SANTA CLARA -- A week after visiting the 49ers, defensive back Charles Woodson remains unsigned, and he's surprised by his ongoing free agency.
"I thought it would be a little more interest," Woodson told NFL Network on Wednesday. "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, a 15-year veteran, isn't the only defensive back who's visited the 49ers and remains on the market. The
Woodson wasn't on the NFL Network to talk about his future, but rather Wednesday's elimination of the "Tuck Rule," which negated his fumble-forcing sack of Tom Brady for the 2001 Raiders in the playoffs.
"Hallelujah," Woodson said, laughing. "It shouldn't have taken this long. It's been 11 years I guess now. It's about time that they turned it over. It really was just a badly explained rule from the jump, and it didn't make a whole lot of sense the way the rule was interpreted."
