Raiders set to host Woodson for visit

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, May 16th, 2013 at 7:04 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Defensive back Charles Woodson intends to visit the Raiders, if all goes according to plan, his agent said Thursday.
Woodson, 36, met with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, but he left town without a deal. Earlier this offseason, he met with 49ers officials about the prospect of joining their team.
Woodson’s agent, Carl Poston, reportedly told ESPN that Woodson will visit the Raiders on Tuesday. Poston said earlier this week that the Raiders already made an initial contract offer to Woodson.
The Green Bay Packers released Woodson earlier this offseason in a salary-cap move. At first, Woodson said he wanted to play for a legitimate Super Bowl contender. He since has softened that stance as a result of a lack of interest.
Woodson spent his first eight NFL seasons with the Raiders, who selected him with the fourth pick of the 1998 NFL draft. He joined the Packers in 2006 and helped them win a Super Bowl during his seven seasons in Green Bay.
Woodson primarily played cornerback for the Raiders. He converted to free safety late in his Packers career.
It’s likely that the Raiders are interested in Woodson playing free safety, given they released long-time starter Michael Huff, and they don’t have a proven replacement on their roster.

    Please Mr Woodson, don’t put us back into Heartbreak Hotel like you did before. I know we could make it with or without you but we have this crazy little thing called love for you and we know you would be wonderful tonight.
    Climb that Stairway to Heaven and come back to Raiderland

    Yeah. People need to learn to ignore him. Oh wait.

    Could this happen in (or near) Oakland if we get a new stadium?

    =========================================

    No objections here. I love cigarette taxes because they’re the only taxes that are 100% voluntary. Nobody pays tobacco taxes unless they want to.

    Maybe Alameda County could use it to pay off the 140mil tax debt still being paid by us for Mt Davis.

    Either making fun of the Chinese or your spelling.
    Me, I’m not a blog grammarian or spell checker. I notice ‘em, but don’t comment on ‘em. Typos happen too easily. Correctly spelled but totally misused words and phrases tell me something about the poster, but again, I don’t comment on them.

    woodson would really upgrade the free safety pos. he could make plays on the ball.something huff couldn’t do consistantly. giordano was simply trash. as a matter of fact, we’ve haven’t had good safety play since rod woodson. before that eric turner (rip).

    i think we good at corner we’re good. specially if porter stays healthy.teams won’t have bartell to abuse. he sucked. phillip adams played well before getting hurt. think we will have an under the radar defense that will be good. in both 3-4 and 4-3 base. come on tuesday………

    the Minnesota Vikings got their new stadium by raising taxes on cigarettes

    I hope Oakland doesn’t raise the taxes on Irish whiskey as I can barely afford it now

    legalize marijuana and tax it

    legalize crack cocaine and tax it

    legal prostitution taxes

    can you think of anything else we need money for a new stadium
