Woodson joins 10-TD club


Charles Woodson intercepted a pass and returned it 48 yards for a touchdown during the Green Bay Packers' 28-26 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 4 action on Sunday. In doing so, he became just the third player in National Football League history to have 10 career interception returns for touchdowns.

He joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Rod Woodson and the New Orleans Saints Darren Sharper in the select group of defensive backs to have had 10 or more touchdowns off interception returns. Woodson is the all-time leader with 12 followed by Sharper with 11.

Originally drafted as the fourth overall pick of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders, the former Heisman Trophy winner out of Michigan scored his first two interception return for TDs while a member of the Raiders. He signed with the Packers as a free agent in 2006.
