The Broncos offered Charles Woodson a chance to contend for a Super Bowl.
The Raiders offered Charles Woodson a chance to, well, probably not.
But the difference in the offers apparently wasn’t that large in terms of dollars.
Acording to a report by Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Denver’s one-year deal with “reachable incentives” was worth $3.7 million.
The Raiders brought the veteran defensive back home with a deal that included a base value of $1.8 million and was reportedly worth a “maximum” of $4.3 million.
Now, without seeing a copy of the Broncos’ proposal, it’s hard to know how “reachable” those incentives actually were, or whether they were less attainable than the ones the Raiders offered.
And unless someone in the Broncos offices just feels spurned by a division rival and wants to shame them, we probably never will.
But the move obviously shocked some Broncos.
“There’s no freaking way he’d want to go to Oakland,” cornerback Champ Bailey told 102.3 FM Tuesday.
Looks like the Broncos let another one get behind their secondary, which is part of the reason they wanted Woodson in the first place.
