It's official, Charles Woodson will be returning for at least one more season with the Raiders. The team re-signed the veteran defensive back to an extension on Monday.

This comes a week after the team brought back Defensive Backs coach Marcus Robertson, who Woodson had said would need to be retained if he were to decide to come back next season.

The 38-year-old had a very good season in 2014, his second since returning to the team that drafted him, and where he played the first eight seasons of his career. He has started all 32 games over the past two seasons in Oakland at the safety position, leading the team with 111 tackles (81 solo), and four interceptions. He had one fewer interceptions on his own than the rest of the team had combined (5).

His outstanding 2014 campaign had him named a Pro Bowl alternate. He is an 8-time Pro Bowler and 3-time first team All Pro.

One would assume this will be his final season. It will be his 18th in a Hall of Fame worth career.
