Although both sides want to get a deal done that will make Safety Charles Woodson a Raider for the remainder of his career it unfortunately isn’t always that easy. Apparently negotiations have hit a snag.
Contract structure has been a hang up in talks between an impending free agent who wants to remain in Oakland and a Raiders team that wants him back. Woodson isn’t looking for a massive pay raise or a multi-year deal. He just wants something that shows greater confidence in what he can still do. In short, Woodson doesn’t want to sing for his supper. -CSNBayArea.com
Woodson has a ton to offer the team and has shown loyalty even through adversity. The Raiders have plenty of cap room and they should accept any counter offer that is close to reasonable market value.
