As I said in another thread, I really have mixed feelings on this one.

Never was a fan of Woodson until he came to GB. But I really liked him, especially over the last few years. Epitomized class, thoughtfulness. I'm not much for player interviews, but Woodson was always worth listening to.

Two broken collarbones scared me more than anything. There was a play, I think in the SF playoff game this year, where he stayed down after a hit for awhile, and I thought, OMG, not the collarbone again!

Age part didn't though. I'd rather have his savvy back there for a couple years. It's not like his projected replacements really outplayed him. Hayward did, perhaps, but he wasn't playing CW's position, was he?

Gonna miss you, Sir Charles.

Your wine is still too expensive, though.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I bet he signs with the Raiders.

Former team, former Packer as GM, they need a S, do they not?

I think it goes back to this old adage.. release them one year early instead of one year late.

Charles is right about up against the break point of being an impact player yet.... might be beyond it.. or just in front of it.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Packers statement on his release:

Quote:
“We are grateful for all that Charles has given to the Green Bay Packers over the past seven years,” General Manager Ted Thompson said. “He has been an integral part of the Packers’ success and our Super Bowl title in 2010 would not have been possible without his contributions. A once-in-a-generation talent as a player, he is also a great leader and ambassador for the organization off the field. Charles will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We wish him and his family all the best.”

Exactly.

This and the Driver move took some balls and I'm glad I'm not the one having to make the moves, but they're both the right things to do.

He was my current favorite Packer. I just loved the way he plays the game. I wish Green Bay would attempt to bring him back, but it sounds as if they want to move on. It's disappointing, but the NFL is a business and the Packers have other priorities. The secondary doesn’t have many tacklers, so his departure is a huge omission in that regard. However, it’s his leadership that Green Bay will have trouble replacing.

Gonna miss him a lot. Always seemed to be making big plays and he seemed to turn a corner in his life when he came to GB. You wanted to root for the guy. The story of his Super Bowl injury and halftime speech still gets to me.

It wasn't the same feeling as when DD retired. Who can't love the current version of a CW, but he had issues along the way.

It surprised me a little, I wish him the best.

This was tough call, even if he had agreed to a paycut. His decline with speed and quickness over the last two years was vast. And throwing him in at safety with 2 recent collarbone injuries was not a real good decision. I hope Charles makes the decision to retire like Driver did. It's not enjoyable watching these older player decline, and I don't understand why some of them insist on risking injury.

I have two awesome Woodson jerseys, I'll always cherish. Good luck Charles with all you do in the future, and thanks for all you did with charities. We'll keep our fingers crossed that you wear your Green & Gold jersey into the Hall of Fame one day.

Part of it was how well Hayward played.

Dude won't retire by choice without the all time pick six record. Hope he gets it too.

I wish Charles well. Financially, the move had to be made with his loss of speed and two collar bone breaks. I loved watching him play for the Packers. Remarkable talent.

The salary cap takes another one down.
You only have so much money, and you have an aging player who is at or close to the end. Ted Thompson did what he had to do. Not easy to see a favorite player go, but that's today's professional sports.

I'm sad to see CW go and I too hope he gets the pick 6 record. Wish he would have come back at a reduced salary because that's going to happen no matter where he goes, nobody is going to pay 10 mil a year. Who knows if there was much effort put into that. But I am glad we have a GM that makes the tough decisions for the good of the team.
Why is Jerry Kramer not in the Hall of Fame?
