Some of the best comments from the Seahawks Monday

Charles Woodson still durable at age 38
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Raiders got an early jump on free agency Monday, signing veteran safety Charles Woodson to a contract extension. Woodson was one of the Raiders' defensive leaders in 2014 when he led the team in tackles and interceptions. The 38-year-old was also the only member of Oakland's starting secondary to play in all 16 games after injuries sidelined Tyvon Branch and cornerbacks Tarell Brown and Carlos Rogers. The former Heisman Trophy winner and 2009 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Woodson was scheduled to become a free agent in March.

49ers six players away from Super Bowl?
The San Francisco 49ers played in three straight NFC title games, with a Super Bowl appearance sandwiched in the middle, from 2011 through 2013. So clearly, they were only a break or two, a play here or there, away from returning to Super Sunday, no? Hey, even ESPN NFL analyst Jeff Saturday said the Niners were the team with the most talent on its roster to NOT make Super Bowl XLIX. A Pro Football Focus project, though, took it a step further by analyzing the 28 teams that played in conference championship games from the 2007 through 2013 seasons and found that “on average, 40 percent of those rosters were composed of good/elite players (you had to play 250-plus snaps to qualify).
