1. Robert Woods, WR
There was a time when Robert Woods was topping 1,000 yards per season. While with the Los Angeles Rams, he had 1,219 yards in 2018 and 1,134 in 2020. In all, he spent five seasons with Los Angeles and had 367 receptions for 4,626 yards and 23 touchdowns. He even won a Super Bowl with them in 2021.
Then, ahead of the 2022 season, the Rams decided to move on. Woods was traded to the Tennessee Titans for a mere sixth-round pick in 2023. While he did go on to lead the Titans in receiving, it was the worst year of his career as Woods had just 53 catches for 527 yards. He also had just two touchdowns.
There’s a case to be made that the drop-off wasn’t all on him, which is true. The Titans’ passing attack was simply abysmal, especially when Ryan Tannehill went down.
Having said that, Woods isn’t the type of wide receiver they need in Dallas. They have their No. 1 guy right now in CeeDee Lamb and believe Michael Gallup can turn back into the No. 2 guy they saw a few years ago. What they need, is someone who can stretch the field and back the safeties off.
Woods, who turns 31 next month, can be a solid addition for someone but he’s not the right fit in Dallas. Luckily, Woods inked a two-year deal with the Texans after this writing was submitted, so the Cowboys won’t even get the chance to sign him.
Thank you, Houston.
