Report: Raiders make offer to DB Woodson

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, May 14th, 2013 at 1:25 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The agent for former Raiders cornerback Charles Woodson told ESPN that the Raiders have made an offer for the unrestricted free agent.
Woodson was released by the Green Bay Packers earlier this offseason after spending the past seven seasons in Green Bay. Current Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was with the Packers when Woodson was there from 2006-11.
The 49ers are the only team that Woodson has visited since his release. He is scheduled to meet with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, according to an NFL.com report.
Initially, Woodson said he only wanted to play for a team that had a realistic shot of competing for the Super Bowl. Last week, Woodson said he now is open to playing for any team as a result of not receiving much interest in free agency.
Woodson, 36, spent his first eight NFL seasons with the Raiders, where he earned four of his eight Pro Bowl selections and cemented his reputation as one of the league’s best cornerbacks.
He signed with the Packers in 2006 and helped them win a Super Bowl during his seven-year tenure. Along the way, he converted to free safety.
The ESPN report said Woodson’s agent mentioned the Raiders and Carolina Panthers as teams that recently inquired about Woodson’s interest in signing with those teams.

    “do you have a problem with a black man saying in order to cure our own condition we must reject all white culture?”

    The mere fact that you draw a line between black and white and continue to do so shows not only your own ignorance to racism but you are a huge contributor to the problem.

    If you want to be a solution for racial divide stop taking part in it.
    =============

    ok so one guy does have an issue with it. Why?

    i dont see so called whites lining up to embrace or take on afrikan culture, why should blacks do the reverse then?

    are you saying black people should not have an independant culture or identity? why?

    is having an independant identity or culture “racist’ as you put it? how?

    I dont know anything about any so called “racial divide’ therefore i would not claim to have any solution for it.

    No, doesn’t bother me at all.

    because special teams are a third of the game and DA has finally started to pay attention to it with all the LB and TE signed. Might as well get a stud returner to top it off.

    hmmm black people make up the overwhelming majority of prison population but only 12 % of the total population n the u.s

    It seems to me we need to cure our condition, does the same apply for so called whites?

    do so called whites have there own identity here and culture. i believe the do its called american

    why would so called whites need to be cured of their condition when they set dominant culture called amrican?

    I’m good with it. Other than a few highlights from Johnnie Lee and Jacoby, our return game has sucked for a long time. Be nice to have someone who at least once was very good and durable. If he and our doctors say he is good to go, then even at 29(?) roll the dice.

    White culture has definitely embraced black American culture thru hip hop, jazz, dance, etc.

    Wanting to “embrace an independent culture or identity” while deriding another is practically the definition of racism.

    U hate whites and white culture. not part of it. all of it. That’s racism.

    cribbs is a good move, why?

    he and ford are interchangeable parts. ford is more explosive, cribss has better hands both can play slot and both can return kicks

    one gets injured and we dont have major drop off

    i would like to see them both back to field kicks, and both on the field when we go 5 wide

    Raiders agreed to terms with WR/KR Josh Cribbs, formerly of the Browns.
    Jets GM John Idzik said just yesterday that Cribbs’ knee wasn’t yet up to snuff coming off meniscus surgery, but the Raiders decided they couldn’t wait to sign the return specialist. Going on 30, Cribbs has taken a number of thundering hits over the years, but remained one of the league’s best return men last season. Cribbs should see little, if any, time on offense. He’s surpassed 200 yards receiving only twice in his eight-year career.
    ……..

    hope he’s healthy…

    Let Greg Rosenthal know about this. He ranks each of our units as the worst or second worst in the league.

    He’d probably say we have the worst return unit as well cuz Cribbs is “washed up”. But if were to go to another team he’d say they got “a great addition with a productive, proven veteran”.

    being entertained by someone does not equal ‘embracing culture’

    so called black american culture has been used and usurped however. see elvis m&m john b and timberlake

    Missdick–ur such a convoluted idiot.

    It’s ok for u twist words and extrapolate meanings and make huge leaps of logic.

    But it’s not ok for us to take ur body of work and and make conclusions.

    As usual, u are a liar and have two sets of rules. One for blacks and one for whides.

    U have no shame.

    Only an idiot like u could so completely warp what I said.

    I said I don’t mind white racists calling me nig-ger lover cuz I know it makes them angry and I like to make them angry.

    It’s all context and u love to bend everything.

    I used to have a good black friend that I hung out with as a drinking buddy. Every time we saw each other, he would say “What up my nig-ga!”, and I would call him “Honkey”. It was our way of breaking down any barriers between us. By flipping it. We had a great time NOT caring about what anybody else thought.
    =============

    again with the n word?

    there have always been seperate rules for black people the rules were made by so called whites not me.

    You call a black man the n word to his face, and because he accpeted it you think it is ok?

    so called whites have always called us those disgusting names and we have had no recourse this is a result of the power dynamic of whide supremacy.

    those are who are victimized have also internalized these horrible terms and definitions.

    besides many slave masters would drink party and let the slaves entertain them while at the same time calling them names

    you are proving my point

    thanks
    **************
    U don’t read so well. (Ur comical celebration of the Raiders signing Chris Ault shows that).

    My black friend called ME nig-ga. I called him Honkey.

    It was our way of of making fun of racism and letting each other know we didn’t see each other that way.

    We were joking with each other.

    have to admit i like waht big mack has done

    hayden and moore are excllent draft picks and could become cornerstone players to build around

    i like the fa signings, not splashy but better than simply plugging holes with burnett roach maivia jenkins and porter

    i love that he told palmer take a cut or take a hike.

    Most of all im glad of all 3 qbs we had last year he kept pryor and will give him a real chance to play this year

    pryor is the type of player that can turn your team around and make a mediocre team become a challenger in the playoff race

  • SnBG

    DA needs to use Reece more in the offense. Dude is a stud

    Split Murray and Mcfadden wide of Pryor (or whoever wins the competition) in shotgun, with Reece filling in for both, frequently.
