It looks like Charles Woodson’s run with the Packers is about to come to an end.

There’s been a lot of speculation about what kind of future Woodson has in Green Bay at the age of 37 with a contract set to pay him $10 million in salary and bonuses in 2013. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and other members of the team have said that they’d like to see Woodson back in green and gold, but it isn’t going to work out that way.

Friday brought a somewhat cryptic tweet from the account for Woodson’s wine business thanked Green Bay for a great run, leading to speculation that Woodson was out in Green Bay. Woodson’s agent confirmed that development to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

“They’re getting ready to release him. It’s part of the business,” Carl Poston said.

Poston said that Woodson plans to continue playing and that he’d like to sign with a Super Bowl contender. There will surely be teams interested in seeing what the former Defensive Player of the Year and frequent All-Pro has left in the tank and Woodson will be able to start having those conversations as soon as the Packers make his departure official.
