I can not see the Packers going for Asomugha but it is interesting to see Woodson placing the good of the team above himself.

Woodson would move for Asomugha


Quote:
Charles Woodson said he will not recruit close friend and former teammate Nnamdi Asomugha to Green Bay.

However, the newly minted world champion did say hed be open to moving from cornerback to safety to accommodate Asomugha, who is expected to be the most coveted free agent on the market.

In an interview ESPNMilwaukee.com and ESPNMadison.com, Woodson discussed the chances of reuniting with Asomugha in Green Bay. They were teammates in Oakland from 2003-05. They remain close friends, so its easy to understand why Woodson would be open to making the position switch to make room for Asomugha.

If I talked to Dom (Capers) and he thought that was the best thing for us to win another championship I would do it, Woodson said. This thing is about winning. If this would have been my fifth year in the league I probably would have told you hell no but at this point if that was going to get me another championship why wouldnt I?

Still, Woodson said he is not pushing the idea nor does he have a clue where Asomugha will end up.

Im not doing any recruiting, Woodson said. Weve texted a few times about winning a Super Bowl. Nothing really about his future I dont know whats going on about him and Oakland or anything else. When I look at our team and I look at young Sam (Shields) and Tramon, Wheres he going to fit? How is that possibly going to work out? I think that would be the first question you have to ask.

I know Green Bay has been mentioned a lot in connection to Asomugha and thats because of his relationship with Woodson. But Im not sure Green Bay should be considered a favorite to land Asomugha. Woodson is right. The Packers are loaded at cornerback and the team is not known for being consistent free spenders on the open market. In the end, I could see another team (which very well could be Oakland) giving Asomugha better deal. But it is interesting to know Woodson is willing to do what it takes to reunite with Asomugha.

I do see Chalres Woodson moving the safety.

By the middle of next season, he will move to safety because Sam Shields will be ready to be the number #2 corner.

Asomugha is not happening. The Eagles will probably overpay like crazy for him.

Man, how awesome would that backfield be? Williams, Asoghu- Asoum - the guy from Oakland, Woodson and Collins.

Getting caught in our base defense by a surprise pass wouldn't be much of a problem, would it?

But I agree it probably won't happen. Our secondary is plenty good enough without having to outbid half the league for him....

We basically play a 2-4-5 most of the game anyway. All Asomugha does is stunts the growth of Shields and Morgan Burnette. Draft another corner for depth and we are fine. The money much better spent elsewhere, like Colledge or Jenkins.

We were never big spenders and we won the superbowl with that approach.

As I recall our payroll was either the largest or top three last year.

Er, on re-signing Colledge or replacing him?

Right. The common misconception is that since the Packers rarely make any noise signing outside free agents, that they are low-budget. Not true. The Packers have lots of good players and they sign lots of good players. It's just that most of them are already on the team when it's time to sign them to a big contract.

Anybody better on the roster yet? Until that day, he is our LG. I've been on the fence on that one. I just don't think we should break the bank on Asomugha.

He turns 30 this offseason so put me on the list of people that doesn't want him.

Tough call IMO, considering the emergence of Shields.

Let's not forget that Burnett will be back also at the safety position and we all ready have Collins on the other side.

The only way I see this happening is on a 3-4 year deal nothing more.

No way I want Wood playing SS, especially after that broken collar bone. He obviously is not going to replace Collins. The thought might excite people but the reality wouldn't. Stunting two younger promising corners with an older one, and putting a hall of fame CB in the SS position where he's never played sounds like a disaster to me. Did I mention he will probably be the highest paid corner in the league? No thanks, end of discussion, resign the core we have instead (Jones, Jenkins).

Can he return punts? LOL.
Fact is, Woody already plays safety, they just don't call it that. He's always up on the los like LeRoy Butler, stuffing the run and blitzing the QB. He's already that guy.
Still, a guy like Capers knows what to do with good players. He'd find a way to use everyone to the maximum.

Edit: Didn't mean to quote you shields.
You can argue Woody already plays a "safety" like position. But what's a safety with 2 safeties already on the field?

Don't think he's taking away from what Aso might do over the next few years, just think it made sense back then since Woodson came at a really nice discount, and with our situation now it really doesn't seem necessary.

Asomugha would give us a viable long term option opposite Tramon Williams. It would also stack our secondary even further.

For those interested, I have two Packer blogs at http://strhodenizer.blogspot.com/

One's a bit of a season review while the other looks into how Asomugha would be a good fit for our team.
