2. Charles Woodson

Literally, any list of all-time Raiders must, and I repeat, must include Charles Woodson. When he returned in 2013, many felt the then 37-year-old’s biggest contribution to the team would be a leadership role on a very young squad. C-Wood fulfilled those duties but also made a significant impact on the field.

The old man had 10 interceptions in the decade which is the most of any player that suited up for the Raiders and his 282 combined tackles rank third. In 2014, Woodson became the first member of the 50/20 club – 50 interceptions and 20 sacks – in NFL history and remains the only player to accomplish that feat.

Along similar lines as Tommy Kelly, the 1998 Heisman trophy winner should undoubtedly make two Oakland Raiders All-Decade teams. Eventually, he will cap off his football career by being enshrined in Canton in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but every time he put on that Silver and Black, something special always seemed to happen.
