Veteran defensive back Charles Woodson has agreed to re-sign with his original team the Oakland Raiders to a one-year contract.
Woodson's one-year contract includes a 1.8 million in salary and a $700,000 signing bonus and is worth a "maximum" of $4.3 million, likely through hard-to-achieve incentives.
The 6-1, 202-pound former 1998 first round pick (No. 4 overall out of Michigan) spent his first eight seasons with the Raiders (19985-2005), appearing in 106 contests (103 starts) and collecting 17 interceptions (for 328 yards and two scores) and nine forced fumbles with a total of 257 tackles and 5.5 sacks (tackles and sacks weren’t recorded until his fourth season in 2001).
Over the last seven seasons (2006-12), Woodson has totaled 462 tackles with 11.5 sacks, 38 interceptions (for 568 yards and nine TDs) and 15 fumbles in 100 games (all starts) with the Green Bay Packers.
Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen finally have the veteran presents in the secondary and have the piece to the missing puzzle the team desperately required on defense.
