Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson will officially be back for his 18th NFL season as the Raiders have agreed to a one-year contract extension with him.
Woodson had signed a two-year contract with the Raiders in 2013, and he showed that he can still be a valuable contributor even in the twilight of his career by registering 209 tackles, three sacks and five interceptions in two seasons.
The safety used to play cornerback before he moved due to his declining production. He had originally spent eight seasons with the Raiders starting in 1998.
He spent his next seven seasons with the Green Bay Packers, where he won a Super Bowl in 2010 and Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2009.
Woodson will turn 39 in the middle of next season, and he will look to help keep improving a young, rising Raiders defense.
Albert Breer of NFL Network announced Woodson’s stay in Oakland on Twitter.
