Denver Broncos to meet with Charles Woodson


Charles Woodson will play for just about anyone, and the veteran defensive back has been on the free agent market for quite some time after being released in mid-February by the Green Bay Packers. After the Cleveland Browns were reported to have no interest in signing Woodson, the 36-year-old is finally getting some interest. According to Vic Lombardi of CBS Denver, the Broncos will “kick the tires” on Woodson and meet with him on a free agent visit tomorrow.

The Broncos are set at corner with Chris Harris Jr. locked in as one of the best and most underrated CBs in the NFL, Champ Bailey a steady veteran starter, and Dominique Rogers-Cromartie is on the Broncos as a free agent signing who is maddeningly inconsistent but could bring big rewards if he puts it all together on this one-year deal in Denver.

While the Broncos have a good situation at cornerback, the situation at safety is far from settled. Signing Kerry Rhodes would be the best move for this bunch, but adding Woodson would also help stabilize a back end of the secondary. He would replace Jim Leonhard as the steady, backup third safety for this team, and I view him as an upgrade in coverage to Mike Adams. Although Adams is a strong safety, the Broncos could switch him off for Woodson and would do well to make an aggressive move by signing the veteran to be a backup in the secondary. Rahim Moore has some lapses, but he is locked in as the team’s FS (even if he isn’t perfect), but I think Woodson would help bring some veteran glue to this group of safeties. Plus, Leonhard was a key backup and should be replace by a guy like Woodson to help fortify a Super Bowl contender.
