In a move that shocked the NFL world, the Green Bay Packers cut their best defender, veteran Charles Woodson.Well -- Maybe it wasn't so shocking though.He was wildly overpaid during his time in Green Bay, and was due $10 million in 2013.At 36 years old, Woodson is no doubt a seasoned vet.He's suffered injury after injury, most recently a broken collarbone in 2012. Despite the history of injuries, Woodson can compete to start just about anywhere else.He might be one of the oldest defenders in the league, but don't doubt that C.W. will find a new home in no time.But where?

After what I expect to be a poor performance at the NFL Draft Combine, Manti Te’o will drop out of the 1st round. Also check out my list of NFL Mock [...]
