Charles Woodson to safety?

There’s been a lot of speculation lately, especially today, that there may be a groundswell of enthusiasm about the idea of moving cornerback Charles Woodson to safety.

I’m not so sure about the move, but given the fact that Charlie Peprah was not the answer this past season, coupled with the fact that Nick Collins is probably done playing football for life, it is an option that may be considered.

Is he big and durable enough to move into the position? He would be counted on to move to the line of scrimmage to help stop the run, in addition to having to cover a lot of ground in the defensive backfield … is he too old for a move like that?

Only the Packers coaching staff have the answer and will have the final say, but at least we can sound off on it.

Take the poll and let’s see how the numbers stack up.

Should Charles Woodson be moved to safety?
