I have to believe Woodson would be open to a renegotiation. There's no way that the Packers can pay him $10 million this year and stay under the cap, and I doubt that if they release him any other team would give him anything even close. Assuming he wants to play, and the Packers want him, they will work something out. It's in both Woodson's and the Packers' best interest, because like I said nobody is going to give him a huge contract at this stage of his career.

Maybe offload some of it to a postretirement team "services" position like they wanted to do with Favre.

Donald Driver is retiring from what i heard and Jennings is as good as gone,so thats 10M
who knows if they resign Erik Waldon or Brad Jones.I kind of hope they bring back Cedric Benson.He was a pretty solid RB and a good compliment to DuJuan Harris..question is will they keep James Starks?
I cant see C.W. playing in GB next year unless he takes a paycut,you are right about that for sure!
Im not sure if Woodson will take a cut.IF GB offers him lets say 3M and he feels he can sign somewhere for 4M somewhere else,he just may ask for his release or GB may just do it.

GREEN BAY—The fall was awkward, and at first the worries were real.

It turned out Bryan Bulaga had “only” fractured his hip, not dislocated it. What happened will allow the right tackle to recover and play again in 2013, provided his rehab continues to go well. What didn’t happen would have been much, much worse.

“Whenever you hear the hip injury, everybody points to the Bo Jackson injury, which I heard multiple times, even from people back home,” Bulaga said shortly after the season ended.“I think my mom asked me three or four times,‘Did you dislocate your hip?’ Because that’s what the media was projecting that I did.”

The injury occurred on a 12-yard run by Randall Cobb in Week 9 against Arizona at Lambeau Field, with 12 minutes left in the second quarter. Bulaga stumbled as he tried to get in position for a block and appeared to hurt himself as he planted his left leg to try to keep his balance.

He limped off the field holding his left hip and didn’t play another snap in 2012. Multiple evaluations and tests produced some understandable anxiety.

“I was a little bit worried about it before I actually got the results back and saw the specialist, and he kind of settled me down a little bit,” Bulaga said.“Now it’s just letting the bone heal and getting back to full strength.”

Progress on that front is positive at this point. Bulaga said his rehab is starting to “ramp up” through the winter. He still has plenty of long, arduous days in front of him, so he wasn’t going to predict whether or not he’d be on the field during OTAs or minicamp this spring.
