Mid-afternoon tweets today, Tuesday, May 14, are indicating that former Packers S/CB Charles Woodson has already been offered a contract to return to the team where his professional career began, the Oakland Raiders.

Earlier today, it was reported among several sources that Woodson had been invited to a visit to the Denver Broncos and it seems that is still on, but according to other tweets, Woodson had already been offered a contract by the Raiders.

Here are a couple of the tweets:

 


This has got to be good news in the Woodson camp. Earlier this spring, Sir Charles couldn’t keep his disappointment from showing when he said that teams had not been calling and that he thought many around the league thought he was “ancient.”

So, today’s developments have got to be an encouraging sign for the longtime Raider and Packer.

No doubt the Raiders’ Reggie McKenzie, a longtime Packers front office guy, has had an influence in the pursuit of Woodson. Also of note, you can bet that Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson, though they made the decision to part ways with Woodson, are probably counting their blessings that he is considering a move to the AFC West and not a team in the NFC.

We will keep on top of the situation and report any other news as it becomes available.

Stay tuned …

    It will be interesting to see the money involved where ever he ends up.

    Playing in Den for say..$3 mill for one year (opposed to $10 mill),would surely be telling Packer fans,he (Woodson) simply didn’t feel the Packers are a contending team as he could have stayed in GB for the same money..yes/no?

    Not that I’m endorsing he should have been kept…I’m not. It was the best thing to do even with the ‘leadership’ role chant of many as a basis for his retention.

    IMO,we didn’t need another year of a sideline ‘rah rah’ at the expense of a roster spot.

    Come back & finish you’re career with the Raiders. Don’t go play with the Donkeys. Don’t let it be about the money. You’ve made plenty. Come finish where it all started.
