Update: CB Charles Woodson told Jason Wilde at ESPN Milwaukee that he hasn't asked for a new deal.
Ran into this 'rumor' on Yahoo Sports this morning stating that the Packers are in negotiation with Charles Woodson to extend his contract. Woodson who is already 33, is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year for the NFL and is closing in on the final years of his 7 year $52 million deal he signed after leaving Oakland. The contract would expire in 2012 and pays him $7.5 million this season.
My guess is that there are some big numbers at the end of the deal so they are going to give him some big signing bonuses and make it so that his numbers are easier to swallow in the coming years. I hope he can keep this level of play up though...he is truely a standup guy and one of the best in the league...even at his 'old' age.
Not really sure how a place in Denver (Fox 31 Denver) is breaking this though, not sure how credible it is...
