Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Anthony Lynn Is not a Players' Coach

Your daily dose of Chargers news & notes from around the web. Top 10 NFL RBs set to hit free agency - William MoyThe biggest question the 32-year-old Woodhead this offseason is how he recovers from a torn ACL that cost him virtually all of the 2016 season. When healthy, Woodhead has proven that he’s capable of being one of the premier pass-catching threats out of the backfield. Woodhead led all running backs with 755 receiving yards in the 2015 season, and his 1.91 yards per route run mark ranked fourth among all RBs who received at least 50 targets in 2015. A Rex Ryan disciple,...

Poll: Should the Chargers Re-sign Danny Woodhead?

Poll: Should the Chargers Re-sign Danny Woodhead?

We told you what we think, but what do you think the Chargers ought to do? Over the weekend, Ryan Doyle and Louis Gorini made cases for and against the Los Angeles Chargers re-signing running back Danny Woodhead. Ryan suggested that if the Chargers are intent on featuring Melvin Gordon (and they should be) they need to let Woodhead walk in free agency: If the Chargers plan on using Woodhead as much as they have in the past, Gordon is going to be playing about 50 percent of the time. That’s not how a number one back should be used in the NFL. Maybe it’s not fair to Woodhead that his...

Why the Los Angeles Chargers Should Re-Sign Danny Woodhead

Danny Woodhead is an UFA this offseason and the Chargers need to make sure they lock him up. The Chargers had thought they found their running back of the future when they drafted Ryan Mathews. Mathews was supposed to be the heir successor of Chargers great (and Hall Of Famer); LaDainian Tomlinson. However, as the fumbles and injuries piled up for Mathews (along with the poor play); it was easy to see why the Chargers needed to go back to the drawing board at the running back position. Enter Melvin Gordon. At the time, I was probably the only one that supported the selection of the former...

Los Angeles Chargers Should Move On From Danny Woodhead

Los Angeles Chargers Should Move On From Danny Woodhead

The Chargers need to find a new answer at the backup running back position. After a breakout season, Melvin Gordon has solidified himself as the number one back for the Chargers. The man who has spelled him for the past two seasons has been Danny Woodhead. Although he is a fan favorite and great receiver out of the backfield, there isn’t a need for him anymore. The Chargers are going to have a very different situation at running back next year. Gordon is going to get the bulk of the carries and whoever is the backup may see the field for no more than 10-15 snaps a game. Although Woodhead...

Should Danny Woodhead be a top priority for Chargers?

The Los Angeles Chargers don't have many "key" free agents in 2017. It's fair to say that OLB Melvin Ingram is at the top of the Chargers' list, but should RB Danny Woodhead be, too?According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers hope to keep Woodhead. Woodhead was ...

Chargers hope to re-sign Danny Woodhead

The San Diego Chargers "hope" to re-sign running back Danny Woodhead. What It Means: Woodhead missed almost all of 2016 with a torn ACL, but the San Diego Union-Tribune reported in mid-January that his recovery was "six weeks ahead of schedule." Now 32 years old and coming off significant knee surgery, Woodhead should be cheap to retain. Melvin Gordon established himself as a capable every-down back in 2016, so Woodhead would likely return to a reduced role. Woodhead saw just 19 rushes and 8 targets before succumbing to the injury in 2016, but generated 0.18 Rushing Net...
