WoodsonIt is being reported out of Green Bay that the Packers are releasing former All-Pro defensive back Charles Woodson.

With this move, Woodson should become the most targeted defensive player by all teams looking for a safety or simply a leader that can lead their defense to greatness.

Woodson had a down season in 2012, only playing seven games.

He had 38 combined tackles, 1.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, five defended passes and one interception.

During the Packers' two playoff games he had 12 tackles, and two defended passes, showing he was still very effective after missing the majority of the season to injuries.

Over his career Woodson has made 921 total tackles, 17 sacks, 29 forced fumbles, 182 defended passes, and 55 interceptions with 11 touchdowns.

He has also made eight Pro Bowl teams and is a seven-time All-Pro. He also picked up Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2009. He also played on the Packers' Super Bowl XLV winning team.

Woodson has been every much as exciting over his 14-year career in the NFL, as he was when he was a Heisman winning defensive back at the University of Michigan when he was in college. Woodson is still to this date the only pure defensive player to ever win a Heisman Trophy.

Woodson has also proved over the years to be dependable from week-to-week, only having three seasons he did not play at least 13 games. Even if age has slowed Woodson down, he would be a solid addition to any team looking for a player that will start every week and lead their defense at the same time.
