Brand new Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson feels he has plenty left in the tank.
He knows that there are questions about his durability, his response: ‘collarbone’s fine.’
Woodson shrugs off the notion he’s more of a ‘veteran leader’ than a productive safety, something he intends to put on full display.
"I would have just retired if I thought I couldn't go out there and be the best player on the field," Woodson said, via Jerry McDonald of The Mercury News.
"That's how I feel."
"I think when guys watch me play, it raises the level of the other guys because of the way I play the game," Woodson said. "I'm going to bring that mindset, that mentality, the same as I always have, and have fun doing it."
