Lions' Burleson, Steelers' Clark "Plead" For Woodson

Lions' Burleson, Steelers' Clark "Plead" For Woodson

Various players around the NFL are making it clear that they think former Green Bay Packers defensive back Charles Woodson can still play.

According to Steve Wyche of NFL Network, both Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson and Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark "pleaded" for Woodson to join their respective teams Monday.

Neither the Lions or Steelers made the postseason last season.

Shortly after Woodson's release last Friday, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was one of the first to invite the 36-year-old to a new NFL city.

Of course, players don't make personnel decisions. But the constant outpouring of support for Woodson shows what kind of respect Woodson still maintains around the NFL.

Also on NFL AM, former Packers quarterback Brett Favre said he was "surprised" by the Packers' decision to cut Woodson, citing that the safety might still be the "most instinctive player" in the NFL.

Please don't go to Detroit. Chuck deserves better than those second-rate punks.

This is one reason why I was hoping CW might have stuck around as a full-time FS. His loss of speed would have been protected there, while his instincts might have actually improved the entire defense with his playcalling adjustments and his ability to find the right angles.

I feel the same way CD, I think Wood could have easily mellowed into a less risk-taking player & really guided that secondary, as he didn't have much chance to do that this year due to absence on the field. I wonder if his protracted return after injury means the team knows the collar bone is a real threat to his playing safety and staying healthy. Also, reports say there was no discussion of a reduction in his salary, but you know that had to be mentioned between parties somewhere along the way in an innocuous phone call or after practice.
