After the Green Bay Packers released cornerback Charles Woodson last week, immediate speculation began that he would sign with a Super Bowl contending team such as the New England Patriots, New York Giants, or even the Baltimore Ravens. Both the giants and the Ravens are struggling to find salary cap room, and it’s unclear if Woodson would be willing to play for a small contract in his finals year(s).
Woodson plaed in just nine total games in 2012, while registering 50 tackles, 1.5 sacks, one interception and seven pass breakups. He missed much of the second-half of last season after suffering a broken collarbone, which was the same bone he broke in Super Bowl XLV.
Still, the 2009 Defensive Player of the Year has enough left in the tank to offer a team a hard-hitting, veteran safety, would provides Super Bowl experience, and could help a young contender, say the Bengals, get over the hump and become a Super Bowl threat in 2012.
