The San Diego Chargers made a few moves this offseason that have helped them get to the position that they are in now. They brought in players like Keenan Allen, D.J. Fluker, Manti Te’o, King Dunlap and Derek Cox onto the roster this offseason. With all those additions, the Chargers greatest addition was the signing of Danny Woodhead from the New England Patriots.
Woodhead is a football player. He just gets the job done. Line him up on the field and he will produce. He has been huge for the offense. Philip Rivers loves having him on offense.
He is that Darren Sproles option on offense for Philip. When Philip needs to find someone to dump the ball off to, he can always rely on Woodhead. Woodhead can line up in the slot or at receiver or in the backfield and be productive at whatever role he is put in. He is that utility knife for Philip Rivers and the offense.
When he lines up in the backfield, he is a nightmare for defenses to cover in the passing game. He is too quick coming out of the backfield for linebackers to cover. He is a tough player to cover for anyone on defense.
He has been a huge addition to the team. Love his toughness on offense and love his versatility. He has helped the team turn things around.
