The Los Angeles Rams deserve plenty of credit for going out of their way to reward Robert Woods thanks to his impact from the previous two seasons.
If the previous two seasons are any indication of what to expect, the Los Angeles Rams should see another big year from Robert Woods in 2019 to help the offense continue to be one of the best in the league.
Back in 2017, the Rams signed Woods in free agency with the intention of providing a much-needed boost in the passing game since wide receiver was one of the weakest positions for Los Angeles, as their offense was a complete joke.
While the Rams certainly felt confident in Woods’ ability, it’s safe to say the impact made by the wideout over the last two years was far from expected by most football fans, mainly because he didn’t really stand out as much as a member of the Buffalo Bills.
After putting together his best season in 2018 that resulted in career highs of 86 catches for 1,219 yards with six touchdowns, one can only imagine what Woods will do for an encore this upcoming season.
In fact, if the Rams are lucky, Woods will be even more motivated to continue playing at a high level since the team was kind enough to re-work his contract in order to make a little extra money over the next two seasons.
This may not seem like the biggest deal of the world money wise, but also keep in mind the Rams didn’t have to do anything at all, and could have just let Woods continue to play into the third season of his five-year deal.
Looking back when comparing the production to the money Woods is making, there’s no question that Los Angeles is getting a huge steal with their beloved wideout.
At this rate, chances are Woods will be in line for another big payday down the road since there’s no telling where this Rams’ offense would be without him heading into 2019, but for now, it’s good to see him earn a small raise since he clearly deserves it.
And if Woods does end up putting together another monster season for the Rams in 2019, it will make this deal seem even more worthy for both parties.
