Friday it was announced that the Green Bay Packers had released DB Charles Woodson, who had been with the team for the last seven seasons.
Woodson had many great accomplishments during his career in Green Bay, including holding the franchise record for most defensive touchdowns, as well as being named the AP defensive player of the year in 2009. During his seven seasons as a Packer, he had a total of 38 interceptions and 11.5 sacks.
It is obvious why the Packers felt the need to let Woodson go, as his release frees up 10 million dollars in cap space. While it is very sad to see him go, the best of luck to him in his future endeavors, as he wishes to remain in the league for a few more years in hopes of winning another title.
But for now, here a few shots of Woodson during his time at Green Bay!
And just because of our rivalry with the Chicago Bears…..I just had to put this!
