Outside of his broadcasting duties with NFL Network, Woodson took a turn in the broadcast booth, serving as an analyst for two games on the NFL on FOX in 2008 and a pair of games for his alma mater, Purdue University, for the Big Ten Network last year.

In August 2009, Woodson received the highest honor bestowed upon an NFL player by being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Woodson, elected in his first year of eligibility, joined WR ‘Bullet’ Bob Hayes, G Randall McDaniel, DE Bruce Smith, LB Derrick Thomas and Bills owner Ralph Wilson, Jr. in the Hall’s 2009 induction class.

Woodson is known as one of the league’s all-time talents at defensive back, being named to the NFL’s 75th Anniversary Team. He holds the NFL record in career interception return yardage (1,483) and touchdowns (12) and ranks third all-time in career interceptions (71). Woodson also was the first player in NFL history to make the Pro Bowl as a cornerback, safety and kick returner and was part of the All-NFL team for the 1990s.

Woodson began his NFL career in Pittsburgh, playing for the Steelers from 1987-1996. He then signed with the 49ers in 1997 and moved on to Baltimore from 1998-2001 where he was a member of the Ravens 2000 Super Bowl championship team. Woodson played his final two seasons in Oakland and retired from football in 2003. In six of the 17 years Woodson played in the NFL, his teams finished first in their respective division.

A two-time All-American at Purdue University, Woodson was the No. 10 overall selection in the 1987 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
