Danny Woodhead, Chargers agree on extension

Danny Woodhead and the San Diego Chargers are staying in business together.

The Chargersannounced Tuesday that the versatile running back has agreed on a two-year contract extension with the team. Financial terms haven't been disclosed. Woodhead had one year remaining on his previous contract and is now under team control through the 2016 season.

"Danny is an integral part of our offense," said general manager Tom Telesco. "His work ethic and on-field production were key elements last year. We look forward to having him be a part of the Chargers organization into the future."

Woodhead was a vital cog in San Diego's offense last season, establishing career highs with 76 catches, 605 yards, six receiving touchdowns and 1,296 all-purpose yards. He ranked second among all NFL running backs in receptions and receiving yards. Woodhead, 29, came to the Chargers in 2013 after spending three seasons with the New England Patriots.

Woodhead is part of a promising backfield committee that also includes Ryan Mathews and Donald Brown. It's possible Woodhead finishes with more catches than carries in 2014.
