Report: Woodson to visit Broncos
Former Packers All Pro safety Charles Woodson, who was released by Green Bay early in the off-season, has a visit scheduled with the Broncos for sometime this week, according to Vic Lombardi of CBS4 in Denver.
It's the first time in a while that Woodson has been on any team's radar; the market has been surprisingly tepid for the 2009 NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2009. The 49ers had him in for a visit before the draft, but opted not to sign him. Woodson had initially expressed interest in joining a contending team, but said in an interview last week on NFL Network that he'd play anywhere, regardless of how good - or how bad - the team was.
But Denver would be a good fit, even though the Broncos already have Rahim Moore and Mike Adams as their starters. But it couldn't hurt to have Woodson in reserve. Even though he has lost a step, Woodson can make up for that loss of speed with his wily veteran skills.
