Rams Trading Robert Woods To Titans
The Rams are trading Robert Woods to the Titans. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Titans are sending a 2023 sixth-round pick in return for the wideout.

As's Michael David Smith reminded readers, Woods was having a good season in 2021 before he tore his ACL, and he was expected to recover and stay with the Rams in 2022. But after the Rams signed receiver Allen Robinson in free agency, Woods became expendable.

The Titans apparently believe that Woods will heal up and be ready to go this season. Woods is due a $10 million base salary this season; there’s no immediate word on whether he has agreed to a new contract with the Titans.

Tennessee is reportedly sending a 2023 sixth-round pick to the Rams to acquire Woods.

Woods had spent the last five years with the Rams after playing four years before that for the Bills. Titans offensive coordinator Todd Downing was on the Bills’ staff in 2014 when Woods was in Buffalo, so there’s some familiarity there.

The Titans were in the market for a wide receiver after cutting Julio Jones, and Woods is their man.

Having an effective threat to work opposite A.J. Brown is clearly a positive for Brown and Ryan Tannehill.

And Woods isn't without upside.

In fact, Woods, who is expected to return from his "clean" ACL tear in time for the start of the season, has been one of the most productive receivers in the NFL. He topped 1,000 yards from scrimmage each season between 2018 and 2020. The Titans will make out here if Woods returns to form.
