Safety Charles Woodson signed up for another year with the Raiders and he’s hoping that 2015 will be the year that the Raiders end their long playoff drought.
While at an event for his wine company in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Woodson told Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com that he wants to be a part of the first Raiders team to advance to the postseason since Woodson helped the team to Super Bowl XXXVII and that they “hopefully make some noise when we get in there.”
While the Raiders added some good young pieces in 2014, getting that done will take more talent on the roster. Defensive end Justin Tuck has already made it clear that he’d like to see Lions defensive tackle and impending free agent Ndamukong Suh provide some of that talent and Woodson shares his teammate’s view.
“I don’t think there’s a team in the NFL that wouldn’t want to see Ndamukong Suh on their team,” Woodson said. “I know I would be no different. That guy is one of the best, overall, period in the NFL. Would I like him on our team? Believe it.”
The Raiders have the cap space to make a serious play for Suh if he hits the open market, although Lions president Tom Lewand recently expressed confidence that the team could strike a deal to keep that from happening.
