Charles Woodson is heading back to the team that drafted him.
Woodson and the Raiders have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports first reported and the Raiders later confirmed.
The move comes as no surprise, as Woodson had visited Oakland and the Raiders were one of the few teams known to be interested. The 36-year-old Woodson has acknowledged that he didn't have a lot of options after the Packers released him, although there was talk in recent days that interest was picking up from the Broncos.
So far 2013 has had a different type of feel to it. Instead of talking about who the Steelers may take in April’s draft or celebrating a super bowl victory we as Steeler fans are talking about the quote “fractured” locker room. If you don’t know a recent report came out that an unnamed player criticized Linebacker Lamar Woodley about being out of shape. Recent topics in sports media have been about the mess in the Steelers locker room. While i admit that drama is not something the Pittsburgh Steelers organization welcome with open arms,it is something they have dealt with before. In 2010 quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was suspended four games for his off field legal issues,even as recently as last month running back Chris Rainey was arrested for a domestic charge. It doesn’t look good but things like this happen in life,people in general get into situations. But lets not over react people! Armageddon is not upon us! If any team in the NFL can overcome adversity it’s the Steelers. We saw it in 2010 with Ben,the team went 3-1 in his absence and went to the super bowl. I believe in 2013 this team can be right back in contention,I’m not saying they will win the super bowl but i do think they could be right back on top of the AFC north.
