The sting of the Super Bowl loss is still there for Patriots running back Danny Woodhead, but with organized team activities beginning this week, he welcomes the opportunity to get started on a new season.
“It’s going to be fun getting back working out with the guys and pushing each other to the limit,” said Woodhead, who appeared Sunday at the Boston Marathon Sports and Fitness Expo at the Seaport World Trade Center to endorse Skechers sneakers.
“It’s tough, you make it to the last game and you want to win, that’s what you work so hard for,” Woodhead said. “It didn’t happen, but you’ve got to wake up the next morning and get ready and work back to where you were, get back in shape, try to be better every single day going forward.”
He spoke about the team’s loss of fellow running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who signed a free agent deal with the Cincinnati Bengals.
“That’s part of the NFL. Great friend, he was always a great teammate,” Woodhead said.
However, Woodhead couldn’t speculate as to how losing Green-Ellis would affect the team.
“I’m not for sure, that’s probably something you’d have to ask the coaches. I’m going to go out there are try and work my hardest every day, just like, I think, everyone else on the team. I think we’ve got to try to get better.”
