As the Green Bay Packers come into the 2012 season there’s some uncertainty at the safety position since Nick Collins was released a short time ago. Veteran cornerback Charles Woodson has made it clear that he’d be open to moving to safety if it’s the best move for the team.
“I think that it comes down to what the other guys are going to be able to do as far as the cornerback position is concerned,” Woodson said during an appearance on ESPN 540 Radio, per ESPN NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert. “If one of those guys can take over that role and make the plays that need to be made at corner … with Nick Collins leaving, [and if] they need me to play safety, I’m not opposed to that. But I think that we have to make sure that cornerback position is going to be solidified and we’re comfortable with who is going to be out there at the corner.”
Woodson is at the point in his career where a move to safety might even be able to prolong his career. At the end of the day, if he get’s moved to safety and someone is able to fill shoes on the outside, the Packers secondary will be in good shape heading into this coming season.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
