Charles Woodson’s visit with the Broncos didn’t result in a contract, leaving him free to visit another AFC West team next week.
It’s one he is very familiar with. Woodson spent eight years with the Raiders after they made him the fourth overall pick of the 1998 draft and will be back in Oakland to talk to the team about a reunion.
“The Raiders have invited Charles in for a visit. As of right now the plan is for him to fly in Tuesday. We are still waiting for their official schedule at this time,” Woodson’s agent Carl Poston told Josina Anderson of ESPN.
Poston’s already revealed that the Raiders have made an initial offer for Woodson’s services, although it wasn’t a strong enough one to stop Woodson from looking elsewhere for a job. The Raiders would probably offer Woodson as much playing time as any team that might be thinking about adding him to their roster, but the chances of contending for a Super Bowl would be a lot higher in Denver.
That’s assuming the Broncos make Woodson an offer, of course. If not, Woodson might wind up repurposing an old phrase by saying “If you can’t join ’em, try to beat ’em.”
