It looks like the Raiders didn't lowball Charles Woodson. Woodson agreed to a one-year deal with Oakland on Wednesday, according to ESPN.com. The agreement comes less than one month after Woodson said he would give retirement 'serious consideration' if he didn't get an offer he liked.

"If the right numbers don't come across for myself and from the team standpoint, it's a serious consideration, at this point, that I could've played my last season in the NFL," Woodson said in February.

Instead though, the 37-year-old will be spending at least one more year in the league. The new contract marks the second straight offseason that the former first-round pick has signed a one-year deal in Oakland.

Woodson signed a one-year contract with the Raiders in May that ended up paying him $3.3 million for the 2013 season. According to CSNBayArea.com, that deal included a $1.7 million base salary, a $100,000 workout bonus and a $1.5 million bonus for playing in over 90 percent of Oakland's defensive snaps.

The 2014 season will be Woodson's 10th year in Oakland. After being taken fourth overall by the Raiders in the 1997 NFL Draft, Woodson spend eight seasons in Oakland before heading to Green Bay in 2006. Woodson then returned to the Raiders last year.

Woodson has been around long enough that he's tied for the all-time record for most defensive touchdowns. Back in Week 5, Woodson returned a fumble 25-yards for a score that gave him his 13th career defensive touchdown.

Not to mention, Woodson also has a few other achievements under his belt like a national championship at the college level (Michigan), a Heisman Trophy (1997), an NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award (1998), an NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award (2009) and eight Pro Bowl appearances.
