    Rod Woodson hired as Raiders secondary coach

    The Oakand Raiders hired Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback Rod Woodson to coach their cornerbacks, the team announced today.


    “I’m excited that we have a Hall of Fame player who is coming back to the organization,” Raiders coach Hue Jackson said. “I was extremely impressed during the interview process with his communication skills and I’m looking forward to Rod imparting his wealth of knowledge to our players.”


    Woodson ended his 17-year career with the Raiders, spending two seasons in Oakland. He lives in the Bay Area and had been working as an NFL Network analyst.


    “It’s an honor to be back with the Raiders and be able to talk to Raider players about true football,” Woodson said. “I’m looking forward to working with the organization and the challenges of the 2011 season.”


    Woodson played in Super Bowl XXXVII with the Raiders. He shares the Raiders record for most interceptions in a single game with three against the Tennessee Titans and is tied for second all-time in Silver and Black history for most interceptions returned for a touchdown with two.


    He also played in Super Bowls XXX (with Pittsburgh) and XXXV (with Baltimore).


    The Fort Wayne, Indiana native was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009. He was also named to the 1990s All-Decade Team, was named to the Pro Bowl 11 times, a record for a defensive back and in 1994 was one of only five active players to be named to the NFL’s 75th Anniversary Team.


    He was Defensive Player of the Year in 1993 and earned All-Pro First Team honors six times as a cornerback, safety and kick returner.


    Woodson established NFL records for career interception return yardage (1,483) and interception returns for touchdowns (12) during his NFL career (Pittsburgh Steelers, 1987-96; San Francisco 49ers, 1997; Baltimore Ravens, 1998-2001; and Raiders, 2002-03). His 71 career interceptions rank third in NFL history.


    The former Purdue football and track star originally entered the NFL as Pittsburgh’s first round pick in 1987.

    As long as they lose Scrabble and potentially Huff to free agency, this doesn't both me too much. Woodson can only do so much with the likes of Mike Mitchell, Chris Johnson (the cornerback version) and Stanford Routt. Though, knowing Crazy Uncle Al, if they do lose Asomugha he'll go out and sign Cro because "He's so fast, he HAS to be good!"

    I was thinking "Charles Woodson Back with the Faiders?" WTH? Wrong Woodson. Heck, knowing Cryptkeeper Al he would sign Rod to PLAY for the Faiders right now.
