Woodson enjoyed a long NFL career, playing from 1998 through 2015, spending his time with the Oakland Raiders (1998-2005, 2013-15) and Green Bay Packers (2006-12).
A former No. 4 overall selection in the 1998 NFL Draft, Woodson was a 9-time Pro Bowl selection and a 4-time First-Team All-Pro selection. He was the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2009 and was a member of Green Bay’s Super Bowl XLV winning team.
In his career, Woodson totaled 1,105 tackles, 183 pass break-ups, 65 interceptions and 13 defensive touchdowns. He is now a member of the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Woodson is still the only primarily defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy, receiving college football’s highest honor following his 2017 season at Michigan.
