Free agent defensive back Charles Woodson says NFL teams think heís too old, and thatís why he remains unemployed six weeks after the Packers cut him.

ďIím 36, so of course Iím considered ancient in the game right now, and teams are looking for younger players and trying to make their rosters younger,Ē Woodson said on NFL AM. ďIf youíre an older guy they kind of push you to the side, and theyíll maybe look at you much later on down the road, when I guess they figure they can get you much cheaper.Ē

Woodson says his camp has put out word that heís interested in finding a new team, but so far that interest hasnít been reciprocated.

ďNothing right now, nothing substantial. Iím just waiting around. We put feelers out, just to see where everybodyís at, but thereís not much right now,Ē Woodson said.

The season is still five months away, and thereís still a good chance that some team will bring Woodson in this year. But right now, Woodson is right: 36-year-olds are low priorities for NFL teams

My favorite comment on this story: Bucs should call this guy up. Then Woodson and Barber can mix up each others pill organizers.

I lol'd

Call him, Dom.

I remember when our fanbase didn't want Gruden to bring him in because he was another oakland guy...

We will be Carolina ready when we are Carolina ready.

For a reasonable price, I'd be OK with it.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

I definitely think some team should get him, but not us. We don't 2 old CBs who can't keep up in man to man anymore.

See I remember it differently. Most were ecstatic at the prospect of adding Woodson to play FS(at the time). His signing was extremely close too, he had dinner with Allen and Gruden the night before he signed in Green Bay. We just didn't offer him enough cash. The fan had nothing to do with it, even of they did more people wanted to sign him than not.


This guy...

Arthritis.

Seriously, he's at the point he's wearing velcro strap shoes and sports a life-alert necklace in case he falls down.

Still, just to bring him in cheap, with the intention of having him teach the rooks about the game (on the field) would be a good thing.

That was 2006.  The fanbase I remember were calling Bruce Allen Gruden's puppet.  Charley Garner and Tim Brown set the tone for former raiders here in Tampa as unwanted.  I remember wondering why there was such opposition...
