FRIDAY, 1:06pm: The Charles have officially announced the signing of Woodson (Twitter link).
Late last month, the veteran said that he would walk away from the game if he wasn’t paid appropriately.
“If the right numbers don’t come across, for myself and from the team’s standpoint, then it is a serious consideration at this point that I could have played my last season in the NFL,” Woodson said. “So that’s definitely something that I think about. I do plan on playing another year. Hopefully something can get done with the Raiders but if not then I’ve got to take a real hard look at this last year being the last one.”
Ultimately, the Raiders and the cornerback-turned-safety were able to hammer out a new contract. Woodson, 38 in October, earned $3.4MM with Oakland in 2013 when counting his incentives for performance and playing time. Woodson started all 16 games for the Raiders last season in the secondary and finished with 75 tackles, one interception, two sacks, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.
