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 Network. "We put feelers out and there isn't much right now. Just being patient. I went through this one time coming out of Oakland. I am in that same situation now. Just have to be a little patient. "I will land somewhere and help somebody win." Woodson was asked specifically about the possibility of signing with the Baltimore Ravens -- who recently lost veteran safety Ed Reed -- or about returning to Green Bay, but that also didn't seem promising. "I haven't heard anything from Baltimore, or really anyone else for that matter," Woodson said. "Until I hear something, I can't really even answer that question." Woodson visited the San Francisco 49ers earlier this offseason but didn't get a contract offer. "They let me get out of there, so that wasn't a good sign," Woodson said. Woodson was scheduled to make 10 million from the Packers for the 2013 season before the team released him on Feb. 15. Woodson missed the final nine games of the regular season after suffering a broken collarbone in Week 7. Though he returned for Green Bay's two postseason games, he didn't record any interceptions, sacks or forced fumbles. As he continues to wait for a team to show interest in signing him, roster spots and salary cap space are disappearing. "That just how it goes with older guys in the NFL," Woodson said. "I am 36 years old, so, of course, I am considered ancient in the game right now. If you are an older guy, they kind of push you to the side and maybe they will look at you later down the road and when they figure they can get you much cheaper than what you are asking for. "I don't worry too much about it right now." Woodson doesn't appear to be contemplating retirement whatsoever. After 16 NFL seasons, eight Pro Bowls, a Super Bowl ring and a Defensive Player of the Year award, Woodson still wants to show what he can do. "I am a football player," Woodson said. "I am not a corner, I am not a safety; I am just a guy that can play football. You can put me in anywhere on that field, in any situation, and I am going to get it done. I call myself Seasoning Salt:' You can put me in anything and I will make it better. "I am just waiting on an opportunity." Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
