GREEN BAY — Former Packers DB Charles Woodson, who retired after the 2015 season following a second stint with the Oakland Raiders, is joining the ESPN crew as an NFL analyst.

ESPN has officially announced the hire, saying Woodson will be part of the Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown shows.

Woodson played 18 seasons in the NFL, his first eight with Oakland before coming to Green Bay as a free agent in 2006. He played seven seasons for the Packers, winning the 2009 NFL Defensive Player of the Year award and a Super Bowl ring in 2010. He led the league in interceptions twice with the Packers, in ’09 (with nine) and ’11 (with seven), and he holds the Packers’ all-time record for interceptions returned for touchdowns with nine.

Woodson returned to the Raiders for three more seasons beginning in 2013 and went to his ninth Pro Bowl last month.
