Ladarius Green: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

When asked Saturday if he was dealing with headaches as has been speculated, Green reiterated that the reason for his continued presence on the Steelers' PUP list is his ankle issue, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "I don't know what reports those are," Green, noted on the matter of his health. "I am still on PUP because of my ankle. I have still be rehabbing on my ankle, so I haven't been dealing with anything else but that."

Green (ankle) has increased his activity in the past week, including running routes and catching passes, the Observer-Reporter reports. "I've been doing a lot more," he said Saturday. "I've been on the field every day trying to run, building myself up. ... The ankle's still not 100 percent yet. I'm pushing for it. It's getting better."

2016

2015

A popular breakout candidate last season, Green was less productive than the year before, losing 150 yards and failing to find the end zone after scoring three times in 2013. The problem, of course, is the ageless Antonio Gates, whose 12 touchdowns last year tied for most among tight ends. Coach Mike McCoy said the team wants to get Green more involved this year, though, of course, he said the same thing last year. But that desire might actually come to fruition this season. Gates said in the offseason he wants to play fewer snaps in 2015, limiting his work to third downs and the red zone. He is also in the last year of his contract, which could motivate the Chargers to finally prepare for a post-Gates offense, just in case. If Green ever does get a bigger role, he seemingly has the physical attributes and skills to dominate. With 4.53 speed, Green is one of the league's fastest tight ends, all the more impressive considering he is 6-6, 240. He has excellent leaping ability (34.5-inch vertical) and big hands (10 1/8 inches) and figures to have upside both as a weapon out of the slot and an uncoverable red-zone target.

2014

The understudy the last two years to Antonio Gates, Green looks ready to play a main part in the Chargers offense this season. Coach Mike McCoy said in March that he regretted not using Green more last year. It's easy to see why, as Green averaged 22.1 yards per catch last season and 12.5 yards per target, both tops among tight ends. Eight of his 17 receptions went for 25-plus yards. And even though he was the backup, he still scored just one fewer touchdown than Gates. Green and Gates likely will be used often in two-TE sets this season. Green can split wide, as well, or play in the slot. At 6-6, 240, with 4.53 speed, he creates mismatches wherever he lines up -- too big for defensive backs, too quick for linebackers. With his height and leaping ability (34.4-inch vertical), jump balls from Philip Rivers in the end zone should be routine. Entering his 12th NFL season, Gates, 34, has clearly lost a step, and Green figures to be a significant part of the offense this season.

2013

Green only caught four passes as a rookie, but he will remain in the mix as a backup tight end in 2013 and could see increased action if the veteran Antonio Gates gets banged up.

2012

The Chargers are extremely high on their athletic new new tight end and see him as a potential long-term heir apparent to Antonio Gates. However, in the short term, the tight end position is extremely crowded with Randy McMichael, Dante Rosario and Kory Sperry all bringing tons of experience to the position in training camp.
