Patriots-Jets Rivalry

Danny Woodhead

Danny Woodhead

September 2010

One of the most interesting plot lines of Hard Knocks was Danny Woodhead's quest to make the roster. The 5-foot-7 running back was a favorite of coach Rex Ryan, but there were lingering doubts about whether  he could be an effective player at his height. Though he made the roster out of training camp, he was waived by the team after Week 1. He was signed by the Patriots four days later before their game against the Jets. In nine games, he has accumulated over 550 yards of total offense and four touchdowns.
