Hope he kept room next to the Heisman.
Charles Woodson was nominated as a modern-era nominee in his first year of eligibility on Wednesday, moving one step closer to putting a golden flourish on his remarkable career.
Woodson, who played 11 seasons for the Raiders over two separate stints, left his name all over the NFL record books as a three-time All-Pro, nine-time Pro Bowler, Defensive Rookie of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year. He retired in the top five in NFL history in interceptions (65), picksixes (11) and passes defended (183). So yes, it’s time to call the tailor for those gold jacket measurements.
BREAKING: The Modern-Era nominees for the Class of 2021 have been unveiled. The list is comprised of 130 players. Among the group are 14 first-year eligible players.
