Charles Woodson is free to sign with any NFL team after getting released from the Packers on Feb. 15. He’s already drawing a lot of interest on the open market.
The Seahawks, Dolphins, Jets and Giants have all called to discuss Woodson, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN.com. Woodson moved from cornerback to safety in 2012, his 15th season in the league. The eight-time Pro Bowler and seven-time All-Pro sat out half the season with a broken collarbone.
Teams could be looking at Woodson as a potential slot cornerback. He played 61 snaps in that role, according to Pro Football Focus. He allowed five receptions on 10 targets for 83 yards.
Woodson was drafted by the Raiders with the No. 5 overall pick in 1998 out of Michigan. He played with the Packers form 2006 to 2012.

From the time BJ Raji was drafted in 2009, I’ve taken a special interest in this player. Maybe because he’s from a local town here in NJ, maybe because I was hoping he would be one of the linchpins for Dom Caper’s new 3-4 defense – the next “Gravedigger.”
I wrote a profile on Raji back in May of 2009, and later talked to some people who saw him in his HS playing...
Jermicheal Finley’s agent Blake Baratz did some damage control to keep his client comfy in Green Bay.
Baratz reversed Finley’s comments that he wouldn’t accept a pay cut, stating that he is open to working with the Packers front office.
“I would never just turn my nose up at anything. I will listen and hear anybody about anything and withhold judgment until I do.
As we continue the Team Needs series for the 2013 NFL Draft, we proceed to the team with the twenty-sixth overall pick; the Green Bay Packers. It was just another double digit victory season and another division crown for the Pack. Unfortunately, the beating they took in the second round of the postseason is all that anyone will remember of their 2012 campaign.
Aaron Rodgers once...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's been 46 years since Jim Taylor last stepped on the field in a Green Bay Packers uniform. Though the legendary and bruising fullback is far removed from plowing over oncoming defenders on game days, the 77-year-old is still running strong.
He was participating in full marathons in his 50s and golfing in charity events almost nonstop. Taylor was engaged...
If there is one thing no team in the NFL can never have enough of, it’s pass rushers and the Green Bay Packers are no exception. Outside of Clay Matthews, the team lacks a dominant pass rusher and now that former Packer defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins is back on the market, it could be a great opportunity for the team to add some much-needed juice to its interior pass rush.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers have hired Alonzo Dotson, nephew of former Green Bay defensive end Santana Dotson, as a college scout.
Dotson had been working for the University of Houston the past two seasons with defensive quality control. He was previously an assistant coach at Madison High School in Houston.
Dotson played three seasons as a defensive end at the University of...

It is still too early for fans to hear the mention of the Denver Broncos and their secondary without receiving a seething response. A simple mention of Denver’s cornerbacks or safeties opens up a AFC Division Playoff loss wound that has just started healing.
Enter: Darrelle Revis...
Quarterbacks around the NFL had to be looking in at the deal that Baltimore Ravens signal caller Joe Flacco received, none more that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers, a reigning Super Bowl MVP himself, and arguably the best quarterback in the NFL currently, is winding down his current contract. He is currently inked through 2014, but the Packers should seriously...
After winning the Super Bowl two years ago, the Green Bay Packers have failed to return to the NFC Championship game since.
There are a number of reasons the Packers have fallen short, however, the 2013 NFL Draft is loaded with players who can go a long way in fixing Green Bay’s issues in a short amount of time.
Here are five players available in this year’s NFL Draft who the...
The ink has barely dried on the record breaking contract that Joe Flacco signed on Monday with the Baltimore Ravens and there is already talk about how this deal will affect the contract Aaron Rodgers eventually signs with the Green Bay Packers.
After a sluggish regular season, Flacco showed he is well worth the 6-year $120 million contract he was rewarded with earlier this week...
