OAKLAND, CA - OCTOBER 06: Safety Charles Woodson #24 of the Oakland Raiders celebrates an interception against the San Diego Chargers at the 16-yard line with under a minute left in the fourth quarter to effective end the game on October 06, 2013 at O.co Coliseum in Oakland, California. The Raiders won 27-17.

The Raiders' Hall of Fame family will grow by one this weekend after Tim Brown's induction.

One longtime NFL analyst expects a current Raiders legend will add his name to that group very soon.

"To spend 17 years in this league and still be playing like a five-year veteran is amazing," wrote NFL Media's Gil Brandt. "Woodson seems to have a sixth sense for success in the secondary; he's got a knack for making big plays at opportune times and capitalizing on them."

Woodson's accomplishments are more than enough to hear his name called in Canton. Brandt, a front office legend with the Dallas Cowboys, knows No. 24 has a Hall of Fame attitude, too.

Wrote Brandt: "What impresses me the most is that he seems to be as excited to play for a Raiders squad coming off a 3-13 season as he was to play for a Super Bowl heavyweight in Green Bay."
