San Diego Chargers sign RB Danny Woodhead to two-year contract

Woodhead spent past 3 seasons with Patriots

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Chargers Friday announced the signing of running back Danny Woodhead.

Woodhead, 28, spent the past three seasons with the New England Patriots.

The Chargers signed the 5-8, 200-pound Woodhead to a two-year contract, but financial details were not immediately disclosed.

"We are really excited to add Danny to our football team," said General Manager Tom Telesco. "Not only does he add a different dynamic to our offense, but he has all the intangible qualities that we are looking for in the players who we want to become San Diego Chargers. Danny is smart, he's tough and he has a passion for the game. We feel his versatility and playmaking ability will be an upgrade for our offense."  
 
In 2012 with the Patriots, the Chadron State product was their second-leading rusher with 76 carries, 301 yards and four touchdowns, while catching 40 passes for 446 yards and three scores and returning a pair of kickoffs for 43 additional yards.
 
Woodhead is the team's fifth unrestricted free agent signing this week. The Chargers signed T King Dunlap, G Chad Rinehart, TE John Phillips and CB Derek Cox since free agency began Tuesday.
