• Woodson Cut, Clady Not Going Anywhere

    There are not any stories to link on these two moves yet, but radio reports are saying that two major off-season questions have been answered today.

    In an effort to save themselves something around $10MM, the Packers have cut cornerback Charles Woodson. Woodson had battled injuries a bit, playing just 7 games in 2012, but his versatility on the field has been a key cog for the Green Bay defense over the last seven seasons. Woodson has been an impact player and had nine interception return touchdowns along with a fumble return TD during his time playing his home games at Lambeau Field.

    In Denver, reports are out that standout left tackle Ryan Clady is going to be given the franchise tag. Clady has gone to three Pro Bows in five years and is still in his prime. A lot of teams around the league are not surprised by the move, but can still be heard sighing sadly while holding back tears.

      Would love to see Cincy sign Woodson. Put him at S for a year or 2 and let him mentor the young guys. Gives us the ball hawking S we need who can cover TE's, RB's and slot WR's.

      No guarantees but 2 years ago Hawk was cut right before signing his contract. Will Woodson be back? I'd say it's unlikely, but possible.

      Woodson will be not be out of work for long. A strong veteran presence would look nice in Cleveland or Buffalo or any one of a dozen other cities.

      Woodson cut was not that surprising, and like other I think he could play at a good enough level for the next 2 years. It was apparant that he lost a little bit of a step on his coverage, but is smart enough like most veterans to be able to anticipate the play therefore be in good position to make up for his loss of speed.

      Bob McGinn brought up the handshakes that Woodson started in 2009 or so in his podcast. I loved that way of handling a pick. The whole D running around and giving themselves handshakes after a takeaway, it was a wonderful thing to watch.

      I don't know how the opposition felt about that but I really enjoyed it as a fan.

      Woodson will likely price himself out of most jobs. He's just not the same guy he was even 2 years ago.

    Absolutely. That was a completely crap slide to and if I was an ump he would have been ejected for it. Go to last post

    BTW, I assume you were calling this a bush league slide back in 2012 when Matt Holiday did this.

    The point is that there are a lot of BS slides that baserunners get away for the purpose of trying to break up a double play. The purpose of Utley's slide was timed to break up a double play. ... Go to last post

    This is also my thoughts. Had he started his slide like a normal runner does and takes Tejada out, no issue at all from me. He was pretty much past the bad when he started and it was clear he wasn't... Go to last post

    This is also part of my thought. If Utley plays tonight I can all but guarantee you a brawl will ensue because: 1. He will get drilled. Absolutely no doubt and I'm not 100% sure it will be just the... Go to last post

    The issue is not takeout slides for me; the issue is where Utley began his slide. These images don't really address that. Though I have no doubt that similar things have happened before and they... Go to last post
