NFL Trade Rumors:

Clayton adds that Woodson could be a contingency plan for the if Ed Reed leaves for another team like New England or the Colts. Woodson’s agent mentioned that he would like to play for a Super Bowl contender next year and franchise have maintain prolonged success.
Ed Werder tossed out the Broncos earlier the week as another speculative option for Woodson, while ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas believes the Buccaneers and Saints could both have interest depending on how things play out regarding their own players.

Woodson looks like he has some football left in him. You have to...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Respected veteran players like Charles Woodson can have an impact on NFL teams, even if it's not with their on-field production. It's impossible to quantify the value that it adds, but many players believe it to be true and sometimes that is more than half the battle while the collective group physically and mentally grinds through a challenging season.
