REPORT: Buffalo Bills Reach Rookie Deal With Robert Woods


The Buffalo Bills have reached a rookie deal with former Trojan wide receiver Robert Woods on Monday morning, according to the Associated Press.

Drafted in the second round and 41st overall in April’s NFL Draft, the Southern California star was regarded as one of the most well-groomed wide receivers out of college, and this fall he will compete to start opposite Stevie Johnson.

Woods set a number of records at USC, en route to finishing his three-year career there with
2,930 receiving yards and 32 touchdowns.

Over the weekend Woods participated in the NFL Player’s Association’s “Rookie Premiere” event in Los Angeles, and today, he returned to Buffalo to begin Buffalo’s three-day minicamp.

Aside from Woods, the Bills drafted Marquise Goodwin from Texas in the third round and signed Da’Rick Rogers as an undrafted free agent later as apart of an effort to rebuild the wide receiver corps under new coach Doug Marrone.

So far, Buffalo has reached a deal with seven of eight rookies that it drafted this year. Only quarterback EJ Manuel out of Florida State remains unsigned.
