Oakland Raiders FS Charles Woodson definitely expects to play in 2014 and the Raiders have gone on record as saying they want him back. A reunion with the Green Bay Packers does not appear likely.
Huddle Up: Woodson, who will turn 38 in October, has a Bay Area winery and look for him to retire as Raider, possibly next offseason.

The Oakland Raiders agreed to terms with free-agent DB Charles Woodson (Packers) on a 1-year, $1.8 million contract Tuesday, May 21.
Huddle Up: Hope the Black Hole faithful saved their Woodson jerseys from his previous 8-year stint in Oakland after being selected fourth overall in the 1998 draft. Woodson, who has had 10 interceptions, 5.5 sacks and 8 forced fumbles/fumble recoveries over the past 3 seasons, also drew recent interest from the Broncos, Panthers, Giants and Lions but the Silver & Black needed him -- and likely offered him -- the most.

Free-agent DB Charles Woodson (Packers) said he is willing to sign with the Detroit Lions if he is comfortable with the salary.
Huddle Up: Add another suitor to the list for Woodson, who suddenly has gained quite a bit of leverage over the past week with the Broncos, Panthers, Raiders, Giants and now the Lions showing interest.

The New York Giants are interested in signing free-agent DB Charles Woodson (Packers), according to Woodson's agent, Carl Poston. The Giants would likely sign Woodson to the veteran's minimum if he passes a physical. The Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers and Oakland Raiders are also interested in his services. Woodson could play as a safety for New York, and he could also play corner, if needed.
Huddle Up: After 2 months of next to no action, the market suddenly is heating up for the 36-year-old Woodson, who visited Denver on Wednesday and also is planning a trip to Oakland.

Free-agent DB Charles Woodson (Packers) said he is not optimistic about signing with the San Francisco 49ers because the team has added FS Craig Dahl and FS Eric Reid this offseason. Woodson added that he's been surprised that he has not received more interest overall. "I am surprised because I don't think there's any question in anybody's mind whether or not I can play football," Woodson said. "So, my issue is, 'you know I can play football, why am I not on a team, why haven't I had more visits?' I'm kind of surprised by it."
Huddle Up: Woodson will be 37 this October and has missed a total of 10 games over the past 2 seasons -- 2 primary reasons why teams haven't been lighting up his agent's phone. However, Woodson is far from washed up, though and would inject immediate veteran leadership wherever he lands.

The Cleveland Browns likely will not show interest in free-agent DB Charles Woodson (Packers).
