Indications are that the Packers intend to release veteran defensive back Charles Woodson.

The first indication came from the Twitter account of his winery, @TwentyFourWines, which posted: "Thank you Green Bay. It was a great run!" Followed by a picture of Woodson.

Then, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that he spoke with Woodson's agent, Carl Poston, who said: "They're getting ready to release him. It's part of the business."

Poston also told Rapoport that Woodson would like to continue playing for another Super Bowl contender.

There was no official word from the Packers, but this move seemed like a strong possibility.

Releasing the 36-year-old Woodson would give the Packers $10 million in salary cap space. Woodson, a likely Pro Football Hall of Famer for his stellar play at cornerback, moved to safety last season but sustained a broken collarbone that kept him out of the final nine games of the regular season. He returned for the playoffs.

It's unclear whether the Packers asked Woodson to take a pay cut.

We'll have more on this story throughout the day.
