Defensive back Charles Woodson signed a one-year deal with the Raiders Tuesday night.
And while the fan support surely played a factor so did $4.3 million, which is what Woodson can earn including incentives. That includes a $700,000 signing bonus for a 36-year-old player who had very little inte
The wisdom of Tampa Bay’s trade for cornerback Darrelle Revis ultimately will be determined by the player’s performance in 2013 and beyond. His performance in 2013 hinges on the performance of his surgically-repaired knee.
