Charles Woodson returns to Raiders for farewell tour

The Raiders have re-signed Charles Woodson to a one-year deal according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. His return will allow the future Hall of Fame defensive back to spend his final NFL season in Silver and Black. It also fills the need the Raiders have at the free safety position.

Woodson will be turning 38 in October but proved last season that he has something left in the tank. He played all 16 games for the Raiders, his first as a free safety after 14 seasons as a cornerback and a partial season at strong safety in his final games with the Packers.

Aside from his play on the field, he is a leader and strong veteran presence in the locker room. This is the fitting send-off for the 17-year veteran who spent his first eight seasons with the Raiders after they chose the Heisman Trophy winner with the 4th overall pick in the 1998 draft.

He has 8 Pro Bowls and 4 All Pros to his credit along with a Super Bowl ring with the Packers.
