ALAMEDA, Calif. - Charles Woodson is coming back home to Oakland. Woodson signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Tuesday to return to his original team after leaving seven years ago for Green Bay as a free agent. The move will be widely popular with Raiders fans, many of whom staked out the teams facility on Tuesday to greet Woodson on his visit and urge him to sign with the team. They got their wish a few hours after he arrived when the team announced his signing. Agent Carl Poston said Woodsons deal includes a $700,000 signing bonus and could be worth as much as $4.3 million in 2013. Woodson, the fourth overall pick in the 1998 draft by Oakland, returns to a vastly different franchise than the one he left following his eighth season with the team in 2005. Owner Al Davis died in October 2011 and the team is now run by Davis son, Mark. Kicker Sebastian Janikowski is the only player left from Woodsons eight years in Oakland that included three straight AFC West titles and a trip to the Super Bowl following the 2002 season. The Raiders havent had a winning season or a playoff berth since, adding to the fans desire to bring back Woodson and a connection to past successes. The 36-year-old was released by the Green Bay Packers in a salary-cutting move Feb. 15, with two years remaining on his contract. He had said he wanted to join a contender and visited with San Francisco and Denver but ended up signing with a rebuilding Raiders team coming off a 4-12 season. Woodson, the 1997 Heisman Trophy winner at Michigan, is an accomplished cornerback and safety who will bring veteran leadership to Oaklands secondary. The Raiders have a void at free safety after letting Michael Huff go in the off-season and also would like Woodson to tutor first-round cornerback D.J. Hayden. Woodson, an eight-time Pro Bowler and 2009 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, missed nine games during the regular season for Green Bay last year because of a broken right collarbone. He spent seven seasons with the Packers, helping them win the Super Bowl following the 2010 season. He has 55 career interceptions, 17 sacks, 24 forced fumbles and 11 interception returns for touchdowns in 206 career games. Woodson is very familiar with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, who worked in the front office in Green Bay for all but one of his years with the Packers. Late in his first season with the Raiders, McKenzie talked about the difficult situation he inherited with the Raiders compared to the one his former boss Ted Thompson got in Green Bay. "His rookie year he was able to get Charles Woodson. I would have liked to have done that," McKenzie said in November. McKenzie got his man but it remains to be seen how much Woodson has left.

The Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach George Stewart and others. Norv Turner will mark his 30th year of coaching in the NFL as the offensive co-ordinator, as widely reported for weeks, and George Edwards will be the defensive co-ordinator. Jordan Wilkins Jersey .

The Predators Get: D Michael Del Zotto.The laboratory used by Brazils National Anti-Doping Organisation (NADO) is at risk of losing its accreditation for a second time, ahead of the Rio Olympics. The World Anti-Doping Agency is due to rule on the compliance of the NADO on March 18, after it was placed on a watch-list last November.The NADO has just over one month to prove it has implemented the new WADA code, which was introduced in January last year. Sky Sports News HQ has learned that WADA met with the Brazilian authorities recently to discuss the NADOs implementation of the new code into the Brazilian legal system.Ben Nichols, WADA spokesperson, said: If the current issues are not addressed by March 18, then the NADO will automatically be declared non-compliant.Should this be the case, the countrys only WADA-accredited laboratory would also be automatically deemed non-compliant, meaning thousands of athlete samples gathered at the Olympic and Paralympic Games woould have to be transported elsewhere for testing.ddddddddddddSSN HQ understands WADA are not actively considering alternative labs, but Salt Lake City and Montreal are thought to be the most attractive options, given their distance from the Games and the volume of samples they can process.When Brazils doping lab was previously stripped of its accreditation ahead of the 2014 World Cup, samples were flown to Lausanne in Switzerland for testing.Since then, Brazilian authorities have spent £23m and undergone nine months of testing to ensure the facilitys accreditation was reinstated last May.If Brazil loses its doping lab, it would be a big blow to the organisers of Rio 2016, who must be seen to be strict on the matter in the wake of recent doping allegations from Russia.
