As we covered on Buffalobills.com, veteran DB Corey Graham will be lining up at safety throughout the 10 OTA sessions this spring in an effort to be ready to play safety if the defensive staff determines that’s where he can help the team the most. It may help that Graham’s favorite player as a young up and comer himself is Oakland S Charles Woodson, a player who made the corner to safety transition a successful one.
Woodson transitioned to the safety position in 2012 after 14 seasons at cornerback. He’ll be playing his 18th NFL season this fall with Oakland, his fourth at safety. Graham calls Woodson his favorite all-time player and has met him a couple of times, but did not have the courage to really bend his ear. Now as he undertakes the task of learning to play the safety position, he admits that a phone call to Woodson might not be a bad idea.
“I’ve only talked to him like two times in my life,” said Graham of Woodson. “I was at the Pro Bowl and his locker was right next to mine and I still I’m just that type of person that didn’t want to open up to him. He’s my favorite player and I didn’t even say too much to him other than little talk. It would be interesting to try to talk to him and pick his brain a little bit.”
