Woodson in the house, still meeting with Raiders

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, May 21st, 2013 at 4:19 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Beat writer Jerry McDonald has been in Alameda monitoring the situation as defensive back Charles Woodson meets with the Raiders and contemplates whether to re-sign with the team that selected him in the 1998 NFL draft. No word yet on how this is going to turn out, but McDonald is doing his best to keep you informed. Here’s a link to his latest story:

    We finally got Woodson back; however, I don’t like the way he kept us waiting. Welcome back C. W.

  • inonewordraider

    my guess is it’s all about the money too him, his jersey went to salvation army when he left

    but regardless it’s good for perception that a big name, huge talent signed here

    hope he can be a leader and stay healthy, i have no doubt he still has game. 4.3? could have had freeney or abraham for that i believe, but i’ll take it

    I think his jersey went to the back of the closet for a lot of Raider fans when he left.
    Raiders fans all over the country will be pulling it out in the next few days. Raiders!

    Gettin my new #21 Woodson Jersey for suuuure ! Welcome back c-dub truth be told you are the reason I picked up on football and the draft, and not to mention the Raidaaaaz! Been following great DB’s such as yourself ever since !! What a great outlook for us , light at the end of the tunnel for real! Haters gonna hate; Raiders gonna be relevant in an instance believe that!

  • 1960AutumnWind

    This is more of a symbolic signing. He gets up to 4.3 million with much on incentives. They will either rotate him to keep him healthy or he will be injured and gone by the bye week. I do not see this is as a big signing that will add games to the win column but it may sell more tickets.

    Hopefully he can impart some knowledge and makes the safety core deeper.

    Seems like a lot of money for an older player.

    Always liked him when he played for the Raiders.

    if it’s straight up 4.3 million yes, but really depends on the terms mainly because dumervil abraham and freeney would have been better for us, in my opinion, than woodson for that amount

    Maybe not. JMac was there all day with Levi.

  • irjonny

    Woodson has been injured the last 2 years why? Because GB used him as a punching bag in their defense. always up in the box, he played LB on some plays. he’ll start and he’ll stay healthy here in coverage, not run stopper

  • Kamikaze_Sensei

    It’s only a 700 K signing bonus. Doesn’t that mean that the rest of it is based off of performance and, should he get injured, give us a back door out of it?

  • elraidmanhattan

    Love this signing, will impart good habits and professionalism to our young secondary. Heck he is walked in by the great Willie Brown, how could he sign with the horse toothed broncos.

    Funny that these days 4.3 million seems like a lot.

    Times have changed.

  • Stringer Bell

    Woodson adds a playmaker in the secondary, leadership, and depth. He also isn’t getting an out of whack contract. What is not to like?

  • http://cnsnews.com/ Simon

    I’ll take it…Oh, and how old was Rod Woodson when he came to the Raiders?

  • dr_robert

    At first I thought the rally was kinda pointless but when I read the tweets about it and how the players were reacting, I honestly think it might’ve been the thing that did it.

    Hard for a player who has been ignored and had his ego hurt these past months to not feel something from all the love. Hard to walk out and away from people that want u.
