    Danny Woodhead's College Highlights

    NFL Pro Day

    Woodhead was not invited to the NFL Combine in 2008. Instead, he held a Pro Day and posted the following numbers:

    • 40 Time: 4.38 seconds
    • Bench Press (225 lbs.): 20 times
    • Vertical Jump: 38 ½ inches
    • Broad Jump: 10’01”
    • 20 YD Shuttle: 4.20 seconds
    • 60 YD Shuttle: 11.2 seconds

    The scouts rated him as the 28th best running back out of 181 backs eligible for the NFL draft.

    NFL Draft

    Woodhead went undrafted in the 2008 draft. Instead, he signed an undrafted rookie free agent contract to play on the New York Jets.

    NFL York Jets

    Woodhead’s time with the Jets was a rocky one. He was injured in a preseason game in 2008 and spent the season on injured reserve. The following season, Woodhead rushed for 158 yards and two touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles in another preseason game, but he was waived after the end of the preseason. The Jets resigned him to the practice squad two days later. However, later that season, they shifted him from running back to wide receiver. Woodhead was released at the start of the regular 2010 regular season.

    New England Patriots

    The Patriots signed Woodhead four days after his release from the Jets. Woodhead’s time with the Patriots went much better than his time with the Jets. He got to play due to injuries to other players and scored a 22-yard rushing touchdown against the Bills and a 36-yard TD Indianapolis Colts. He also had an 11-yard TD pass against the Dolphins. He ended the season with 97 rushes for 547 yards and 34 receptions for 379 yards. He also scored 6 touchdowns. New England signed him to two-year contract extension.

    San Diego Chargers

    San Diego Chargers (now Los Angeles Chargers) signed Woodhead as a free agent in 2013 to a two-year contract worth an annual salary of $1.75 million. He played in all 16 games in 2013. He had 429 rushing yards on 106 attempts and 605 yards on 76 receptions. The 2014 season was spent mostly on injured reserve, but he bounced back in 2015 with 366 rushing yards and 755 passing yards. The 2016 season was again lost to injury. His future going into the 2017 is now up in the air.
