Charles Woodson’s First Interception Helps Him Join Exclusive Club

Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson does not seem to be shaken by his age at all.

The 38-year-old picked off Browns quarterback Josh McCown for his 1st interception of the 2015 season, giving him at least one interception for all of the 18 years he has played in the National Football League, with his career high of interceptions in a single-year being nine and the low one.

The interception also helped seal the Raiders’ 27-20 victory over the Browns, and it helped Woodson join an exclusive club.

Woodson joined Darrell Green as the only two players in NFL history to have an interception for eighteen straight seasons. Woodson has recorded more interceptions in a single-season than Green has, and if Woodson decides to play two more years, and records an interception in each of those years, he would be the only player in NFL history to have a interception in twenty-straight seasons.

Woodson now has 61 career interceptions, sitting tenth on the all-time list. He would nineteen more to tie Paul Krause for the most interceptions in NFL history with 81.
