The Los Angeles Rams moved on from Robert Woods and they did not get back very much in order to do so. The Rams traded their longtime star receiver to the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
In exchange, the Rams will get a 2023 sixth-round draft pick from the Titans.
Monday Morning Quarterback’s Albert Breer broke down why exactly Woods went for such a bargain price.
“It’s a 2023 sixth-rounder going to the Rams for WR Robert Woods,” Breer reported. “Woods is a really good player but is coming back from a torn ACL, is expensive ($13.5 million in 2022), and turns 30 next month.”
