Earlier this week, Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson announced his retirement from the NFL after 18 seasons. To help end his career in style, the long-time defensive back may get to do something that he hasn’t done since his days at Michigan.
For the first time, Woodson may line up at wide receiver during his final home game on Thursday night against San Diego.
“That’s been in discussions ever since we started the season,” Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said via Silver and Black Pride. “We may have something up our sleeve. [Thursday against the Chargers] would be a good time to do it.”
“It’s Charles Woodson’s last game at home. Looking to put out a great performance in honor of him.”
It would be one of the coolest sights to see an all-time great line up on the outside, and catch a pass from Derek Carr. That being said, imagine if it were a touchdown pass? The black hole would go absolutely bananas for the moment. A pick-six would also be pretty great to see.
Thursday is going to be a must-watch event just for that possibility alone. Though, you should watch anyway to soak up the final moments of a first-ballot Hall of Fame career.
