With the release of Charles Woodson, the Packers continue the ending the era of the Super Bowl winners like I mentioned here. While from the business side of the game it made sense given how much he was going to make along with his roster bonus, there is an emotional effect that made people want Woodson to be a Packers forever.
Back in 2006 when we signed Woodson, I thought this was a bad signing. I thought this was another player that did not want to come to Green Bay plus I thought that the best day were behind Woodson. I’m happy that Woodson proved me wrong, I’m happy that he proved he could be the defensive leader that we so needed at the time not only in words (Like so many players), but in his actions.
Age caught up with Woodson, but he will never be forgotten in the eyes of Green Bay.
