The Green Bay Packers made their first major splash in the free-agent market this offseason, agreeing to terms with defensive back Charles Woodson yesterday. Woodson's agent, Kevin Poston, said the Packers agreed to a seven-year deal for $52.7 million, including $10.5 million in the first year of the contract. Packers general manager Ted Thompson declined comment. Woodson's signing comes a day after Brett Favre told the team he would return to play the 2006 season. Favre previously urged the team to make a "statement" in free agency, similar to the signing of Reggie White in 1993.

The Green Bay Packers released Charles Woodson on Friday with two years left on the defensive back's contract. The Packers clear about $10 million in cap space by releasing Woodson, 36. Carl Poston, Woodson's agent, said the veteran wasn't done and wants to play for a Super Bowl contender. The NFL defensive player of the year in 2009 is the only player in NFL history with touchdowns off interceptions in six straight seasons, 2006 to 2011, and he leads the league with nine touchdowns off interceptions since 2006.

He was cool and confident, as usual. That was how Charles Woodson won the Heisman Trophy. It is how he now will face life in the NFL. Michigan's All-America cornerback Woodson announced yesterday he will give up his final year of eligibility in college to enter the NFL draft. "I was thinking of this before the Rose Bowl," Woodson said at a news conference on campus. "But I just wanted to stay focused. Also, I wanted my teammates to stay focused, not worrying about Charles.

Green Bay's already-thin rushing and receiving corps took two more big hits when Ahman Green and Robert Ferguson were carted off the field with left-leg injuries during yesterday's 23-20 loss to Minnesota. Ferguson was driven from the game in the second quarter after a 44-yard reception. When he came down with the ball, he fell awkwardly and crumpled to the turf. The Packers originally said that Ferguson hurt a knee, but coach Mike Sherman announced after the game that it was an ankle.

MINNEAPOLIS - Aaron Rodgers had some competition from fearless rookie Christian Ponder. The defending champion Packers still kept their cool. Rodgers kept Green Bay unbeaten with three touchdowns and 335 yards passing, holding off the plucky Ponder in the rookie's first start to defeat the Minnesota Vikings, 33-27, on Sunday. Rodgers completed his first 13 passes and finished 24 for 30, another near-unstoppable afternoon for him. Ponder was picked off twice in the third quarter by Charles Woodson, who almost grabbed a couple more interceptions, but he kept the Vikings in it the whole game after a 71-yard completion on his first play.

Last Saturday, Charles Woodson was on the field at Michigan Stadium for 70 plays. That's 70 - 48 on defense, 16 on offense and six on special teams. And every time he was on the field, Minnesota had to either stay away from Woodson or keep the ball away from him. By staying away, the Golden Gophers succeeded only in making their attack predictable and, thus, easily handled, by Michigan's No. 1-ranked defense. But they couldn't keep the ball away, and when Woodson took a reverse from tailback Chris Howard, he was gone - 33 yards for the game's first touchdown.

Oakland Raiders coach Bill Callahan met with cornerback Charles Woodson yesterday after being criticized by the four-time Pro Bowl player. "I had a conversation with Charles today," Callahan said after practice. "It was very positive. We're moving forward. " Twice in five days, Woodson complained about the second-year coach. Woodson said Callahan, a former Eagles assistant, was stubborn and had lost control of his team, and that the Raiders were falling apart. On Monday, Callahan called the comments "inappropriate and inaccurate" and said he would deal with the situation when he was ready.

Charles Woodson said the Oakland Raiders are "falling apart" because coach Bill Callahan is too headstrong and not as good a communicator as predecessor Jon Gruden. "He just has to bend a little bit and stop being so stubborn as a person," the defensive back said after the Raiders fell to 2-6 yesterday after a 23-13 loss to Detroit. "Everybody can change a little something. You don't know everything. Nobody does. When people on your team, coming from different angles, are trying to help you as a coach, you should take that.

Charles Woodson wouldn't let host Green Bay's season slip away. The veteran cornerback forced two fumbles and picked off a pass by Tony Romo on the goal line as Green Bay's defense finally played up to its potential against a big-time opponent, beating the Dallas Cowboys yesterday, 17-7. It wasn't a pretty win for the Packers (5-4), but it might have saved their season after back-to-back demoralizing losses. "It seemed like guys had a lot of passion out there today for the game," Woodson said.

THE CINCINNATI Bengals have signed defensive end Carlos Dunlap to a 5-year contract extension worth $40 million. The Bengals announced the deal yesterday Dunlap's contract would have expired after this season, but it now runs through 2018.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers should have been feeling satisfied. With yesterday's 46-16 rout of the Oakland Raiders, the Packers brushed aside a playoff contender by halftime to win their 19th straight, moved a game away from clinching home-field advantage throughout the playoffs - and at 13-0, they kept the possibility of a perfect season squarely in sight. Instead, Rodgers seemed concerned about the health of star wide receiver Greg Jennings, who left the game with an apparent left knee injury in the third quarter.

So much for a "sack slump. " Clay Matthews twice sacked Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder on Monday night as Green Bay blew out the Vikings, 45-7. "[Monday] was no different than any other night for me," Matthews said. "It was just the fact I was able to get home. [I'm] just putting pressure on the quarterback each and every week and if he holds on to the ball when I hit him, then so be it. If not, I'm still going to take a shot. " Matthews had only three sacks prior to Sunday and the Green Bay defense in general was coming under fire for not contributing enough to the Packers' sizzling 9-0 start.

Holding a glass mug and looking the civilized gentleman, Jason Babin ripped into the NFL for the $15,000 fine he received for an illegal hit on 49ers quarterback Alex Smith and for the league's general policy when it comes to doling out financial penalties. Babin read the letter from the league to reporters surrounding his locker at the NovaCare Complex. It stated that he was fined for his third-quarter hit Sunday - which drew a roughing-the-passer personal foul at the time - that struck Smith in the "neck area.

DALLAS - The confetti is shot from the cannons, the sun rises in the morning, and the talk turns to dynasties. It is what happens at the Super Bowl, almost every year. It is not a stupid conversation, but a meaningless one. Anybody who watches the NFL knows just how hard it is to win a championship, how many things have to go right, how two or three of the wrong injuries at the wrong time can derail everything, how prosperity is an NFL team's greatest enemy. So this is not a dynasty discussion concerning the Green Bay Packers.

DALLAS - Word of the death of defense in the NFL has been greatly exaggerated, including in this very space. All season, it looked as if the Eagles had picked the perfect season to have an explosive offense and a flammable defense. After years of rules changes designed to make the game more exciting (read: higher scoring), and a more recent focus on dangerous hits - the NFL had finally come to resemble the Arena League than its nasty old fire-breathing self. After all that, the two teams that remain alive in the NFL prove that defense is very much alive.

Michael Vick's confidence hasn't been hurt by the hits he's absorbed over the last six games. His legs? That's not so clear. Vick, whose ability to perform will be crucial when the Eagles play the Packers in Sunday's first-round playoff game, was asked Monday if his bruised quadriceps is back to 100 percent after five days rest. "I'm getting there," he said. In a later interview on ESPN radio in Virginia Beach, he indicated that he had recently improved to about "75 percent. " He was far more definitive on his own attitude and whether he needs to adjust his play given the way defenses have hit him and forced turnovers in recent weeks.
