In all seriousness, with Delmas visiting tomorrow AM I bet Woodson is staying because he and Baalke have a contract worked up and if Delmas doesn't agree with the 49ers offer he'll call the rams back(who already offered him a deal but he wanted to vist us still) and sign with them while we immediately ink Woodson.
So your saying that Woodson is waiting around to see if we sign Delmas? And if we do he's on the street? Gee thanks for hanging around Charles but we're gonna sign this dude.
I seriously doubt that.
As reported today, Baalke never talked $$$ with Woodson but you don't spend 8+ hours with a guy without telling him "We think you'd be a great 49er but look your going to fetch a bit of money because a. you're a future HOFer b. you're versatile c. you can lead our defense and teach the younger CBs and Ss on the roster BUT we have to cover all the angles so we will get back to you if we don't find a cheaper option."
Sorry Woodson is 37 and he's hedged his bets by saying only a handful of contenders will even pique his interest. His market is small and luckily for him will be open for days or weeks because any of the top playoff teams that lost safeties will sign him in a heart beat.
Ravens might lose Reed to the Texans, opening for Woodson
Texans lost Quinn to the Lions, might not sign Reed, opening for Woodson
Patriots have a terrible group of S and have to move McCourty to the back to shore it up, they'd gladly welcome Woodson
so on and so forth.
Look Woodson might be the best option but he is 1 or 2 year deal. We might as sign Delmas for 1-2 years for dirt cheap and if he doesn't pay off we draft the guy we want.
