Increased interest come to those who wait.
More than once this offseaosn, Charles Woodson has commented on the lack of interest in his services around the league since he was released by the Packers. Those complaints seemed justified since he had only met with the 49ers and they decided to move in a different direction by signing safety Craig Dahl and drafting another one in Eric Reid. Things have heated up of late, though.
Woodson has an offer from the Raiders, just visited with the Broncos and, now, his agent Carl Poston has thrown another name into the mix. Poston told Josina Anderson of ESPN that the Giants “have just put their toe in the water again” in regard to Woodson’s services. The Giants were one of the first teams mentioned as a landing spot for Woodson when he left Green Bay, but nothing developed there earlier in free agency.
The Giants lost safety Kenny Phillips earlier this offseason, but signed Ryan Mundy to go with Stevie Brown and Antrel Rolle in the three-safety packages that defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has been fond of running. While there would still likely be a role in various packages for Woodson, it probably wouldn’t be bigger than ones he could find elsewhere and it would be unlikely to pay much better either.
