Charles Woodson would play any scheme for $100 million
And the beat marches on.
Former Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington on the radio show he hosts with Chad Dukes on 106.7 The Fan in D.C. continues to find NFL players to weigh in on the Albert Haynesworth show.
Earlier it was current Redskins linebacker Rocky McIntosh. Now, it’s the reigning NFL defensive player of the year, Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson.
“I think the consensus is that nobody can understand how you can get $100 million and not work on playing whatever system it is,” Woodson said, according to SportsRadioInterviews.com. “I don’t care 3-4, 4-3, some 5-2, I don’t care. Who in the NFL wouldn’t want $100 million?
“I’m not a scheme guy. For me, I’m not a scheme guy. It doesn’t matter what scheme I’m in, I’m coming to play football. If a team said, ‘Hey, we want to pay you $100 million and we want to switch to a 3-4, what do you think?’ It doesn’t matter, I’m coming to play.”
What’s interesting is there was some concern about how Woodson and fellow cornerback Al Harris would react to the change in Green Bay last season when the Packers moved from a 4-3 scheme to a 3-4. The consensus was Woodson and Harris would not play as well in a scheme in which they couldn’t play as much press man. Turns out, Woodson is right when he says he’s not a scheme guy. He played just fine in the 3-4, as did Harris before his season-ending knee injury.
Haynesworth, though, is a scheme guy. He’s playing the me scheme right now.
