Woodson also received strong interest from the Denver Broncos but told the NFL Network that their offer wasn't strong enough, even though their roster is far superior to that of the rebuilding Raiders.
"I came into the talks with Denver knowing exactly what I wanted," he said. "Even though I want to win a championship, I still want to make the business part of it right. Everybody talks to me as if they want me to come in and do all of these things but they don't want to treat me as a guy that is going to do all of those things.
"Those talks of course broke down, didn't happen and I left Denver and I got here to Oakland. … You can either take what they give you or you can say, 'Nah, I'll do something different,' and that's the way it went," he said.
