NAPA -- Charles Woodson will resume his Raiders career wearing his familiar No. 24.

Cornerback Tracy Porter, who wore No. 24 after being signed as an unrestricted free agent, said on his Twitter account Wednesday: ``Well, you Raider fans . . . your guy has 24. It was TAKEN from me and given to him. #congrats . . . too funny how this biz works.''

Porter added a second tweet that said, ``Not mad at all. It's just the principle and the way it was handled . . . said my piece, now back to football.''

Woodson wore No. 24 during his first seven seasons with the Raiders before being assigned No. 21 with the Green Bay Packers. With No. 24 taken after signing with Oakland as a free agent, Woodson revisited his college days at Michigan and wore No. 2 in practice.

NFL rules mandate defensive backs must wear jersey numbers from No. 20 through No. 39.

Woodson owns a Napa-based wine company called ``Twenty Four Wines.''

Woodson and Porter had seemed to take the number issue in good fun during minicamps and OTAs, with Woodson talking about potential ``negotiations'' to get his number back.
