Robert Woods, former USC star, reportedly lands multi-year deal with new NFL team
Robert Woods is reportedly on the move in the NFL.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Woods is signing a new contract with the Houston Texans via free agency. Despite a down season for the Tennessee Titans in 2022, Rapoport is reporting that Woods has landed a 2-year deal with $10 million fully guaranteed.
The deal is set at $15.25 million with a max value of $17 million for Woods.

Woods struggled during the 2022 season but led the Titans with 53 catches for 527 yards and added 2 touchdowns. Some of those struggles were more related to the Tennessee offense as a whole.
Woods’ best stretch as a pro came across 5 seasons with the Los Angeles Rams when he posted 4,626 yards and 23 touchdowns and won a Super Bowl ring with the organization.
Outlook for Woods
The deal is a good one for the Texans to build some depth in the wide receiver room with a veteran like Woods. With the organization rebuilding and holding the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft, nearly every analyst projects Houston to select a quarterback.
Adding Woods provides a bit of a security blanket for a young QB to help cut his teeth in the NFL.
