Broncos HC John Fox mentioned that they’re currently in “wait and see” mode regarding Woodson.
This could be an attempt by Woodson and his agent to increase the Broncos’ pursuit of the future Hall of Famer. Both the Broncos and Raiders have reportedly made him an offer, so we’ll have to see if things heat up in the coming days.
We have Woodson listed as the No. 13 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
Woodson has a visit scheduled with the Raiders next week, but he’s reportedly still open to playing for Denver. Previous reports indicated that he also received an offer from Oakland, so it could end up being down to those two teams. The Giants and Panthers have shown interest as well, but no visits have been scheduled up to this point.
The agent for free agent DB Charles Woodson has informed Josina Anderson that his client will meet with the Raiders next week.
“The Raiders have invited Charles in for a visit. As of right now the plan is for him to fly in Tuesday. We are still waiting for their official schedule at this time.”
The Giants have also shown some interest in Woodson along with the Broncos and Panthers. This is a pretty good market for a guy who’s currently 36-years-old.
Klis adds that despite interest from the Raiders and Panthers, the Broncos are “likely are the leading candidate” to sign Woodson.
Denver has about $7 million in cap space to work with and, according to Klis, they could use a “ballhawk” in their secondary.
- Josina Anderson reports that the Woodson’s agent, Carl Poston, has informed her that the Giants have “put their toe in the water again for Charles Woodson.”
The Giants interest is a little surprising, but it’s hard to say if they have serious interest in the idea of adding him to their roster. We’ll have more as the news becomes available.
- Josina Anderson reports that Woodson’s agent Carl Poston has informed her that the Raiders and Panthers have also inquired about his client.
- Poston also told Anderson that the Raiders have sent him an intial offer.
- Mike Klis reports that Woodson will visit the Broncos on Wednesday.
- Lombardi expects the Broncos to useWoodson in a dual role safety-cornerback role, assuming that they sign him of course.
Woodson, 36, recently mentioned that he’s willing to play for anyone next season after finding almost no interest on the free agent market this offseason.
The 49ers brought him in for a visit a few months ago, but they elected to sign Nnamdi Asomugha instead.
Denver would appear to be a great landing spot for him given that they already have a decent secondary that includes guys like Champ Bailey, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Chris Harris. If the Raiders and Panthers also serious interest in him, then a there’s a chance that Woodson could have a new team at some point in the near future.
