New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady still wonders why the New York Jets released running back Danny Woodhead.  Brady took a small jab at the Jets during his weekly radio show with WEEI in Boston. “I remember his first game,” Brady said via the New York Post. “We kind of joked on the sideline, [former Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien] and I, we kind of said, ‘The legend is born.’ We saw him that week in practice, what he was capable of doing, and said, ‘Why did the Jets release that guy?’ They had him playing receiver and he was a running back in college.” The Jets released Woodhead two years ago.  He scored twice in the Patriots' 37-31 victory over the Buffalo Bills, catching one touchdown pass and running for another.  Woodhead's role on the team has grown this season as he is second on the Patriots with 49 carries and fourth on the team with 23 catches. Brady is thankful to have him.   “He’s just come in and done such a great job,” Brady said. “He’s the ultimate team player and teammate — dependable, consistent, you always know the level of play you’re getting from Danny. He had a huge game [Sunday] for us. We really needed it, because as an offense, I’d say everyone really didn’t have their best day but Danny. He really saved the day for us.” The Patriots play the Jets Thanksgiving night at MetLife Stadium. Photo: WEEI 93.7
