Robert Woods excited about adding Matthew Stafford, DeSean Jackson

After his trade to the Rams became official, quarterback Matthew Stafford had some nice things to say about wide receiver Robert Woods.

The admiration is mutual. Woods was a guest on PFT Live on Thursday and said he was both “shocked and excited” when he heard about the trade that brought Stafford to the Rams in exchange for Jared Goff and draft picks. The shock came from saying farewell to Goff while the excitement was due to “seeing what [Stafford’s] done in Detroit.”

Woods included “spreading the ball around” among those things he saw from the quarterback and another addition to the offense will figure into that as well. DeSean Jackson will join Woods and Cooper Kupp in the receiver group, and Woods is excited about what dimension he can bring to the offense.

“To bring him to our offense is super exciting, super dangerous for us,” Woods said. “Allows things to open up all around the field, underneath, down deep.”

Jackson didn’t stay healthy in Philadelphia last year and that will have to change in order for him to have a hand in what the Rams hope will be an improved passing offense in 2021.

  1. DeeShawn will be good for one game. Then he’ll develop some injury to compound his loss of two steps as a receiver. He’ll look great for one game and do what he does afterwards, disappear.

  2. STATford only does well in garbage minutes when the other team’s defense is in the prevent the win defense

  3. I wouldn’t get too gaga over Stafford. He had some very good receivers and a solid team around him for a good part of his career and couldn’t get the Lions to the playoffs. Its not all on him but he is used to losing, thats the problem going forward.
    He is adept at being behing in the 4th and trying to come back only becuase he could never get his team ahead in the other three quarters.
    Rams fans my be disappointed

    And what is that exactly?

    Excuse me? A solid team around him? Stafford led a one-dimensional offense. I don’t remember the Lions having a 1000 yard rusher the entire time he was there. It’s my understanding that they rarely had an RB get 100 yards in any of those games. Stafford wasn’t well protected and was also among the most sacked QBs in the league. In many of those years, the Lions defense was a joke.

    If Stafford had been playing for the Rams last season there’s a good chance we’d have won the SB. Goff didn’t show much self-confidence. Even the tv announcers were calling him out.

    Unfortunately, while I expect us to have a good defense this year we’ve lost too many pieces to be the NFL’s #1 defense again. But if we’d had Stafford last year with that defense, we would have won more games and cruised to a matchup against Brady in the NFC title game.
