Charles Woodson - 18 Years in NFL | Remembering Super Bowl XLV Halftime Emotions

Audio

Charles Woodson played college football in Michigan, where he led the Wolverines to a national championship in 1997. Woodson, a “two-way player” who played both offense and defense, won the Heisman Trophy in the same year. To date, he is the last player to win the Heisman who was not a running back or quarterback.

He was drafted by the Raiders fourth overall in the 1998 NFL Draft. In his first season with Oakland, he was selected as the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press. He was named to the Pro Bowl and earned All-Pro recognition three consecutive times (1999–2001). He also played with the Green Bay Packers when we won Super Bowl XLV before returning to the Raiders. He was the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the 2009 NFL season. He is one of the few players in NFL history to play in a Pro Bowl in three different decades (1990s, 2000s, 2010s). He is currently sixth on the all time interceptions list with 65. He’s tied with Rod Woodson and Darren Sharper for most career defensive touchdowns at 13. He’s also second all time in interceptions returned for touchdowns with 11. Today Charles is working with ESPN as an analyst.
