    Danny Woodhead has a new home: he's agreed to a two-year deal with the Chargers, reports @MikeReiss.

    Hopefully this means a bigger role for Vereen.

    I'd be lying if I said I'm too torn up about it. I like the kid, but between Vereen and Washington, it shouldn't be too hard to replace his production. Best of luck to him, and I hope he got a lot of money from them. I'm sure Rivers will love having him playing the part of a poor man's Darren Sproles

    We moved on with Washington. Woodhead moved on. And yes, we all expect to see Vereen with more reps.

    That sucks to see him go but I'm confident Vereen can take his place + do even more

    This puts the Leon Washington signing into more perspective. Looks like Shane Vereen will need to improve upon his pass protection this offseason if he wants to stake claim to that 3rd down back role.

    Thank you, Danny Woodhead, for all of your contributions to the Patriots' organization. Best of luck in San Diego, buddy.

    I felt that Vereen was a more dynamic and gifted player. But, the real writing on the wall was the Washington signing.

    I liked Woodhead, but he will not be missed.

    Unless you're Danny's mom or sibling it's kind of ridiculous to have this reaction to him leaving the team.

    Let's get more explosive players on the field, the more playtime Vereen gets, the better.

    It's a good fit for him and them. They've missed having a Darren Sproules type. Good luck DW hopefully they don't burn your jersey too.

    This one stings. I'm glad he has found himself an increased chance to make some money though.

    Thats a good spot for him.
    He really was not necessary here any more.
    Great job as a Patriot, and will probably do well in SD.

    Re: Woodhead to Chargers?

    Once Washington was signed I knew Woody's time was gone ....Just like Welker,I absolutely loved watching the little guy run through guys three times his size and his speed was tremendous as well

    I'll miss you Woody :(

    I'll wait to see the $$ until I judge whether or not we should have kept him.

    I don't agree that the writing was on the wall with Washington being signed. Washington was signed to be a KR/PR. The signing of Washington pumps more pressure on Demps than anyone else.

    I think that Vereen's improvement last year was more indicative of the Pats possible willingness to let Woodhead go.

    Woodhead rocks !
    Good luck Danny.
    I have a Woodhead shirt I won in the Patriots $5 lottery ticket thing.
    I will not be burning it.

    I hope so.

    Bummer. I root for the team, not really any individual player so much, except for some exceptions. There are some guys where you say, "I'm really glad we have this guy." Woody was one of them. Sad to see him go -- though not necessarily because it's the wrong move just because I like him.

    I'll miss those 6 or 7 plays each year where it's third down and you think a guy can't possibly get enough YAC to move the sticks, but Woodhead ducks and dives just enough to just pick up the first. It always seemed like Brady threw a TD pass to end all the drives when that happened.

    Washington is also a terrific receiver, 3rd down back and can play in the slot.
