NAPA, Calif. (AP) - Charles Woodson is back on the familiar practice fields in Napa once again wearing the No. 24 Oakland Raiders jersey he had for his first eight NFL seasons.
There's plenty else that has changed for Woodson and the Raiders in those seven years between his two stints in Oakland.
Woodson returned this offseason to his original NFL team to much fanfare as a far different person and player than he was when he left for Green Bay following the 2005 season.
Once a brash young star who clashed with coach Bill Callahan, Woodson returned as a respected veteran with Super Bowl-winning credentials who is being counted on to contribute with his talent on the field and his leadership off of it.
