Former elite USC Wide Receiver Robert Woods was traded from the Los Angeles Rams to the Tennessee Titans for a 2023 sixth-round pick. I have no idea how that's all the Rams got for Bobby Trees, but it is. Woods is one of the better NFL wide receivers in all of football, averaging 68 yards per game over these last five seasons.

He has also shown ability to be very efficient in the running game, rushing 68 times for 473 rushing yards (seven yards per attempt) with five rushing touchdowns since 2018. It is perplexing as to why the Rams were interested in moving off from him. He is coming off of an injury that he suffered this past season, but so is another great Rams receiver in Odell Beckham Jr., who is a free agent anyway.

One would think they would bring OBJ back before dealing Woods. The Rams must be extremely confident in newly signed standout wideout Allen Robinson. Perhaps that acquisition teased a move to unload Bobby Trees from the team.

Former dominant USC WR Robert Woods would have a great year regardless of what team he would be on in 2022.

Robert Woods hasn't lost a step since he feasted with USC football. He already has proven to be a tremendous fit with Los Angeles, but he will also be fantastic in this new outstanding duo he will complete with AJ Brown. He is a GREAT replacement for Julio Jones, who Tennessee released.

They clearly liked what they knew they could get in Woods. Everyone would, and to make it even better, all they had to trade was a sixth round pick in next year's draft. This is truly nothing short of a steal.

Woods has been sensational since back in his SC days, where he played three years and racked up 252 catches. Recording 2,930 yards, Woods also grabbed 32 touchdowns and ran for 142 yards on 14 carries in his collegiate career.
