12:32 PM ET 04.05 | Charles Woodson might be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame one day. But he's having a hard time finding a job this offseason after getting cut by the Green Bay Packers. "Nothing right now. Nothing substantial," Woodson said Friday on "NFL AM" when asked whether he's received any interest from NFL teams. "I'm just waiting around. We put feelers out there just to see where everybody's at. There's not much right now." Woodson took a visit to the San Francisco 49ers, but noted it wasn't a good sign when they let him leave without making a contract offer. "I went through this before in 2006 when nobody was interested in me coming out of Oakland. I'm in the same situation now. Just have to have a little patience. I'll land somewhere and help somebody win," Woodson said.

He needs to bring a chair.

Yeah, but I can think of a team that could use an experienced guy in the backfield who could mentor younger guys and still make an impact himself....

There's a couple dozen like that. At what price, though? That's the question.

I can see some team signing Woodson before the season starts to a minimum contract with incentives.

Waiting around.....that sounds an awful lot like retirement to me.

he made 7 interceptions and 2 sacks just a year ago in 2011. even with loosing the burst and top end speed he can still make some impact plays. reminds me of darren sharper a few years ago, coming from the vikings with declining numbers everyone thought he was pretty much done, the saints took a flier on him and he had one more final hurrah with 9 ints and 3 tds. wish him the best, singing with GB was the best thing to ever happen to him.
