to discuss the possibility of coming aboard for the 2013 season.
The details of the conversations remain unknown, but we do know that Woodson left the team’s headquarters without signing a contract. That doesn’t mean the sides won’t keep talking or that there wasn’t discussion of a deal, but, for now, Woodson remains a free agent. Woodson is believed to have a contract offer from the Raiders already in his pocket as well as interest from the Panthers as he looks to end his longer than expected stay on the market after his release from the Packers.
Mike Klis of the Denver Post believes that the Broncos are “likely” the favorites to land Woodson’s services because they are a better bet to contend for the Super Bowl than either Oakland or Carolina. Given Woodson’s early preference to play for a contender, it’s pretty hard to argue with that view of things without having any idea of what kind of money teams are putting on the table.
Per Klis, the Broncos view Woodson as a “much-needed ballhawk” on a team that had 13 interceptions last season. That probably doesn’t mean a starting role, but it would likely mean plenty of work for Woodson in various roles supporting Denver’s starting defensive backs.
