The Houston Texans started their free agent dealings even before the free agency officially opens on Monday. According to multiple reports, the Texans have signed veteran wide receiver Robert Woods on a two-year deal.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Woods’ deal is worth $15.25 million and comes with $10 million in guaranteed money. The 30-year-old player could also get an additional $1.75 million based on incentives.
Woods is coming off a disappointing season in which he had 53 catches for a career-worst 527 receiving yards with the Tennessee Titans. He also added only two touchdowns, his lowest since 2019. He ended up being cut by the Titans despite having a contract that ran through the 2025 season.
Still, the Texans obviously believe that Woods has something left in the tank and that they can get some production out of him. Considering that the franchise is most likely to field a rookie quarterback in 2023, it makes sense to have a veteran who had previous success in the league.
Woods also played with the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Rams since entering the league in 2013 as a second-round selection. The USC product has 623 career catches for 7,604 yards and 37 TDs while winning a Super Bowl ring with the Rams in 2021.
