by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (2/28/14) Defensive back Charles Woodson wants to return to the Raiders in 2014, and both general manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen have said they want the 16-year veteran back, reports ESPN.
But if Woodson does not receive what he considers a fair contract offer from Oakland he said he is ready to retire.
"If the right numbers don't come across, for myself and from the team's standpoint, then it's a serious consideration. ... I could have played my last season in the NFL," Woodson told SiriusXM NFL radio on Thursday. "So that's definitely something that I think about. I do plan on playing another year. Hopefully something can get done with the Raiders, but if not, then I've got to take a real hard look at last year being the last one."
Woodson, 37, played all but seven defensive snaps last season. He finished with 97 tackles, third on the team, with two sacks, an interception, three forced fumbles and two fumbles recoveries.

Peyton Manning carved up the defense for 266 yards and four touchdowns in one half, before Denver rested its starters during the final two quarters. The defense recorded two sacks but were unable to force a turnover, as they permitted 458 yards of total offense in a 34-14 defeat.

The Raiders DST has a lot of work to do before Fantasy owners can count on them. In 2012, the Raiders were among the worst DST options with just 117 Fantasy points in a standard league. They had only 11 interceptions, 25 sacks and nine fumble recoveries while allowing 443 points. In the past two years, the Raiders have allowed 876 points, which is ridiculously bad. Until things start to change on defense, you canít count on the Raiders DST as anything more than a bye-week replacement in the deepest of leagues. Based on the stats, itís easy to pass on the Raiders DST on Draft Day. (Updated 4/26/13)
