Charles Woodson, Broncos may be in contract negotiations

The free agent defensive back left Denver without a contract Wednesday, but all hope is not lost, according to reports.

Free agent defensive back Charles Woodson left Denver Broncos headquarters Wednesday without a contract.

While that is never the best sign, there seems to be a lot of positive energy coming out of the Denver media right now that Denver is still likely to land Woodson. A few solid guys on the Broncos beat suggest they may be negotiating even as you read this.

The Denver Post's Mike Klis characterizes the Broncos as the leader in the Woodson chase, and we agree. Multiple reports suggest Woodson is more interested in playing for a winner than cashing in late in his career.

That being said, Vic Lombardi hears Woodson is looking for a two-year deal.

While the Broncos aren't bad at the safety position (despite what one game in January might tell you), they do lack a playmaker. Woodson fits that bill. He's a ballhawk who would add a veteran presence to the Broncos safety position.

Get the deal done, Mr. Elway.
