Yes, Charles Woodson has returned to the Raiders.  The next question becomes how many million reasons they gave him to do it. According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, Woodson's agent, Carl Poston, said that the 1997 Heisman winner's one-year deal is worth a "max' of $4.3 million, which includes a $700,000 signing bonus. The maximum

I feel bad that he will in all likelyhood go into the Hall of fame as a Raider not A Packer.

The football HOF doesn'tuse caps the way that the baseball HOF does so it isn't really an issue. I just hope he has a decent year because I would hate to think of him going out like Emmitt Smith or Orlando Pace did...looking terrible and hanging on desperately when it was clear it was over.

This is a good move bythe raiders. He's an upgrade over their current roster, and for a team with little talent and $49 million in dead money on the books, he isn't tying up cap space beyond the one year. I don't think they see him as a part of things going forward, but unlike a lot of past bad moves, this doesn't cripple their rebuilding in what I think they already know is a lost year. Same with Flynn, to be honest...lots of good QB prospects in next years draft and I think they know they will be picking early again, so why give up the farm for an expensive FA when you can put in a stop-gap for now when you lack the talent to even challenge .500?

This sentiment is why I was hoping he'd land on the Broncos or Lions. He'll go into the Hall of Fame as Charles Woodson and his bust will have the teams he played for listed, which is obvious, everyone knows this and doesn't need to be told. But I was pulling for Broncos or Lions because I could see the Packers being forgotten by Woodson. Sounds silly and innocuous, especially considering the Packers helped him to the only Super Bowl victory of his career. However, the more I think about it, the more I think the Radiers were probably the best fit for him to finish.

I wonder if Tracy Porter or Mike Jenkins will give up 24 or 21 for Woodson lol

I understand this sentiment as I more or less feel the same way.

Hard to read some of the fans posts and not laugh. He went to Oakland and not Denver because Oakland is paying him more money. They will sell it as his "coming home" blah blah bullshit. I'm not in his shoes, but I really don't understand the point in taking the money at this stage of the game. No doubt agents and union reps would disagree with that sentiment, but a second ring sure helps his cause for the HOF rather than having Peyton Manning embarrass his ass and the rest of the shoddy Oakland pass defence.

If you are at the very end of your career and the offer is near vet minimum for no sure thing v. a cool $4.3M, you wouldn't take the latter? He already won a SB and he will be in the HOF.

Charles Woodson is a business man who understands the value of a dollar. There are a lot of those with this deal, one that places him right in the middle of his (backyard) Napa Valley TwentyFour vineyard...

Woodson also knows the odds of landing a 2nd ring. They are taller than we might think.

You're right that this was all about the money, and a sound business decision. I wish him well.
