Woodhead spent the last three seasons in New England after being released by the Jets during the 2010 season. The 5-8 back rushed for 10 touchdowns and caught four more while with the Patriots, and instantly became a fan favorite after running for a 22-yard touchdown in his first game with New England — a 38-30 win over the Bills in Buffalo.

Woodhead would score five of his rushing touchdowns that first season with the Patriots. He served a much bigger role as New England’s third down back in 2012, and ended the season with a career-high 40 receptions for 446 yards and three receiving touchdowns.
