In a move that is sure to make Jets fans howl, the Patriots signed wide receiver/running back Danny Woodhead on Saturday, as first reported by the Boston Herald.
A fan favorite in New York, Woodhead was cut this week to make room for wide receiver David Clowney. The move is the latest in a long line of Jets and Patriots players that have changed sides in recent years, often just before the two teams play each other.
Many will assume Woodhead is only being signed for his information, but he also fits the Patriots mold. They look for versatility above all else, especially at the end of their roster.
If the move tweaks their rivals a day before playing them, consider that a nice bonus.
