According to Eskin, the interview took place on Monday.
There's not a whole lot known about Woods, but he's received praise from former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, the first guy to give Woods a job on his staff in the pros. The Vikings new head coach, Leslie Frazier, has also been quick to dish out the praise for Woods.
The results, however, have not backed up their kind words. It's been long-known that the secondary was the weak link of the Vikings, and without Antoine Winfield -- who was a great player long before Woods entered the picture -- the Minnesota secondary would have been a bottom-half-of-the-league unit at best.
Woods has only been a professional coach since 2004 when he joined the Bucs staff. Before that he was a safety at Illinois State from 1988-1991. He then spent 11 years (starting in 1993) bouncing around from college to college before landing in Tampa Bay and leaving for Minnesota in 2006.
Interviewing Woods seems to fall into the same boat as bringing in the Chicago Bears secondary coach Jon Hoke -- just Andy Reid covering his bases.
It's unclear just how interested Reid actually is in either candidate, but it is becoming fairly obvious that Reid is looking for a secondary coach to run his defense.
UPDATE: As Bryan Brackney of Reservation for Six pointed out to me via Twitter, this could very well be a Rooney Rule interview.
