The Los Angeles Rams opted to trade veteran wide receiver Robert Woods to the Tennessee Titans in exchange for a late-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
The Los Angeles Rams have enjoyed the offseason thus far after winning Super Bowl 56. To start off the new league year, the Rams signed one of the top free agents in the league in former Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson. On Saturday, the team moved on from a veteran at the position.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Rams traded Robert Woods to the Tennessee Titans in exchange for a 2023 sixth-round draft pick.
Rams trade Robert Woods to Titans
Woods was made available by Los Angeles due to the team signing Robinson to a three-year, $45 million contract. The Titans were in need of a new wide receiver after the team cut Julio Jones following an injury-plagued 2021 campaign. Thus, a deal was made between both teams.
The Rams signed Woods in the 2017 league year, and has been a steady and consistent presence in Sean McVay’s offense over the years. But midway through the 2021 season, Woods suffered a torn ACL after nine games. From there, the offense was was centered around Cooper Kupp and late-season signing Odell Beckham Jr. The Rams won the Super Bowl while Woods was sidelined.
In his four years in Los Angeles, Woods caught 367-of-552 targets for 4,626 yards and 23 touchdowns through 68 games (67 starts).
As mentioned earlier, the team tried adding Jones in their offense this past season after trading a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 fourth-rounder to the Atlanta Falcons. Jones played in just 10 games, catching 31-of-48 passes for 434 yards and one touchdown.
Now, Tennessee acquires Woods, who slots in as the WR-2 on the team’s depth chart behind AJ Brown.
