Teams are beginning to sign their top draft picks and the Buffalo Bills are joining that party. According to James Walker of ESPN, the Bills have agreed to a four year contract with second-round draft pick Robert Woods.
Per Walker and his AFC East blog on ESPN:
Buffalo reached a four-year agreement with second-round pick and rookie receiver Robert Woods, a source tells ESPN.com’s AFC East blog. Woods was in Los Angeles for the NFLPA’s Rookie Premiere this weekend, and is expected to sign the contract with Buffalo in the next few days.
Woods was the Bills second round pick out of USC and is poised to be the No. 2 receiver alongside Stevie Johnson. Woods struggled a bit to stay relevant in his final year with the Trojans as Marqise Lee surpassed him in popularity on the team and with their fans. But despite this, Woods’ talent is undeniable and the Bills recognized that when they picked him.
Buffalo is entering a new era for their team and the offense has a brand new look starting with rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel. But Woods is looking to be a big part of the change and the success Buffalo hopes to have, and he’ll have at least four years to make his mark and earn his keep with the Bills.
