Wide receiver Robert Woods has confirmed the Los Angeles Rams allowed him to choose his next team and that it didn't take much research for him to decide on the Tennessee Titans.
Woods is swapping the Super Bowl champions for a Titans team, currently 25/1 to take Lombardi Trophy next February, that finished as the number one seeds in the AFC last season, but failed to make it past the Divisional Round of the play-offs.
Once the Rams agreed to sign free agent wide receiver Allen Robinson, Woods became somewhat surplus to requirements at SoFi Stadium.
But there were no shortage of takers for the 29-year-old, who tore his ACL during practice in November, prematurely ending his 2021 season after just nine games.
"They told me I'd have a say in where I'd be traded," Woods told reporters on Wednesday, via ESPN.
"I did my research and spoke with past players that were here. And just having a relationship with (offensive coordinator) Todd Downing and (receivers coach) Rob Moore already from being in Buffalo.
"Then Derrick Henry, Ryan Tannehill, A.J. Brown, they're a top-performing team and the Coach of the Year (Mike Vrabel), so joining this team is beneficial for my career."
Woods is excited about what he can achieve with the Titans, who are yet to win the Super Bowl since the franchise moved to Nashville, or in their previous guise as the Houston Oilers.
"I am joining a great offense, a great team," Woods added.
"I am really excited to get to work with Ryan Tannehill and A.J. Brown and everyone to get this thing rolling.
"We have a great back on the backfield, and you have to have a good running back to get the passing game going and I think Derrick Henry will complement what I do and what we'll do in the passing game."
