OAKLAND, CA (WHBL) - Former Packers’ defensive back Charles Woodson is back with the team he starred with before coming to Green Bay seven years ago. The Oakland Raiders have signed the 36-year-old Woodson to a one-year deal worth 4.3 million dollars. It includes a 700-thousand dollar signing bonus. The Packers cut Woodson in February, as they decided to go with younger players instead of taking a risk on a defender who broke his collarbone twice in the last three seasons. Woodson had visited San Francisco and Denver before signing with the Raiders, where he played for eight years before joining the Packers in 2006. When he was cut, Woodson said he first wanted to go to a Super Bowl contender. But after that didn’t happen, he said he’d be happy playing for whoever wanted him – and that turned out to be Raiders’ G-M and former Packers’ executive Reggie McKenzie. Woodson was the league’s defensive player of the year with Green Bay in 2009. The eight-time Pro Bowler has 55 career interceptions – 11 for touchdowns - the second most in NFL history.
