This one flew under the radar: the San Diego Chargers have announced they've signed Danny Woodhead to a two-year contract.

Last year Woodhead filled the third-down running back role that Kevin Faulk had previously occupied for the Patriots, with 76 carries for 301 yards and four touchdowns plus 40 receptions for 446 yards and three touchdowns.

But as the season went on and Shane Vereen started getting more touches, it was easy to wonder if Woodhead would be back with New England when he hit free agency.

The signing of kick returner Leon Washington earlier this week also seemed to portend the end of Woodhead's time with the Patriots.

The 28-year old heads out west after two-plus seasons with the Patriots.
