Robert Thomas Woods is a name to reckon with in the world of the NFL. The talented wide receiver played college football at USC where he impressed one and all by his performances. As a result, he was recognized as a consensus All-American. Robert was eventually drafted by the Bills in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
The 6 feet tall WR, after spending a few years with the Bills went to the Los Angeles Rams back in 2017 where he established himself in quick time. However, in 2021, Robert’s season was cut short after he tore his ACL during practice.
“We thought Robert Woods was irreplaceable”: ESPN’s Louis Riddick
Before getting injured, Woods had 45 catches and 556 yards with 5 touchdowns in 9 games he featured in during the previous season. He was replaced in the team by Odell Beckham Jr and the rest as they say is history. Odell was going nowhere when he was with the Browns but the moment he started featuring for the Rams after the transfer, things changed dramatically.
OBJ played a crucial role in guiding the Rams to several important wins and eventually ended up winning the Super Bowl. Post that, there were speculations about what lies ahead for Robert and now, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, the Tennessee Titans are all set to acquire him from the Rams.
In return, the Rams will get a 2023 sixth-rounder from the Titans. After releasing Julio Jones, the Titans were looking for a reliable WR and it would be fair to say that they have done a good job. ESPN’s Louis Riddick also took to Twitter to shower praise on Robert.
“Robert Woods had missed 1 game/1 start in the 3 seasons prior to being injured in November ‘21. Was considered to be a guy that was irreplaceable because of how important he was to the Rams on the field and in the locker room. Rehab on track. Trade is a good one for Tennessee,” he wrote.
It’ll be interesting to see how Robert performs for his new franchise in the coming season.
