Woodson in Redskins plans?

When Rod Woodson joined Baltimore before the 1998 season, many assumed he was near the end of his career. But Woodson started four seasons, solidifying the Ravens' secondary and helping Baltimore win a Super Bowl. Then he was cut. But he might not be finished, particularly with Marvin Lewis.

Lewis said today that he has talked with Woodson about possibly joining the Redskins, which would add necessary experience at free safety. Not to mention a playmaker.

The problem, at least right now, would be cash. Could the Redskins afford Woodson? It's uncertain how much he still wants to play.

And, like Lewis said, he's not the one to make monetary decisions at Redskin Park.

But he knows what Woodson could do. Which is why Lewis told The Journal Newspapers, ''if it works out, that would be great.''

Woodson has played 15 years in the NFL, but was released in a salary-cap move by Baltimore.

So, too, was defensive tackle Sam Adams. But Lewis said ''our price and Sam's price are probably not yet together right now.''
