Robert Woods

Veteran receiver Robert Woods is headed for his third team in as many seasons.

After playing the 2022 season with the Tennessee Titans, Woods is staying in the AFC South. On Friday, it was reported that he signed with the Houston Texans.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported the news, adding that it’s a two-year, $15.25 million contract, “with $10M fully guarantee[d] and a max value of $17M.”

The NFL world seemed to like the move for both Woods and the team.


Woods has a Super Bowl ring as a member of the Los Angeles Rams in 2021. But due to a torn ACL in November, he missed the final weeks of the regular season, as well as Los Angeles’ entire playoff run.

The one season in Tennessee didn’t go particularly well for Woods statisitically. He caught 53 passes for a career low 527 yards with a pair of touchdowns. He did help his cause in a big way, though, playing in all 17 games (starting 15). Woods will be 31 in April. So, showing teams that he can play a full season after a bad injury bolstered his worth.

Houston is slated to pick second in the upcoming NFL Draft and logic says that they’ll be drafting a quarterback. As a veteran receiver, Woods will have a lot to do with the development of that quarterback.
