Danny Woodhead will not be relocating with the Chargers from San Diego to Los Angeles.

Instead, the free agent running back is expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens according to a report from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Woodhead appeared in just two games for the Chargers last season before suffering a torn ACL that brought an abrupt end to his season. In 16 games in 2015, Woodhead caught 80 passes for 755 yards and six touchdowns out of the backfield and added 336 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.

Woodhead brings experience to a running back group that is still decisively young for the Ravens. He quickly pencils in as a third down back behind Buck Allen, Kenneth Dixon and Lorenzo Taliaferro.

  1. As a Bengals fan I hate to admit it…but that’s a good signing for them. They’ve missed having a great receiving back since Ray Rice left. Easy completions for unibrow.

  2. There is nothing unlikable about this fellow . Hard running , nimble & quick , smaht , great hands , a disappointment to his diminutive if devoted fan cabal when he left the best coast for the west one .

  3. Apparently they want him to replace the pass catching fullback who is expected to sign a contract with the 49ers. Bill Walsh was the innovator who threw the ball often to the fullback. Teams are apparently re-discovering this tactic.

  4. eh. hate to see him leave, but reality is we can replace his role via the draft.
    that and he has not been healthy the majority of the past 3 seasons.
    sure was fun to watch when he was healthy though!

  5. Popular player and outlet for Rivers. Letting him go creates another “downer” for Rivers and Carson city Chargers morale. They won’t be “up” having no home games in Carson City. Spanos couldn’t care less as he’s selling the team.
