Ladarius Green saw a ton of action this weekend along side of Antonio Gates. He saw that playing time because Eddie Royal was sitting on the sideline with a toe injury, but Green was productive in his time on the field. He scored the team’s only touchdown in the game and showed the flashes that the fans have been raving about. He will be the tight end for this team’s future.
His ability to stretch the field and make big plays is something that the offense lacks right now. Keenan Allen is the team’s best option in the passing game and he is seeing more and more double teams in his direction. Someone else on the roster has to step up and make a play. Green looks like he can take some of the pressure off of Allen. It would be huge for the team’s offense.
Green has a bright future for this team. He is already contributing on the field now. I like the future with him and Allen catching passes.
