Ex-Packer Woodson still a free agent


Ex-Packers defensive back Charles Woodson is still a free agent.

When he was first released by Green Bay, Woodson said he would only play for a contender, but because he still hasn't found a team, he's lowering his standards.

“I know I am towards the end of my career," Woodson said in an interview with NFL Network. "At this point, I want to play football. So if it is a rebuilding stage, at this point if that is the circumstances I have to play under, then that is what I am going to do.”

At 36 years old, Woodson's name hasn't been brought up in Minnesota on a wide-ranging scale, but what if the Vikings signed him to play safety?

Michael Rand explored the question back in February.

We ask: Why not? Here's some of the reaction.
