The Packers have confirmed they cut defensive back Charles Woodson after his seven years with the team.

“We are grateful for all that Charles has given to the Green Bay Packers over the past seven years,” general manager Ted Thompson said in a written statement released by the team. “He has been an integral part of the Packers’ success and our Super Bowl title in 2010 would not have been possible without his contributions. A once-in-a-generation talent as a player, he is also a great leader and ambassador for the organization off the field. Charles will always be a member of the Packers family and we look forward to his eventual induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We wish him and his family all the best.”

Thompson signed Woodson as an unrestricted free agent in 2006. In his seven seasons with the team, Woodson went to four Pro Bowls (in the seasons from 2008-11), was named All-Pro twice (2009 and ’11) and was chosen NFL defensive player of the year once (’09).
