The four-year deal for Woods is worth $65 million but can reach a maximum value of $68 million with incentives. Also, his new long-term extension includes $32 million in guarantees.
Since signing with the Rams in 2017, Woods has been a key contributor in Sean McVay’s offense. From his run-blocking to his contributions in the passing game, Woods has become one of the more underrated wide receivers in the NFL.
Before arriving in Los Angeles, Woods spent the first four years of his career with the Buffalo Bills. While with the Bills, Woods never recorded a season with 80-plus receptions or over 1,000 receiving yards.
However, the USC product has managed to tally those numbers in back-to-back seasons with the Rams in 2018 and 2019. To begin the 2020 season, Woods notched six receptions for 105 yards against the Dallas Cowboys. Given that, he is on track to produce his third consecutive 1,000-yard campaign.
Just a week ago, the Rams handed Kupp a three-year, $48 million extension. Kupp was originally playing in the final year of his rookie contract before he received a massive deal from Los Angeles. Besides Kupp and Woods, the Rams also shelled out a boatload of money to All-Pro Jalen Ramsey.
When Woods signed with the Rams in 2017, he signed a five-year deal worth $34 million. Fast forward to now and he’s garnering a significant, well-deserved raise to the tune of $68 million over four years, keeping him in Los Angeles through the 2025 season.
