After seeing his level of impact from the previous two weeks, nobody is questioning the decision by the Los Angeles Rams to bring Robert Woods on board in free agency anymore.

Once the 2016 season officially came to an end, the Los Angeles Rams made it a top priority to do whatever it takes to improve the receiving corps to help bring the best out of Jared Goff after seeing all of the struggles he experienced in seven starts as a rookie. As soon as free agency got underway, the Rams wasted no time in signing former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Woods, and even though there were some questions surrounding the decision at the time, nobody seems to object to the decision by the organization anymore.

One week after making two trips into the end zone against the New York Giants, Woods had a career day in Week 10 against the Houston Texans after catch two more touchdown passes while finishing with eight catches for 171 yards. Even if most of those numbers came on a 94-yard touchdown catch from Goff in the third quarter, these last two games are the perfect example why as to why Los Angeles was thrilled to land him in free agency, despite some negative feedback from some when the move first happened.

Many were surprised to see like the Rams reward Woods with a five-year deal worth up to $39 million in the offseason when looking at some of the other receivers available in free agency, especially when taking into consideration he only caught 12 touchdown passes in four seasons with the Bills. But with Woods buying into one Sean McVay was selling on offense along with the chemistry he’s developed with Goff on offense, everything seems to be falling into place for both parties.

Plus, with Woods spending his college career at USC, it’s safe to say the wideout has been enjoying the benefits of playing in California again. Give Los Angeles credit for believing in bringing Woods on board, because if the wideout continues to play at this high level, it’s only going to make the offense even more dangerous than it already is.
