Rather than playing for a Super Bowl contender in Denver, Charles Woodson is a Raider competing with a hideous team in ‘The Town’


The great Charles Woodson is again a member of the Oakland Raiders.

Either due to nostalgia or stinginess, Charles Woodson agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.8 million to rejoin the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday night.

Taken by Oakland out of the University of Michigan fourth overall in the 1998 draft, the 36-year-old Woodson also landed a $700,000 signing bonus from the Raiders.

Clipped by the Green Bay Packers in February, The Denver Post reports the Broncos offered the 6-foot-1, 202 pound Woodson an incentive-laden deal that could have netted the future Hall of Famer $3.7 million.

Hence, rather than taking a risk and playing for a Super Bowl contender, the eight-time Pro Bowler will compete for a hideous Oakland squad removed from a 4-12 finish in the AFC West.

Ideally fitting into the Broncos secondary and their coverage schemes, Woodson could have helped Denver advance to the next level as a strong safety or cornerback.

Instead of seeking another Vince Lombardi Trophy as a Bronco, Charles Woodson looks like a scared cheapskate in “The Town.”
