Raiders | Best of the Best

Steve Corkran reports for the Contra Costa Times Oakland Raiders CB Charles Woodson wants to elevate his status as one of the league's better cornerbacks. For his first three seasons, Woodson got by on talent and instincts. This year Woodson will be a more polished version of the player who in the past flashed brilliance occasionally but rarely sustained it for a long stretch. Woodson now wants to be known as the best cornerback in the league, not just one of the best. "Charles is beginning to understand the game of football," CB Eric Allen said. "He's self-motivated," coach Jon Gruden said. "He's really focused on being the best defender in football."
