The long-awaited contract extension for Rams wide receiver Robert Woods is done.

Woods and the Rams have agreed to a four-year contract extension with $32 million guaranteed and a maximum value of $68 million, according to multiple reports.

The 28-year-old Woods has been with the Rams since 2017, when he signed a four-year contract as a free agent from the Bills.

Last year Woods had a career-high 90 catches, and had 1,134 receiving yards.

The Rams also recently locked up wide receiver Cooper Kupp for the long term, and they hope the two of them are Jared Goff‘s top receivers for years to come.

  1. Woods is the most complete receiver in the league. Can’t wait to hear what the huge Ram fan Mike Florio has to say about this.

  2. Sometimes FA signings work out. Woods’ second contract with the Rams worth twice as much as his first one. Good route runner, good hands, good blocker and good teammate.

  3. It’s going to be an interesting off-season for the Rams. I checked and their top nine players under contract for next year are making over $137M. Supposedly the cap next year is going to be in the neighborhood of $175M. That means they are only going to have $38M left for the other 44 players. They can’t get rid of either Goff or Donald without taking huge cap hits ($50 for Goff, $60M for Donald).

    Just for fun, I checked Dallas. Their top seven players combine for $111M. That would leave $64M for the other 46 players. Keep in mind, that top seven does not include Dak. If they give him the $35M he wants that means they would be in even worse shape than the Rams since they’d have $29M left for the other 45 players.

    It’s going to be a very interesting off-season for both of those teams.

  4. JMO, but sites like Spotrac and OvertheCap are not the last word when it comes to a team’s cap flexibility.

  5. Yes, if you were to rate all of the NFL wide receivers on 1)Deep Threat 2) Route Running 3) Running (screens and such) 4) blocking and 5) character, can’t think of anyone that would grade better than Woods.

  6. Les Snead shows yet again he didn’t graduate college or take any economics/finance courses in college.

    Top heavy financial roster don’t win.

  7. I saw 4 years $32 and said “What a steal!”. Robert Woods is a good receiver, and I’d say it’s a slight overpay nothing crazy but… how are these Rams going pay the rest of the team? This ain’t the NBA, you need good Olinemen and role players.

    That’s the min value of the deal.

    He will likely be paid closer to 12 mil per with the performance incentives he hits, but he’s not some #1 wr. He is a #2 at best.

    As a Pats fan, I laughed at another Buffalo huge reach in the draft which is why he never earned an extension.

    Solid WR when healthy, but not worth the money he just got paid as he gets closer to 30.

    Woods was worth every penny the Rams paid him on his last contract. If Bill signed him instead of playing WR carousel with Amendola, Cooks, Gordon, Brown, Sanu, etc. the Pats would have had a few more draft picks to go along with an extremely solid WR to complement Edelman.

    How can they possibly afford to pay this guy this salary?

    I am starting to wonder if Goodell is making exceptions and helping Kroenke cheat the cap to help boost the Rams financial position in the LA market with the new stadium.

    He had to borrow money recently from owners and their GM acts like there is no cap. It’s incredibly suspicious as was their teambuild up through 2018 as well. They had a ton of expensive players like the Chiefs do now.

  12. All the people worried about how the Rams can pay their players are acting as if the money is coming from their pockets and taking food off their tables.

  13. Love to see organizations do right by their players. How he outperformed his contract and they extended him as soon as possible. You can say what you want about salary cap or this and that but marquee players are attracted to organizations who do good business. Salute to the Rams.

  14. $65-70 mil a year for 2 WRs and a QB. Wow. Who is going to block for them, run the ball, or play D other than Donald?
