37-year-old future Hall of Famer Charles Woodson re-signed with the Oakland Raiders this offseason and he did openly admit that he thought about putting an end to his illustrious career. Because of that, many believe that 2014 will be the last we see of one of the best cornerbacks to ever play the game; but hold on a minute, not so fast.
Given some of the recent acquisitions that the team has made, there’s a good chance that the Raiders could finally be competitive once again, meaning that Woodson is now thinking about sticking around a little longer past this season.
“Going off of how I feel health-wise, I’m not looking at this being the last year,” Woodson said after Monday’s OTA session. “I’m going to enjoy every moment of this experience because you never know how it’s going to turn out. You look at what they’ve done here and you see the draft they’ve had – we’re going to be a good team. If that means playing this year and beyond, I’ll be open to it.”
Woodson returned to the Raiders prior to last season, the place where he started his career, and played in all 16 games, totaling 97 tackles with two sacks and an interception, proving that he still has a lot left in the tank.
