Best of Woodson 2014

The best photos of future Hall of Famer Charles Woodson during the 2014 season.

2014 marked Charles Woodson's 17th year in the NFL, but even after close to two decades in the league, the future Hall of Famer showed no signs of slowing down.

He proved to be one of the most dynamic playmakers on the Oakland defense and was selected as an alternate for the 2015 Pro Bowl; so let's take a look at the other milestones Woodson reached in 2014:

During his second year back in the Silver and Black, the future Hall of Famer recorded four interceptions, his most since 2011, as well as 160 tackles and nine passes defensed, according to coaches' statistics.

By picking off Geno Smith during the team's Week One match-up against the New York Jets, Woodson became the second player in NFL history (Darrell Green – 19) to intercept a pass in at least 17 consecutive seasons.

For his career, Woodson has tallied 60 interceptions and is now the active leader in interceptions, 17 ahead of DeAngelo Hall's 43.

Woodson sacked Alex Smith for a loss of 10 yards during the Raiders Thursday Night Football win over the Chiefs at Coliseum, and with the sack, the former Michigan Wolverine became the first player in NFL history with 50 career interceptions and 20 career sacks. His 20 career sacks also makes him the leader among active defense backs.

He also returned a punt during the Thursday night contest, and by doing so at the age of 38-years and 44-days-old, he became the second-oldest player in NFL history to return a punt.

Woodson returned his second punt of the 2014 season on December 28th at Denver, at the age of 38-years and 82-days old. For the season, Woodson returned three punts for a total of 28 yards.

During the Raiders home finale against the Buffalo Bills, Woodson intercepted a Kyle Orton pass in the first quarter, the 60th of his career, and his 22nd as a Raider. With the interception, Woodson had at least four interceptions in eight seasons, tied for the most among active players (DeAngelo Hall) and tied for ninth most in NFL history.
