06:57 AM ET 07.25 | On the upside, Raiders fans with Charles Woodson jerseys won't have to trade them in -- at the expense of cornerback Tracy Porter. Porter was wearing No. 24 at offseason workouts and wasn't too keen on giving it up to new teammate and former Raider Charles Woodson, who was signed in May. It wasn't clear if Porter was holding out for more money from Woodson for the number, or just didn't want to give it up. ... But that's no longer an issue, as Porter tweeted on Wednesday afternoon: "Well you Raiders fans...your guy has 24. It was TAKEN from me and given to him. #congrats .....too funny how this biz works." And then, after some responses from fans: "Not mad at all...it's just the principle and the way it was handled.....said my piece, now back to football."

At least he didn't write "TOOKEN". But he did mess it up with "piece". Now, back to sarcasm.

It's Woodson bro... Shut up and stop whining.

Actually, "speak your piece" is correct. "Hold your peace" is the other spelling appropriate in the different idiom.

You have been grammatically one-upped by a cornerback. No more decaf for you.

Damn, I hate when I'm wrong. Which happens very rarely, if you count often as rarely.

Dueling had it's privileges. Last man standing got to tweet. The other guy? not so much.

He can always sell it to Woodson, for cheap.....

Since he wore it at the off season workouts, I hope he washed it before giving it to Woodson. You have to respect a guy who will give you the shirt off his back.

Ha! Who wants to bow down to a future HOFer? Obviously not Porter.

Gotta think they'll be better than that. Check their schedule.

At last, we get to see if Matt Flynn can actually play.
