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 are looking for younger players and trying to make their rosters younger,” Woodson said on NFL AM. “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.”
Woodson and his representatives have indicated to teams that he wants to play and is available. That same interest in Charles isn’t being returned.
“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.

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...
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...

The Green Bay Packers accumulated 31 interceptions in 2011, but something went horribly wrong in 2012 only snatching up 18 picks. Aaron Rodgers has the Packers offense clicking on all cylinders, but to make it to the Super Bowl they must address the defense for the future.
