Woodhead picked up by Patriots
By Rich Cimini
Fan favorite Danny Woodhead, once the New York Jets' version of "Rudy," is now on the other side of the Border War.
Woodhead, cut Tuesday when the Jets re-signed WR David Clowney, signed Saturday with the New England Patriots.
The Foxborough Shuttle lives. The two rivals, of course, meet Sunday at the New Meadowlands Stadium.
A year ago, the Jets traded for ex-Pats QB Kevin O'Connell at the end of the preseason, with Rex Ryan admitting they were motivated, in part, by O'Connell's familiarity with the Pats. The Jets faced the Pats in Week 2 and beat them. Sticking it to the Pats, Ryan made O'Connell one of the game captains.
Will Bill Belichick make Woodhead a captain Sunday afternoon? Will Belichick put Woodhead under a bright lamp, pumping him for the 411 on the Jets?
Jets-Patriots. Gotta love it.
