Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson needs just one more interception return for a touchdown to match Rod Woodson's all-time record of 12, per The Washington Post.

Set to turn 38 in October, Woodson hasn't recorded a pick-six since the 2011 season with the Green Bay Packers.

However, the former Heisman Trophy winner did record a defensive touchdown in 2013, taking a fumble recovery to the house in Week 5's 27-17 victory over the San Diego Chargers. Woodson played all 16 games of the previous campaign, recording a career-best 97 combined tackles to go along with two sacks, two fumble recoveries and one interception.

Woodson's most prolific season with regard to interception returns occurred in 2009 with the Packers, when he ran back three of his career-high nine picks for scores. He also logged four forced fumbles, recovering one, and recorded two quarterback sacks.

When all was said and done that year, Woodson came away with AP Defensive Player of the Year honors. One season later, he was an anchor on a Packers defense en route to the 2011 Super Bowl title.

Now entering his 17th NFL campaign, the eight-time Pro Bowler will look to lead the Raiders to their first playoff berth since the 2002 postseason. Currently signed to a one-year deal, the veteran free safety may soon see his window to break the all-time pick-six record come to a close.
