Charles Woodson figured there would be a little more action for him in free agency.

The 36-year-old former standout for the Green Bay Packers has yet to find a new home and defensive backs have not been getting blockbuster deals in free agency as a general rule. He has visited the San Francisco 49ers but nothing has materialized to this point.

I thought it would be a little more interest," Woodson said during an appearance on NFL Network. "I think, looking back, this is my second time in free agency and I've kind of been shunned both times. So I guess this time around, I'm a little more patient with it and just waiting around to see what happens.

"I don't take it personal. I understand how the game goes, I've seen it for 15 years now, and I've seen how it works. Just got to have a little patience."

Woodson will be able to help a team as a safety and possibly in a part-time role as a nickel cornerback. Surely, he is seeking to hook on with a contender at this point in his career. It will be interesting to watch and see what plays out for him.
