NFL Rumors: Charles Woodson says Oakland Raiders should sign DeSean Jackson

As an incoming player, you not only want to be liked by the front office, but you also want veterans approval – so I’m sure it’s rather welcoming for recently released wide receiver DeSean Jackson to get approval from Charles Woodson.

The longtime member of the Oakland Raiders secondary (with a six-year Green Bay Packers pit stop sandwiched between) gave a ringing endorsement to Jackson, suggesting he’d more than welcome him in silver and black.

“Bring him in, I think he would look good in the silver and black,” Woodson said. “Of course I know the business side of it, but I’ve watched this guy and what he is, is a dynamic football player. What they’re talking [about] as far as off-the-field stuff, I have no clue about. The team would have to do their homework as far as that’s concerned.

“But when you talk about bringing in a guy as talented as he is, and you have that opportunity, I think you take a shot at it. And I think where we are as a team, we need all the playmakers we can have, and adding that guy would definitely help take us to the next level.”

Sounds as if Woodson is mostly commenting on his on-the-field ability and is leaving the investigative work up to the Oakland front office, but he appears to be on board with the potential addition.
