After a tumultuous offseason in 2012 for veteran DB Charles Woodson, he eventually signed on with the Oakland Raiders.
Woodson has brought a veteran presence to a young Raiders defense and has actually played better than some assumed he would. After hearing Woodson’s recent comments, it appears as though he is set on returning for another season if the opportunity presents itself.
“I want to play again,” Woodson said in an interview with John Lund and Greg Papa, via CSN Bay Area. “I think this is the only place that I would play. I do plan on coming back and playing for the Raiders. If that didn’t happen, then I think I would have to decide if I want to go somewhere else for another year. If I’m wanted here, I’m coming back.”
Woodson, 37, has produced 75 tackles, two sacks, an interception, one forced fumble and five pass defenses this season. He currently ranks as the No. 38 safety in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.
“I believe this organization is headed in the right direction,” Woodson said. “I’m happy and proud to be a part of that transition, hopefully going forward as well.”
