Woodson visit postponed

Free agent defensive back to visit next week

Free agent defensive back Charles Woodson postponed a visit that was to take place Thursday and Friday to early next week, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

The Packers, who are about $20 million under the salary cap, are poised to make a run at the former Oakland standout. The only other team Woodson, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, apparently has drawn interest from is Tampa Bay.

"If we're talking to him, we're serious," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said during the league meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Green Bay views the versatile Woodson, 29, as a cornerback who would be an upgrade over inconsistent incumbent Ahmad Carroll on the left side. At the time of Woodson's visit, however, the team will have to get assurances that a recent history of injuries -- he missed the last 10 games in 2005 because of a broken right leg -- won't continue to nag him.
