During an interview with ESPN Milwaukee, Charles Woodson talked about the possibility that he could be reunited with one of his former teammates in Oakland, Nnamdi Asomugha. The two players have remained close friends since Woodson departed for Green Bay.
On the idea of moving to the safety position Woodson responded with some surprising optimism.
“If I talked to Dom (Capers) and he thought that was the best thing for us to win another championship I would do it,” Woodson said. “This thing is about winning. If this would have been my fifth year in the league I probably would have told you hell no but at this point if that was going to get me another championship why wouldn’t I?”
Despite Woodson’s optimistic comments, he was exactly sold on the idea.
“I’m not doing any recruiting,” Woodson said. “We’ve texted a few times about winning a Super Bowl. Nothing really about his future I don’t know what’s going on about him and Oakland or anything else. When I look at our team and I look at young Sam (Shields) and Tramon, ‘Where’s he going to fit? How is that possibly going to work out?’ I think that would be the first question you have to ask.”
The Packers have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL which is exactly why spending the money that it would take to land Asomugha would be one of the more shocking moves that could happen during offseason. Ted Thompson has already proven that not only does his strategy equate to roster depth but it has produced a Super Bowl victory. The idea is interesting on paper but is a longshot in actuality.
