Woodhead was with the Jets for three seasons but played in only 13 games, and after being released signed with the Patriots on September 18th.  In his first season with the Patriots he rushed for 547 yards, averaging 5.68 yards a carry to set a clubrecord.

“When I look back at the season, the first word that comes to mind is whirlwind,” Woodhead told the newspaper.  “It was crazy how things were. I went from being with the Jets, to being cut, and then signing with the Patriots in a few days. Everything about the year was crazy. It was an awesome opportunity but the whole thing happened so fast. To be able to get the chance was obviously awesome; I'm just trying to make the best of it.”

Woodhead also talked about what it's been like playing for Bill Belichick and with teammate Tom Brady, and said that the chemistry within the team is nice because there are no egos that create any friction within the locker room.

“It's a great opportunity to play for a coach like (Belichick). He's one of the best at what he does. I just try to learn as much as I can from both of them. There are a lot of other great players, too. This team is great because no one is too cool for anyone. Hopefully, it's fun for everyone and that continues.”
