Despite not selecting a safety among the 11 picks the Packers made in the seven rounds of the NFL Draft, they still have not contacted Charles Woodson about a possible return.
Passed along from the public relations department of the NFL Network from an appearance earlier on Thursday…
Charles Woodson on if he would return to GB if given opportunity: “I don’t want to speculate on that bc I haven’t heard anything from GB.”

Even though the Packers released Woodson earlier this offseason, there’s been speculation whether Woodson could return to Green Bay if he were willing to accept less money and a more limited role.
Apart from Morgan Burnett, there’s not a whole lot of experience at the safety position. The Packers would appear committed to Jerron McMillian and M.D. Jennings for the 2013 season, but they seemingly could still use some depth.
The Packers may not be interested in Woodson, however. It’s clear he’s lost a step, arguably two, and the Green Bay may just want to move in a different direction.
At the very least, Woodson would provide leadership and a knowledge of Dom Capers’ system.
Other free agent safeties still available Kerry Rhodes, Gerald Sensabaugh, O.J. Atogwe, Charlie Peprah and Atari Bigby.
