The Raiders and Charles Woodson are having a reunion.
Both Woodson and the Raiders on Tuesday agreed to a one-year deal, according to Jay Glazer.
Woodson met with the 49ers earlier in free agency, but aside from that the interest for the 2009 Defensive Player of the Year was paper thin. That is, until a week ago.
That’s when it reported the Raiders had offered a contract to the future hall of famer. He then also met with the Broncos.
On Tuesday, Woodson, still yet to put pen to paper with any team, visited the Raiders at Raiders HQ, where fans gave him the Justin Bieber treatment.
Woodson played the first eight years of his career in Oakland as one of the game’s top cornerbacks. He’s switched to free safety in 2012, his final year in Green Bay. The Raiders aren’t solidified at the position, and Woodson, even at 36, is an instant upgrade. It’s a move that makes sense for both sides.
Here are the figures on the contract:
Charles Woodson’s agent told me he has agreed to a 1-year deal worth a max of $4.3 million. It includes a signing bonus of $700,000 #Raiders

So, the reunion has officially begun. But is this the farewell tour?
