With the news of Charles Woodson's release by the Packers, many speculated the reason for his release being his salary more than his play on the field. This led some fans to wonder if there remained a chance for Woodson to stay with the Packers under a restructured contract.
WTMJ's Lance Allen tweeted:
The @NFL source also says no pay cut offered between @Packers Thompson &Woodson because Woodson feels there will be a lot of interest in him

It's unclear where Woodson will end up or what kind of money he'll get next year, but the Packers did not try to rework Woodson's deal before releasing him.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
