Danny Woodhead may have played his last down in New England

New England Patriots running back Danny Woodhead is scheduled to hit the  free agent market next month and may have played his last down with Bill Belichick and company.

A fan favorite in Foxborough over the last three seasons, RB Danny Woodhead is no certainty to return to the Patriots. Woodhead is entering free agency for the first time in his career. While we hear the Patriots definitely value Woodhead and would bring him back at the right price, running back is a deep position, with Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Brandon Bolden and Jeff Demps, who spent the 2012 season on injured reserve. The Pats generally won’t overpay for anyone, but especially running backs. They had no problem lettingBenJarvus Green-Ellis walk last year — the “Law Firm” signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the Bengals. Woodhead had seven total TDs in 2012 and 747 yards from scrimmage, but if he is looking for No. 2 running back-type money, he may be hard pressed to find that with the Patriots.

Woodhead is nice versatile back that can do a lot out of the back field and even line up as a receiver.  I don’t think he’ll have a problem finding a new home in the NFL.

    Woodhead is the only Patriot I really like and the reason I watch some of their games. If he moves on I’ll have no reason to watch the Pats since I’m not really a team fan of their’s. The Pack is my team!
