What a cute little article. I'm sure Alex "cuckold" Putterman whipped this one up after attending a black lives matter rally. Professional sports career or not, Tebow craps all over his critics in every facet of life.

The Chargers signed Woodhead away from the Patriots for a relatively small salary. The Patriots could have easily kept him.

The Patriots lost a close game to the eventual Super Bowl winning Broncos in the playoffs. I wonder if they had kept Woodhead would it have been enough to tip the balance in the Patriots's favor in that game? If they had beaten the Broncos they probably would have beaten the Panthers.

Maybe not re-signing Woodhead cost the Patriots another Super Bowl.

Good points, it is fun to speculate! I'm very interested to see if Danny outperforms Gordon last year's 1st rd pick again. Philip Rivers has gotta love having Danny as a safety net on check downs he has the ability to turn short passes into big gains!

Danny's 16 rushing attempts yesterday, for an impressive 89 yards, may have been a career high as the most rushes he's had in a season in the NFL is only 106. Melvin Gordon scored twice but the team turned to Woodhead in the second half after WR Keenan Allen was injured. With Allen likely out for the season the Chargers will really be struggling in the passing game as he was easily their best receiver. Philip Rivers is simply outstanding and seemingly has had to make do with injuries to multiple receivers most seasons, but Allen being out should make Danny that much more valuable in 2016 as a running and receiving asset.

With Allen out maybe San Diego will sign Hartline. No wait, that would make too much sense.

Woodhead to the Broncos?

Despite missing all but two games in 2016, free-agent running back Danny Woodhead will likely have a few options as he mulls over the next move in hisNFLcareer. Sporting News' Alex Marvez reported Tuesday the Denver Broncos are among those keeping tabs on the 32-year-old.

It will be important Woodhead has early success because once Dixon's suspension is over it will be hard for him to steal snaps from him. It's looking like Woodhead's only competition early will be West, which underwhelmed last season.

As long as Danny stays healthy he's going to be an integral part of Baltimore's offense. Flacco has got to be pumped to have a proven catch passer at RB by his side!

Joe Flacco will target Danny early and often this year. The loss of Dennis Pitta makes his role even more important.

Ravens' Danny Woodhead: Pass-catching magnet with Ravens


Woodhead marveled with the amount of passes he caught during minicamp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Woodhead, who has caught at least 75 passes in his last two healthy seasons, is well known as a receiving threat, but coming off last year's Week 2 torn ACL and a subsequent change in teams, it's impressive that he's already consistently involved in Baltimore. With Kenneth Dixon (suspension) to miss the first four games and Terrence West boasting 49 career receptions, Woodhead could be an immediate contributor with the Ravens, which would benefit PPR owners to boot.

I'd love to see Danny get at least 500 yds rushing and 500 receiving this year. He has been one of the biggest caste busters of the past 10 years and has outlasted Brian Leonard and Peyton Hillis in the NFL. As long as he remains healthy he should by pass 5k total yards this season. Really remarkable for a white running back in this day and age.

Woodhead's primary competition as the pass-catching back will be Buck Allen, an undersized RB who was a 4th round pick 2 years ago.

Exciting times for our cause. Woodhead, McCaffrey, and Burkhead should be starters or 3rd down backs at least. A handful of other white RBs and FBs could get some carries.

Woodhead has a few more years left in him and has the drive to keep it up. Rex I'm hoping is the starter. Christian should be the starter, 8th pick in the 1st round, he better start he would be the only rb ever selected that high who didn't.

A few new pics of Danny practicing without restrictions in Baltimore. One of the original "caste busters" of the past decade looks to be in shape and almost fully recovered from last season's ACL tear. Numerous fantasy football articles I've read are predicting his "big role" in the passing game...

Five years ago, it would be hard to imagine a white athlete being complimented like this anywhere other than CF. In 2017, even far-left, Caste-flavored sites like Yahoo are doling out the praise. In this article, the writer believes that Woodhead will be a top PPR fantasy back with Baltimore this season and boasts about his speed and agility...

"Zooming out to review Woodhead’s advanced stats and metrics, reveals one of the NFL’s most athletic all-around running backs."

The praise and adulation for McCaffrey from the Caste Media has been unbelievable, too. I guess all those white Patriots skill players dominating black defenses so thoroughly over the past few years has emotionally-scarred the average cuck sportswriter to such an extent that they're now afraid to doubt white WR's/RB's.

Woodhead, who has sat out for the past 2 weeks with a hamstring pull, returned to practice today and is poised for a great season.

If Woodhead shines, along with Flacco for the Ravens this year and the Pats and them meet deep in the playoffs such as the AFC championship, with hopefully the Pats pulling it out, it's a win-win against the caste system. I know that scenario is a lot of "ifs" but nowadays all I want to see other than the Pats winning it all again is to witness caste system whores getting their panties in wads and having menstrual cramps over guys like Woodhead, Christian, Burkhead and other lesser known White stars taking the spotlight and essentially killing the naysayers every week. We know perinnial all stars like Jordy, Gronk and Witten will shine at the receiving position but the White RB must not only be great, but shove it down the throats (visually) of the dwf so they can stop being puppets and parrots.

A couple things working in Woodhead's favor this season:

The Ravens threw 672 passes last year, which was the most in the NFL by a significant margin. With Dennis Pitta, Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken, and Juszczyk gone, Woodhead will absorb many of their targets.

The average length of Flacco's passes was 6.42 yards. Woodhead should shred defenses in the short passing game.

Joe Flacco returned to practice a few days ago after a long back injury. He hadn't practiced since June 15th. Flacco will be hesitant to throw longer passes and should look for Woodhead early and often as a check-down.

Last year, Terrance West averaged about 14 touches per game. He has a completely different build than Woodhead and is more of a straight-line, between-the-tackles RB and not a receiver...yet even he had 34 catches. Woodhead should have 70-80.

It seems like Danny is feeling great and has no practice restrictions from his hamstring injury.

Woodhead (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports. Woodhead has been held out of practice since the second week of the preseason, seemingly as a precaution more than anything else. The Ravens haven't expressed any concern about his availability for Week 1 in Cincinnati, where he'll split snaps with Terrance West and should quickly emerge as one of Joe Flacco's preferred targets. Flacco (back) and wideout Breshad Perriman (hamstring) also returned to practice Saturday, giving Baltimore its full complement of offensive weapons for the first time since June minicamp. Woodhead may not even be listed on the injury reports leading up to the opener.

Looking forward to the Ravens this year - hopefully Williams and Campanaro stay healthy and contribute along with Woodhead on offense.

Yeah, Williams could be a real under the radar emerging tight end if he can stay healthy. Campanaro was set to be used heavily until the Ravens traded for Jeremy Maclin, so it's unclear what his role will be. With 2015 first rounder Breshad Perriman constantly injured and not looking very good when he does play, Maclin might be used more outside and allow Campanaro to play inside.

Thrashen is right that Danny is primed for a huge year if his health holds up.
