It appears the Raiders have taken another step in their desire to bring free agent safety Charles Woodson back to Oakland.
Reporter Josina Anderson of ESPN tweeted the Raiders have extended a contract offer :

The Raiders would not confirm or deny the report to CSN Raiders Insider Paul Gutierrez, saying the team does not comment on contractual matters.
Multiple national reports are also saying Woodson is to meet with the Broncos today.
Woodson, who turns 37 in October, recently told NFL.com that he would play for a rebuilding team.
"When this process first started out, that was my thing -- I needed to go to a contender. I know I am towards the end of my career. At this point, I want to play football. So if it is a rebuilding stage, at this point if that is the circumstances I have to play under, then that is what I am going to do."
A shoulder injury limited the former Heisman trophy winner to just seven games with the Packers in 2012.
