Charles Woodson has admitted that he is considering retirement if the right offer doesn't come from the Oakland Raiders.

Woodson has been quoted as saying: "If the right numbers don't come across for myself and from the team standpoint, it's a serious consideration, at this point, that I could've played my last season in the NFL"

The cornerback is set to turn 38-years-old this year and requires a new contract with the Raiders to play again next season, Woodson took only a one year deal last term that was worth $3.3million with Oakland.

"When you get past a certain age, it's no longer about what you do on the field, It's about your age. They look at the age first and then what you do on the field second. There's no rush for any team to sign a veteran player. It's not just a Raiders situation. It's a league-wide deal."

Woodson has been in the league long enough to know the nuances of contract negotiations, he knows that teams are not lining up to sign players who are past their physical peak, thats why he must be patient and rely on his leadership qualities for another NFL deal.

Unfortunately for the cornerback, the Raiders continue their rebuilding phase and may look to the draft and free agency for younger players to assist in the transition the franchise is going through, it could be the last we see of Charles Woodson.
