It has been a long offseason for former Green Bay Packer defensive back Charles Woodson. First, he was cut by the Packers in February, and he has gone nearly three months with teams showing little or no interest in him. That is all changing today, however, as Chuck appears to suddenly have multiple teams interested in his services for the 2013 football season.
First up was the Denver Broncos, with whom Woodson is scheduled to meet this week:
Charles Woodson's agent Carl Poston just told me, "he's scheduled to fly to Denver today and meet with the Broncos through Wednesday."— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) May 14, 2013
That certainly appeared promising for the veteran safety, but now it appears that two other teams have made known their desire to bring Woodson on board:

Furthermore, the Raiders apparently already have put an initial contract offer on the table, an interesting move. It appears that Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie is very interested in bringing in a ball-hawking defensive back who he is very familiar with from their shared time in Green Bay. Whether this will affect Woodson's meeting in Denver has yet to be determined, of course, but it appears that Woodson's second long trek through free agency may be nearing a close.
