SAN FRANCISCO — Charles Woodson's representative said Thursday that the veteran defensive back's visit with the San Francisco 49ers a day earlier went well and they were just waiting to hear back from the team.

Agent Carl Poston said in a phone interview that Woodson spent all day Wednesday in sessions with the Super Bowl runner-up 49ers and was happy with the time he spent around the organization. He left the Bay Area early Thursday, Poston said.

"He enjoyed the visit and I think they enjoyed him," Poston said. "I think it went very well, but I understand they have some people in. It just depends on which way they want to go. I'm just waiting for them to get back to me."

The 36-year-old Woodson was released by the Packers on Feb. 15 in a salary-cap move. He could fill a need in the secondary after San Francisco lost safety Dashon Goldson on Wednesday when he signed a $41.25 million, five-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Woodson's Green Bay team lost at San Francisco in the NFC divisional playoffs, and the 49ers went on to reach their first Super Bowl in 18 years. They lost 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens on Feb. 3 in New Orleans.

For now, Poston will begin scheduling meetings for Woodson with other teams as he waits to hear from San Francisco's front office.

"We are working on them as we speak, nothing firm," Poston said. He didn't want to guess as to which teams Woodson might visit next.
