Breaking News:

RB Woodhead bolts Patriots for Chargers

The SportsXchange

Tom Brady lost another offensive weapon from his arsenal Friday when free-agent running back Danny Woodhead signed a two-year contract with the San Diego Chargers.

Woodhead's move to San Diego, which was announced by the Chargers, comes on the heels of slot receiver Wes Welker also leaving Brady and the New England Patriots for an AFC West team. Welker signed with the Denver Broncos on Thursday.

As a dual-purpose back, Woodhead totaled 301 yards on the ground and 446 receiving yards and scored seven touchdowns for the Patriots last season.

Woodhead, 28, is expected to complement San Diego running back Ryan Mathews and fill a role similar to Darren Sproles when he was with the Chargers.
