Chargers TE Ladarius Green, breakout candidate?

Chargers beat reporter Michael Gehlken thinks so. He was asked during a chat earlier this week who are his breakout players for 2014.
"Ladarius Green @kingGREEN_89 the first name on offense who comes to mind," Gehlken wrote.
Green is a 24-year-old athletic tight end in a huge frame -- 6-foot-6, 240 pounds. He caught 17 passes for 376 yards and three touchdowns last year.

Fantasy Analysis:

Green is gaining his share of buzz this offseason. It's easy to become giddy when thinking about what he can do if given a full-time role. But I can't predict that will come this season for Green. Antonio Gates @AntonioGates85 is wearing down, but he is still around, and I assume he will still see the majority of targets among Chargers tight ends. Keenan Allen is the undisputed No. 1 receiver here. And Gehlken also wrote in the chat that he sees this Chargers team as built to run the football. "No reason for this to be a pass-heavy system, throwing the ball 60-plus percent of the time," he wrote.
First-year offensive coordinator Frank Reich will have the ultimate say on that issue. I'm not betting right now on Reich giving Green a substantially larger role in 2014.
