The sun is beating down from in between the clouds in Oakland, California. O.co Coliseum is packed, and the Black Hole is roaring. RG3′s jersey is covered in grass stains as sweat drips from his brow. He glances up at the clock and sees that their one first down away from sealing a win. The Redskin’s quarterback takes the snap and drops back to pass, he steps up in the pocket to avoid a bear hug from Lamarr Houston. As he begins to scramble out of the pocket, Sio Moore, leaves his linebacker position to cause some damage. Unable to escape, Griffith, unloads a tight spiral to Pierre Garcon’s deep in route. As the ball floats towards the receiver’s grasp, it meets an unexpected yet familiar face. Number 24, Charles Woodson, flies in from the safety position to pluck the ball away. The crowd goes wild and Mark Davis cuts his hair.

This could be a very real reality for Oakland Raider fans (minus the Mark Davis haircut). Charles Woodson has expressed how anxious he is to return to the field via NFL.com.

So would Oakland be interested in signing their former corner? At the current moment, Oakland seems to be all set in the secondary. However, can McKenzie turn down the former Packer? Woodson would certainly add veteran leadership, and of course his stellar ability to play anywhere in the secondary. McKenzie knows that from his time in Green Bay. The Canton bound Woodson would turn this into an extremely potent defense.

With D.J. Hayden and Mike Jenkins ready to start at corner(Tracy Porter at nickel corner), Woodson would most likely fit best at safety. Alongside the helmet smashing Tyvon Branch, quarterbacks would just stop passing the ball. Unfortunately for Usama Young, he would have to wait another season or two in order to get his shot.

In my opinion Reggie has to at least kick the tires on this guy. Sit him down, feed him lunch, talk about taking a pay cut and the difference he would be making. Then Reggie can move on to addressing issues of real concern (offensive and defensive line). If Woodson signs, great. If not, than at least we tried.

    I highly doubt he wants his last few years in the league on a team rebuilding. Although I’d welcome him back and try and fit into my old #24 jersey.

  • Pridenpoise

    He’s already stated he would be willing to play for a rebuilding team. That’s what happens when no contenders are knocking at your door.

  • bill kush

    I say bring him back if the price is right. Let him retire where he started.

  • Raider Grant

    If he is visiting the Denver Bronchos he’s not a Raider at heart & we should save Our finance in order to sign other talent.

  • Raider Grant

    Welcome back Mr. Woodson! I wish your jersey still fit, guess ill be getting one that does! Glad you decided to come back to…… The Nation Baby! Go Raiders!
