Charles Woodson is set to retire following the 2015 NFL season. Woodson recently reflected on his Hall of Fame career and made it clear he doesn’t think he could have written a better career script.
“It’s funny,” Woodson said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “I told my teammates earlier in the day if I would have been as a child, sitting down, writing the script on how it would be and how it would go, I don’t think I could have ever written it better than it actually happened.”
After 18 seasons in the NFL, there are very few players more respected than Woodson.
Woodson played for the Raiders and Green Bay Packers. The 39-year-old defensive back enters his final NFL game with 65 interceptions and 13 touchdowns. He is an eight-time Pro Bowler and a three-time All-Pro selection.
Also on Woodson’s resume is the 1998 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award, 2009 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and a Super Bowl XLV title. Woodson is also the only player in NFL history to have at least 50 interceptions and 20 sacks.
It’s safe to say that he will be remembered as one of the best defensive backs in the game.
