Charles Woodson has had a storied football career. The 1997 Heisman trophy winner went on to be the 4th overall pick in the 1998 draft by the Oakland Raiders. Woodson left Oakland to join the Green Bay packers from 2006 to 2012. After winning a Super Bowl with the Pack Woodson returned to the Raiders where he finished his sure fire Hall of Fame career.

The announcement comes today that Charles Woodson will be added to Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown as an NFL Analyst. Rumors are Woodson will replace Keyshawn Johnson though ESPN has not confirmed Johnson is leaving the show. This could be the beginning of many changes for the ESPN NFL coverage as the network appears to be ready to face lift both Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown.

As a fan of Woodson this is an interesting hire in my mind. Woodson has never been very publicly outspoken and it could be a stretch for him to speak openly about players and coaches.
