I personally believe that Charles Wilson should retire from the Oakland Raiders because his time with that particular team has come to a close. Things like this happen all the time within the sports community and we have learned to move on from events like this in the past. Charles Wilson had an amazing career with the Raiders and he will continue to do so with whatever he plans to do next.
Playing a professional sport is a taxing and demanding profession Players spend 90% of their lives on the road, they are constantly in training, and they get to spend very little time with their families. It is no surprise that after years of this lifestyle, that their performance in their sport will begin to suffer. Charles Woodson has not been in his prime for years, and it is time for his to retire. Go spend some time with your family, Charlie!
Yes, Charles Woodson should retire since he'd already made the decision that it is time for time to leave professional football. He is smart in that he is choosing to leave while he is at the peak of his game. Without doubt a first-ballot Hall of Famer Woodson will be remember for what he brought to the game of professional football.
Charles Woodson is definitely old by football standards. He also plays one of the hardest positions in the NFL. By any standards, Woodson is still playing well. He has earned the right to retire when he thinks the time is right. If he wants to keep playing, then he definitely should.
