    Heisman trophy winner , yea I wanted that on my team in 1999. Why underplay the gap between a 32 year old Charles Woodson, and one that is 36? You didn't make one argument as to why it would be a good allocation of our money this off season. He is NOT the player he once was, he is playing safety which is a position we happen to be quite capable at. Would we have him play corner? His speed and quickness is deteriorating which is why he was put back there in the first place.

    Get out of here with this heisman talk.
    Had you been paying attention you would have noticed my earlier post when I suggested a case can be made for a veteran presence on our defense that can show the young guys who have played ok but may need someone with experience in winning that can get the group to take the next step into being a playoff caliber team.

    Charles Woodson's resume and credentials, granted a couple years removed from his most recent success still is better than anything we have, for the exception of Rashad Jones. That is not even debatable! He can bring much needed leadership and IMO, can alternate between CB, nickel DB, and FS. He might not be as fast as he used to be, however, he does have a knack for getting turnovers and eyeing the football when it's in the air which is something our lousy corners have an inability to do.

    Finally, he brings a certain Hall of Fame pedigree which is highly valuable to a team struggling to find an identity. If he didn't have any gas left in the tank he would just retire. He's made plenty of money so you know he's not coming back for that reason. He knows he can ball and if you look at his body type, somewhat slinder, highly versatile athlete with a slim yet tone frame, those in the know just know he can still play. Maybe even to the age of 40! Dude wasn't the Heisman trophy winner for nothing, even though to you that appears to mean nothing. But by all means, go ahead and tag Sean *cough*sucky*cough* Smith and see where that gets you..... oh heck I'll save you the time, it's equivalent to what you'd find in the bottom of a dumpster. Surely you're in favor of that, correct?

    Re: Charles Woodson anyone?

    People go by reputation too much, if this guy was still the top player a few are making out then he would retire a packer.

    Sign young talent that will develop together, dont waste money signing an old man that will need replaced by the time the players around him are ready to compete.

    While you do make a case as to why he could have a role on this team, I do not think he's going to take a 1 year deal here especially for the cheap because he has made it CLEAR that he wants to play for the sole purpose of winning another superbowl. I also don't think it would be worth the $9 million he is owed to hope that we didn't just give him a fat, Miami based retirement plan. If a short term, overpriced veteran contract is the only way we can make a push to just make the playoffs? I'd rather wait, spend our money elsewhere, and develop our own young talent. While I do think veterans can have a strong positive impact on younger players in the locker room, that's also why we have DB coaches.....don't need to pay $9 million for that.

    Remember it is okay to agree and disagree as along as it is does respectfully. Another brother's view could help open our eyes and also make us think a little differently.

    Only as a safety and only if the price is right.

    I was bummed when I read he only wanted to play for a contender, but I'm thinking if the fins can land some nice FA WR's and draft well, we just might be a solid contender option. Underdogs
