Free-agent defensive back Charles Woodson says NFL teams think he's too old, and that's why he remains unemployed six weeks after the Green Bay Packers cut him. "I'm 36, so of course I'm considered ancient in the game right now, and teams are looking for younger players and trying to make their rosters younger," Woodson said on NFL Network. "If you're an older guy, they kind of push you to the side, and they'll maybe look at you much later on down the road, when I guess they figure they can get you much cheaper." Woodson says his camp has put out word that he's interested in finding a new team, but so far that interest hasn't been reciprocated. "Nothing right now, nothing substantial. I'm just waiting around. We put feelers out, just to see where everybody's at, but there's not much right now," Woodson said.
