Charles Woodson to be inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame

Wausau, Wis. (WAOW) -- Charles Woodson will forever be enshrined in Canton, Ohio.

The former Packers defensive back learned Saturday night he'll be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2021 class.

The first-ballot defensive back won a Super Bowl with Green Bay, and earned defensive rookie of the year honors in 1998 and defensive player of the year honors in 2009.

Woodson's 17-year career spanned three decades, where he spent his time playing for the Oakland Raiders and the Green Bay Packers.

Woodson's nine interceptions in 2009 as a member of the Packers is second most in franchise history in a single season, and he's one of just three players in NFL history to record 25 or more interceptions with two teams.

He holds franchise records for the most touchdowns on interceptions (nine) and the most defensive touchdowns (10).

He led the league in interceptions in both 2009 and 2011.
