I only have been at NFL Network for about six weeks and haven’t yet had the opportunity to work with Rod Woodson, but I feel like I already know him from the way everyone speaks about him.
Some Hall of Famers are always working. Ozzie Newsome, legendary tight end and accomplished general manager of the Baltimore Ravens, swung over to the green rooom area here off to the side of the stage where the Hall of Famers sit at Fawcett Stadium.
