There are few in the NFL who have shared a team with Charles Woodson longer than Reggie McKenzie. All told, McKenzie was part of the same organization with Woodson for nine of his 18 NFL seasons. Upon Woodson's decision to call it a career, McKenzie made a statement.

"Charles Woodson is one of those players that comes along and reminds you why you love the game," said General Manager Reggie McKenzie. "He is truly a one of a kind player that goes above and beyond his Heisman trophy and future gold jacket. It has been an honor to have worked alongside Charles for so many years and have the confidence to call him what he truly is: the G.O.A.T. He is, without a doubt, the embodiment of what it means to be a Raider."

McKenzie was in the Packers from office when they made Woodson one of their rare big name free agent signings in 2006. He was there when Woodson finally lifted the Lombardi Trophy in 2010. And he was the in Oakland when Woodson made his triumphant return to Oakland in 2013. Back where it all began.
