GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - It looks like Charles Woodson’s career in Green Bay is over. N-F-L Network says the Packers have decided to release the 16-year veteran defensive back, and his agent is saying that Woodson expects to sign with somebody else because, “He has a lot of football left.” Earlier today, the maker of Charles Woodson Wine – The 24 Wines company – tweeted, “Thank you Green Bay – It was a great run.” The Packers would have had to pay nine million dollars to keep Woodson this year, including a two-and-a-half million dollar roster bonus on the first day of training camp. At 37, with two broken collarbones, the Packers were expected to let him go, especially as they try to find salary cap room to keep younger stars like Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews. Woodson achieved his goal of winning a Super Bowl with Green Bay two years ago, and he was the N-F-L’s defensive player of the year in 2009. During his seven seasons with the Pack, Woodson had 38 interceptions and 11-and-a-half sacks from the secondary.
