07:47 AM ET 05.18 | The goal for the Giants for the upcoming season was to re-fortify a sagging defense while also getting younger and more athletic. Renewed interest in former star defensive back Charles Woodson won't make the Giants younger but certainly would add to their experience and pedigree. The Giants showed some initial interest in the 36-year old Woodson after the Packers released him in mid-February and, according to ESPN, are again showing some interest. An ESPN report stated that Carl Poston, Woodson's agent, sent the following update: "The Giants have just put their toe in the water again for Charles Woodson." Woodson hasn't attracted much interest since hitting the open market. The 49ers, Panthers and Raiders sniffed around and this week he visited with the Broncos but left Denver without a contract. Woodson admitted earlier this month that teams view him as "ancient."

Everyone is interested in Woodson, even the Packers, however it seems no team is willing to offer Woodson what Woodson thinks he is worth considering his age, loss of speed, and injury prone last few seasons. His locker room presence is worth the league minimum. His on filed presence, not as much.

He's a smart guy is worth a lot in the huddle, especially in the Nickle!!! Good move for Giants, if they part with some Bread!

Won't happen ! This is just his agent throwing stuff out there trying to create a market. The Giants need corners, not a safety, and that is all he is at best anymore.

Too old, too fragile, too expensive, He would have to play for the veterans minimum, one year contract.

Agreed.

My first thought on this topic was how far removed it is from the Giant's standard MO.

Why don't they sign Brian Urlacher too while they're at it? He's got lot's of experience too.

Shocker! Woodson signs with DETROIT.

Maybe he can become a receiver for Tebow?

He'd likely have to play in the Arena league to make that happen.

the Patriots should sign him as a wide receiver. Even at his age, he can run two or three yards, which is the average Patriot pass route distance.....
