Former Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson, who was released by the his former team last month, may have a new home – the Dallas Cowboys.

That statement in itself is rather revolting in that a classy guy like Sir Charles being recruited by the antithesis of fair play, Jerry Jones, makes me ill. However, little can we do. Woodson, who would probably fit well with the Cowboys because of their need at safety, may find himself sitting in Jerry Jones’s office sometime within the week. With the hiring of Monty Kiffen as the Cowboys’ new defensive coordinator taking over for Rob Ryan, the Cowboys are looking for a new identity and it could start with Woodson.

Though the names of Dashon GoldsonJairus Byrd and Ed Reed have been bantered about in Dallas, those guys are probably out of reach even for Jerry Jones, but Woodson might be in his price range. Considering that Cowboys’ officials have gone on record as saying they feel Woodson still has a lot in the tank, Jones might be convinced that the 36-year-old potential Hall of Famer could be a great addition.

Whether Woodson wants to go there is another matter. Upon his release from the Packers one of the first things that Woodson said was that he wanted to go to a contender. Would he consider the Cowboys in that category?

Well, it might take some convincing by Jones, but we’ve seen the old snake oil salesman work his pitch in the past. It will be very interesting to see where Woodson lands, whether it’s Dallas or some other team.

Like an old friend, we wish Sir Charles the best and hope he finds what he’s looking for … as long as it’s as far away from Green Bay as possible.
