The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year gets the nod as the top cornerback in the division. Although listed as a cornerback, Woodson plays all over the field. Entering his 13th NFL season the 33-year-old is starting to lose some of his speed, but experience and instinct help him overcome whatever physical ability has been lost due to age. One wonders how much longer Charles Woodson can continue to play at a high level, but he has been answering that question with his play on the field since he missed ten games in 2005.
Like Woodson, Antoine Winfield is supposed to be looking at retirement, but the 33-year-old plays the position as if he were 23 years old. Some durability concerns have crept up lately, he has played in just ten games in two out of the last three years; however, he did follow up his last injury plagued season, having played in all 16 games in 2008.
It seems every year Viking fans are looking to replace Winfield with a younger corner, to that group of fans I say: enjoy this great player while you can.
