The Green Bay Packers are going to look a lot different next season. After Donald Driver decided to call it a career last week, NFL.com is reporting the Pack will release pro-bowl DB Charles Woodson.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Green Bay will release the 2009 defensive player of the year not because they think Woodson is washed up but because of money.
"They're getting ready to release him. It's part of the business," agent Carl Poston said. "I just talked to him. He sounds like he has a lot of football left. "He'd like to go play for a contender, win another Super Bowl."
Could the Detroit Lions be interested in bringing the former Michigan star back home? With a lack of leadership, and a big need in the defensive backfield, the Lions should take a long look at the former Heisman winner.
Woodson moved to safety last season due to a decline in speed, but make no mistake, if he is healthy he is still one of the best in the game. It's just a matter of time before Woodson lands on a different team.
