The San Diego Chargers reached a two-year extension with running back Danny Woodhead, the team announced Tuesday. Woodhead signed a two-year deal with the Chargers last offseason as a free agent, so the extension will run through 2016.
In his first year in San Diego, Woodhead had a breakout season. He amassed career highs in nearly every offensive category, including yards from scrimmage (1,034), touchdowns (eight), receptions (76) and receiving yards (605). Woodhead's receiving numbers were some of the best for any running back; he was second among backs in receptions and receiving yards.
Woodhead also notched a career high in rushing attempts with 105. He shared the backfield with Ryan Mathews, who rushed for 1,255 yards and six touchdowns.
