39. Charles Woodson

Sandwiched between his two stays as an Oakland Raider, future Hall of Fame Defensive Back, Charles Woodson gave the Green Bay Packers seven good years.  Woodson would help the Packers win Super Bowl XLV and was a two time First Team All Pro as a Packer.  In those two years, he would lead the NFL in Interceptions.

Charles Woodson

There were a lot of expectations on Charles Woodson when he entered the NFL.  At the University of Michigan he became one of the few defensive players to win the Heisman, so when he was drafted fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders he was expected to make an immediate impact.

He did.

Woodson would win the Defensive Rookie of the Year and went to four straight Pro Bowls establishing himself as one of the top Corners in the League.  While he would become disenchanted with upper management, he changed teams and moved to Green Bay, where he had another string of four consecutive Pro Bowls, won the Defensive Player of the Year (in 2009) and helped the Packers win the Super Bowl.  It was also in Green Bay where he would lead the league in picks, a feat he accomplished twice while patrolling the Frozen Tundra.

Fittingly, he would finish his career in Oakland earning his ninth Pro Bowl in his final season.

Charles Woodson to retire at the end of the season


A major retirement will take place at the end of the season as Oakland Raiders, Safety, Charles Woodson, has stated that this will be his final season in Professional Football.

Woodson spent the majority of his career with the Green Bay Packers and he helped them with a Super Bowl.  Eight times, he was named to the Pro Bowl and three times, a first team All Pro.  Woodson was also named the Defensive Rookie of the Year and in 2000, was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

There are many who have named Charles Woodson as the best Defensive Back of his era and his Hall of Fame chances are very good.  Woodson will be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2021.

Overall Woodson has played 252 Games (with two to go) and has 20 Quarterback Sacks, 65 Interceptions with 11 of them returned for Touchdowns. 

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to thank Charles Woodson for the memories and we don’t put it past him to created one more in the two games remaining in the season.

The Green Bay Packers will induct Charles Woodson and Al Harris to their HOF

Regular visitors of Notinhalloffame.com know that we are slowly working on the top 50 of every major team in the NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB. Once that is done, we intend to look at how each team honor their past players and executive.  As such, it is major news to us that the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame will be inducting former players, Al Harris and Charles Woodson.

After spending five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Al Harris would arrive in a trade to Green Bay before the 2003 Season.  Playing at Cornerback, Harris would secure two Pro Bowl Selections (2007 & 2008) and was regarded as one of the better man-to-man coverage specialists in the league.  Statistically speaking, Harris had 14 Sacks, running two of them back for Touchdowns.

Charles Woodson was the Heisman Trophy winner in 1997 and he was drafted fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders.  Like Harris, Woodson played at Cornerback and he would join Green Bay in 2006 as a Free Agent.  Woodson played seven seasons with the Packers, and he would be named to the Pro Bowl in four straight seasons (2008-11).  In 2009 and 2011, he would lead the NFL in Interceptions and was a First Team All-Pro, with the first of those seeing Woodson win the Defensive Player of the Year Award. Woodson would overall record 38 Interceptions and 11.5 Sacks in Green Bay, while helping them win Super Bowl XLV.  He would rejoin Oakland in 2013.

The official induction ceremony will happen on April 18, 2020.
