Three weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers released safety Charles Woodson, freeing up some salary cap space. Since then, teams have called to judge Woodson's interest in joining them. According to an ESPN report today, the Miami Dolphins are included in that group of teams.
The report, which was confirmed by the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, states that the Dolphins are joined by the Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets, and New York Giants as teams that have made calls to Woodson. Of course, there are ties to Woodson with the Dolphins, mainly in former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin entering his second year with Miami as their head coach.
Of course, Woodson is nearing the end of his career. He will turn 37 during the season this year, and will likely be looking to play for a Super Bowl contender this season, which, unfortunately, the Dolphins are not seen as being, yet.
He also has health concerns entering this year, after missing most of the 2012 season with a broken collarbone.
The Dolphins have stated they want to build through the draft, and are thought to be targeting younger players in free agency. Woodson does not fit either of those categories.
Will the potential future Hall of Famer end up in Dolphins colors next year? Not likely. But, the team is at least making phone calls to see if it could happen.
