    Translation: The Raiders apparently feel that Woodson will sign an offer sheet with another team which, as a franchise player, he has a right to do. Oakland could match the offer sheet and retain Woodson at the terms specified, or decline to match and receive a pair of first-round draft choices as compensation. Or the two teams could reach agreement on a trade for a package of draft picks and/or players


    --- This is part of an article off ESPN about Charles Woodson. But it details what can be done if a player is franchise tag'd. Maybe if the Packers are hot on Brees there still could be a chance??

    this means they have a tight grip on his balls...an insane trade or 2 first round picks=not happening.

    Not really man. You never know. I mean look at the OAK MINN trade of Moss. Yea MINN got two picks but look at the player they got. That Harris guy has been a big disappointment. The only way I see MINN coming out ahead is if they draft Miike Williams with the 7th overall pick and he pans out to be a good receiver.

    Remember, AJ Smith has his heart set Rivers being the QB of the Chargers. Stubborness can cause people to do stupid things.
