Ladarius Green 24

Green was considered the heir apparent to the throne when Antonio Gates decided to hang it up. He is blessed with great speed and athleticism for his size, but he wasn’t able to breakout last season. Mike McCoy had hoped to get him more action during the season, but he never stepped up to make more plays.

Ladarius is in the final year of his rookie deal. He needs to show his worth to the rest of the league in the coming season. He needs to produce.

I don’t know why the team didn’t get him more opportunities on offense. With his speed and size, he seemed like a target that we could use more often on offense. We will see what the team does with him next season.
