Raiders re-signed S Charles Woodson on a one-year deal.
The 37-year-old Woodson was an effective every-down safety in 2013, recording 97 tackles, one interception and three forced fumbles.

Free agent Charles Woodson is open to retirement if he doesn't like the offers he receives in free agency.
"If the right numbers don't come across, for myself and from the team's standpoint, then (retirement) is a serious consideration," Woodson said Thursday. "I do plan on playing another year. Hopefully something can get done with the Raiders, but if not then I've got to take a real hard look at this last year being the last one." Playing on a one-year, $1.8 million deal, Woodson was an every-down safety in 2013, notching 97 tackles, one interception and three forced fumbles. He'll likely have to be willing to be a part-time player if he's to return in 2014.

Coach Dennis Allen said the Raiders would like to re-sign free agent Charles Woodson.
"I think he's a guy we'd like to hopefully bring back," Allen said. "There's a business side to anything that you do, but I thought from a leadership perspective and really from a playing perspective, I thought he brought a lot to the table." There's mutual interest between the two sides. Woodson, 37, won't command a multi-year deal. He's our No. 12 free-agent safety.
