Packers released S Charles Woodson.
Woodson broke the news via his wine company's Twitter account, and it was soon confirmed by his agent. His release clears $10 million in scheduled pay off the Packers' 2013 books. "It's part of the business," Woodson's rep told NFL.com. The sides could consider re-upping on a cheaper deal, but Rapoport hints it's not being discussed at this time. Going on 37, Woodson was not playing at a high level before a broken collarbone cost him the final nine games of the regular season. He isn't believed to be considering retirement, however.

He already has a ring.

At this point he's only good for a Free Safety. IMO, he hasn't come to terms with his market value yet for New England to scoop him up for cheap. If he wanted less money, he probably would've restructured with the Packers.

Raiders?

He can end his career where he started, and it looks like they were okay with the Michael Huff @ CB experiment.

Not to mention give the team a much-needed veteran leadership presence.

What is Woodson's strengths nowadays? If he can help in coverage I'm all for it.

Having a ring doesn't mean that he wouldn't want another one. Those are sort of important to older, veteran guys.

There are some guys who would be insulted that their own team would low-ball them and then go take a similar offer somewhere else.

I don't think he adds much over the Safeties that Atlanta currently has. I'd say that's the best part of that aging defense at this point.

I can't imagine Woodson being able to slide over to CB or be a viable Nickle CB.

Nobody said anything about low-ball.

But yes, there is a degree of pride to not paying a pay-cut. I mean, in re-negotiation both sides need to give something up. For a pay-cut, Woodson would need some sort of longer-term deal, and I doubt the Packers have any intention of it.

The Packers weren't obligated to release him until the start of training camp (that's the first time he's owed a roster bonus). The fact that they did so now speaks volumes about the amicable break-up and the extent (or lack thereof) of the negotiations, and about Woodson not being in GB's long-term plan.
GB: "We can't afford the deal we gave you, wanna work the next 2 years for the same price?"
CW: "No."
GB: "Darn. Okay, bye!"


Of course, being 37 this fall, he doesn't have many years left for a long-term deal.

But still, for a 1-2 year deal, he's going to be asking $4-6 million/year. He'll probably start at 6 or more, but as he circles the league a few times it'll go down.

“We are grateful for all that Charles has given to the Green Bay Packers over the past seven years,” General Manager Ted Thompson said. “He has been an integral part of the Packers’ success and our Super Bowl title in 2010 would not have been possible without his contributions. A once-in-a-generation talent as a player, he is also a great leader and ambassador for the organization off the field. Charles will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We wish him and his family all the best.”

You're reading a lot more into this than anything shown so far.
