The Green Bay Packers will release 2009's Defensive Player of the Year, Charles Woodson, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported.
"They're getting ready to release him. It's part of the business," agent Carl Poston said. "I just talked to him. He sounds like he has a lot of football left.
"He'd like to go play for a contender, win another Super Bowl."
Woodson was due $9 million in 2013 and would count $10 million against the cap. He's just not worth that any longer.
Woodson moved to safety last season as his cover skills declined. The Packers went with the cornerback trio of Tramon Williams, Sam Shields and rookie Casey Hayward. They have young talent in safeties Morgan Burnett, M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian.
