  Packers | Charles Woodson could move to safety    Wed Jan 18, 10:24 AM

The Green Bay Packers may consider asking CB Charles Woodson to move to safety in 2012, if FS Nick Collins (neck) is unable to return from a neck injury. However, that is not a given because Capers thinks moving Woodson out of a corner position would allow the opposition to take advantage of matchups against CB Sam Shields, the cornerback who would replace Woodson outside. 'Then you have to decide who you put in outside,' Capers said of replacing Woodson at corner. 'One thing about Charles out there at corner, people if they're going to try to run the ball out there, they're always going to try to crack (on the linebacker) and make that corner try to tackle. It doesn't take long for people to say, 'OK, who are we going to make tackle?' We don't worry about Charles.'
