Now that Charles Woodson is back with the Raiders, the burning question that many have is: “Will he wear 24 as his jersey number?”
SHUT UP, THIS IS IMPORTANT. There are countless Raiders fans dusting off crumpled old No. 24 Woodson jerseys dug up from the doldrums of their closets or dressers (yours truly included). None of those people wants their newly relevant jersey being deemed worthless. Woodson surely doesn’t want a different number, either. So, what’s the hang-up?
As it currently stands, the person on the Raiders roster with the number is Tracy Porter, who signed with the team this offseason.
Woodson discussed this conundrum with the media on Wednesday:
Q: Speaking of those cornerbacks, you talk to Porter yet about that No. 24?
Woodson: No. We’ll definitely have to have that conversation though. We haven’t had it yet, but I don’t know…Raider Nation has me back, but I don’t if they’ll have me back without the 24 on my back.

I didn’t think he’d do it. I really didn’t. When the Green Bay Packers let him go, I thought Charles Woodson would come to his senses and retire. After all, he’d had a good run.
