Jeff Gross/Getty Images(ALAMEDA, Calif.) — Charles Woodson is back in silver and black.

The 36-year-old defensive back signed a one-year contract with the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, reuniting Woodson with the team that drafted him.

The contract is worth a maximum of $4.3 million, and includes a $700,000 signing bonus.

Woodson played his first eight NFL seasons in Oakland, but played the last seven seasons for the Green Bay Packers. While in Green Bay, Woodson won the 2009 Defensive Player of the Year and a Super Bowl. He was cut in February, after a season where he missed nine games because of a broken right collarbone.

Woodson, an eight-time Pro Bowler, has 921 tackles, 17 sacks, 29 forced fumbles, 55 interceptions, 11 touchdowns and 182 passes defended in 206 NFL games.
