Packers CB Charles Woodson Looking For New Contract

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson, the NFL's reigning Defensive Player of the Year, is reportedly in talks on a new contract with the team, Josina Anderson of FOX31 in Denver reports.

Woodson, who turns 34 in October, has three years and, depending on Pro Bowl appearances, between $20.6 and $23.6 million dollars remaining on a seven-year, $43 million dollar contract the six-time Pro Bowler signed as a free agent in 2006. Woodson is due to earn a $6.5 million dollar base salary in 2010, as well as up to an additional $900,000 in roster bonuses throughout the season.

A member of the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 2000s, Woodson has 258 tackles, 6 quarterback sacks, and 28 interceptions, seven of which he's returned for touchdowns, over his four seasons in Green Bay.

Overall, the 1997 Heisman Trophy winner and fourth-overall pick of the 1998 NFL Draft out of Michigan has 45 interceptions, 11.5 quarterback sacks, and 9 interception returns for touchdowns in his career.

It's unlikely that Woodson is seeking the $15 million dollar per year contract that cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha received from the Oakland Raiders, but after seeing what teammate Al Harris is currently going through, getting a significant portion of the $20 million dollars remaining on his contract guaranteed wouldn't be far-fetched, or all that unreasonable.

Given Woodson's age and the number of remaining years on his contract, it will be interesting to see if the Packers address his contract this off-season.

Pay the man Ted.

He's the most instinctive DB to play in the NFL in the last 10 years. He takes great care of his body, he appreciates the history and sanctity of the Green Bay Packers in NFL history and he wants to play until he doesn't.

Pay him Ted.
