When the Chargers signed running back Danny Woodhead as a free agent last March, they were hoping he could come in and add some spark to their offense. And through the first seven weeks of the season, Woodhead has not disappointed and is one of the main reasons this team is sporting a 4-3 record entering the bye week. As they prepare to face the Redskins this Sunday, Woodhead ranks second on the team with 172 yards rushing with one touchdown and third on the team with 40 receptions for 314 yards and three touchdowns – he also leads the team in YAC (yards after catch) with 271 yards. Prior to their bye week, Woodhead answered a few questions from MP reporter Art Garcia Jr.
AG: What are your thoughts having signed with the Chargers as a free agent?
DW: It felt like it was a good opportunity because I liked what both Tom (Telesco) and Mike (McCoy) were starting and it just felt like a good fit for me.
AG: Did you get any other offers while you were out on the free agent market?
