Charles Woodson on Future: I expect to be a Green Bay Packer

Defensive back Charles Woodson is a veteran who entered the league back in 1998. While Woodson may not be the same player who won the Heisman and NFL’s Defensive player of the year, he is still a decent corner and above average playmaker. After being moved to primarily safety and a slot corner in nickel and dime defenses, Woodson has missed 7 games with a broken collarbone.

Woodson recently made it clear that he plans to play through his contract which is up after next season, and plans to be a Packer throughout the duration of it.

Per Green Bay Press-Gazette: “Until somebody tells me I’m not, this is where I plan on playing,” Woodson said. “I haven’t had that conversation.  If that conversation comes around, it comes around, but as far as I know is, anything that I expect is that I’ll be a Green Bay Packer.  That’s all I have to say about that.”

Whenever the time comes, I know how to play football,” Woodson said. “That’s one thing you don’t [forget].  Just because you have time off, doesn’t mean you forget how to play the game.  I know how to play the game.  I know the defense, and so when that time comes, I’ll be ready.”

With base salaries of $6.5 million in the next two years, I wouldn’t be shocked if Woodson is asked to take a pay cut. If he’s not willing, he could be playing elsewhere next season.
