Aaron Rodgers calls Ex-Raider Charles Woodson best defender he ever faced

Aaron Rodgers calls Ex-Raider Charles Woodson best defender he ever faced

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has faced a multitude of impressive defensive players in his 14-year NFL career. During a recent interview at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe with NBC Sports NFL Analyst Chris Simms, Rodgers was asked which defensive player he's feared the most during his career. 

"It’s Charles Woodson,” Rodgers told Simms during an episode of "Unbuttoned."

“I got to go against him in practice for years. Nobody had better instincts, could bait quarterbacks better than him, more talent, ball skills, coverage ability, smart little nuances of the position. He’s the best. By far.”

Rodgers was teammates with Woodson with the Green Bay Packers from 2006-2012, and they helped lead the Pack to a Super Bowl victory in 2010. He grew a particular appreciation for Woodson during his time practicing against the cornerback while they were both in Green Bay.

“Charles dominated in a way I never saw anybody dominate before. The 2009 season, one of the greatest seasons I’ve ever seen,” Rodgers said. “What he did on defense, impacting the game, I’ve never seen a player impact the game that way until Aaron Donald.”

In 2009, Woodson had nine interceptions and was named the Defensive Player of the Year along with being named First-Team All-Pro. The former MVP quarterback also doesn't feel that Woodson has exhausted all of his ability on the field.

"He could probably still play today, he's in that kinda shape, you know," Rodgers told Simms.

Woodson previously has denied that he has any intention of returning to the NFL, but Raider Nation no doubt would be excited to see that No. 24 jersey back on the field in the Silver and Black.

Steph Curry wins bet with Dell at 2019 American Century Championship

Steph Curry wins bet with Dell at 2019 American Century Championship

Steph Curry got his revenge on Sunday in Lake Tahoe.

In his annual bet with his father Dell at the American Century Championship golf tournament, the Warriors superstar prevailed, finishing with a final score of 50 points. Dell finished with 40 points based on the modified Stableford scoring system.

Get ready to hear Dell sing karaoke sometime in the future.

Curry clinched the win over his dad with a birdie putt on the 18th hole and made sure Dell knew he was the loser.

After the tournament, Steph and Dell spoke to NBC Sports Bay Area about the bet.

In addition to winning the bet with his dad, Steph almost won a boat on the MasterCraft-sponsored 12th hole as he came within feet of making a hole-in-one.

If we're talking about winners, this little guy won the day by getting a golf ball from Curry himself, though the kid wasn't in the sharing mood when his friend tried to check out the ball.

Despite taking his golf game seriously, Curry was able to let go a little bit and enjoy a refreshing beer on the course.

But the best news of the day for Curry might be that he finally made the dunk that had been eluding him.

In case you're curious, former NFL quarterback Tony Romo won the tournament for the second straight year, finishing with 71 points, 10 ahead of former A's pitcher Mark Mulder. Congrats to Romo on finding the one thing he can actually win.

Steph Curry finished the second round of the 2019 American Century Championship in style.

The Warriors superstar eagled the 18th hole on Saturday and finished the round with a two-day total of 30 points, good for 14th place heading into the final round on Sunday.

Curry enters the third and final round three points behind his father, Dell.

As usual, the pair have a friendly bet on the outcome of the tournament. Last year, the loser had to jump into Lake Tahoe. This year, Dell revealed that the loser will probably have to sing karaoke at a later date.

Dell kept his distance from Steph with an incredible putt on the 18th hole to save par.

Before his eagle on 18, Steph had an eventful day. At one point, he was forced to chip onto the green from the hospitality tent.

On the 17th hole, Curry made his way to the fans on the beach and posed for a photo before running back onto the course.

Curry also made the day of one lucky fan by signing their hat.

And if this basketball thing doesn't work out for Curry, he can always become an NFL wide receiver.

Curry won't win the 2019 American Century Championship. Former NFL quarterback Tony Romo is in the lead with a score of 51 points, nine more than former MLB pitcher Derek Lowe and former tennis player Mardy Fish.

But Curry still needs to beat his dad or he will be singing a sad tune.
