Woods feels a piece is missing in the Titans’ Super Bowl | Titans
Shortly after the Los Angeles Rams signed prized free agent wide receiver Allen Robinson to a three-year, $46.5 million deal, Robert Woods got a call from head coach Sean McVay.
Le Broad was told the Rams would trade him, but he had the courtesy to choose his next employer.
Already familiar with Titans receivers coach Rob Moore and offensive coordinator Todd Downing from his time in Buffalo, Woods consulted close friends and former Titans players Josh Reynolds and Rodger Saffold before deciding the best fit was in Tennessee.
“I think this organization, this team that can feed off the ground game, have a quarterback to deliver the ball, has another threat on the opposite side. [of A.J. Brown] and obviously being able to bring our game and our complements to this team, I think that was what suited me the best,” Woods said.
“I feel like this team has everything, and I feel like I can be that addition that can help get them through. They made the playoffs and now we have to finish it and win. a Super Bowl here.”
Before tearing his ACL in Week 10 last season, Woods had three straight seasons with 85 or more receptions and back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2018 and 2019 with the Rams. The Bills’ second-round pick in 2013, the addition of Woods gives the Titans the No. 2 bona fide receiver against AJ Brown that they thought they would get last season in Julio Jones.
Limited to just 13 games in 2021, Brown himself just missed his third straight 1,000-yard season. The 24-year-old has never played with another NFL WR with more than 65 receptions or 984 yards in a single season.
“[Brown] finishes in the end zone, strong runner, attacks the ball, aggressive hands,” Woods added. “So I think my game with [Brown’s], being able to hit from both sides, I think it will be really dynamic. His game complements mine. Once we have the ball in our hands, I think we’ll be really dangerous, just because the way we run and attack defenders eats away at the ground. I think we’re going to be really, really good together.
Added Woods and tight end Austin Hooper working with Brown, in addition to Derrick Henry, Ryan Tannehill might have the best supporting cast he’s had in four seasons with the Titans.
