NFL Trade Rumors:
Free agent DB Charles Woodson joined NFL AM on Friday and discussed how things have gone since the Packers released him over a month ago.
“I’m 36, so of course I’m considered ancient in the game right now, and teams are looking for younger players and trying to make their rosters younger,” said Woodson. “If you’re an older guy they kind of push you to the side, and they’ll maybe look at you much later on down the road, when I guess they figure they can get you much cheaper.”
It seemed as though Woodson would find at least some interest from teams in need of safety help, but that really hasn’t been the case.
“Nothing right now, nothing substantial. I’m just waiting around. We put feelers out, just to see where everybody’s at, but there’s not much right now,” Woodson said.
Woodson graded out as an above average safety last season, according to Pro Football Focus’ ratings. It doesn’t seem that long ago that Woodson was the league’s defensive player of the year, but it’s eviden
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Seeing as Charles Woodson has no takers right now, and with the thought that he still has a few years left in the tank, should the Redskins kick the tires on him and put him at free safety? Woodson hasn’t garnered much attention in free agency, which to me is surprising. Maybe Woodson’s asking price is too much but that hasn’t been reported. “For the right price,” the Redskins...
Charles Woodson was once a perennial Pro Bowler with the Raiders and Packers, but now he can’t seem to find a job.
Why is such a highly decorated player not even drawing a sniff of interest from NFL teams? Woodson, who would be entering his 16th pro season, says his age is scaring clubs off.
“I’m 36, so of course I’m considered ancient in the game right now, and teams are...
Free agency hasn't exactly gone like Charles Woodson expected.
Nearly two months after being released by the Green Bay Packers, the 36-year-old defensive back is still without a team. It doesn't appear that interest in him around the league will be increasing anytime soon, either.
"Nothing substantial; I am just waiting around," Woodson said Friday morning on NFL...
2013 NFL Draft
Every draft season, I put together a last minute pre-draft post with some predictions and things I’ve heard. In both 2011 and 2012, there were a few gold nuggets in there that came to be; Derrick Sherrod, Randall Cobb, Casey Hayward, BJ Coleman, trade predictions, etc.
Rather than make you wait until just before the draft, this year I’m going to whet your appetite...
When the Green Bay Packers released Charles Woodson six weeks ago, sentiment around the league was that Woodson would not be unemployed for to long.
A month or so later and Woodson has still found no takers. Woodson though isn’t naive, and told NFL AM that he’s unemployed because he’s old.
“I’m 36, so of course I’m considered ancient in the game right now, and teams...
Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson doesn’t spend much in free agency, choosing to find his talent through cheaper channels such as the NFL Draft.
As teams battle each other to out bid for the ‘flavor of the month’ Thompson sits back and retains his own key players. It’s clear when you look at a team’s books if they are just giving money away without worrying...
Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews
Through free agency, Ted Thompson’s Green Bay Packers have been Ted Thompson’s Green Bay Packers. Deafeningly quiet.
But in the coming weeks, the Packers will look to lock up their two most important players—Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews.
According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers are closer to a deal with Matthews than they are...
ESPN's Adam Schefter discusses the future on Charles Woodson, who's still a man without a team.
Woodson was released from the Green Bay Packer due to salary cap issues, but many are banking on a return at a much lower base salary for the 36-year-old.

Boys II Men had a hit in the late '90s entitled "It's So hard To Say GoodBye To Yesterday". This song talks about a past relationship and trying to recapture the days of old. There are certain players, in the NFL, who would love to recapture that fire they used to have in their younger days. There is a lot of angst when you walk away from the game when you still...
