Earlier today the Los Angeles Rams lost Kenny Britt via free agency to the Cleveland Browns. They have filled his void rather quickly by giving former Bills wide out Robert Woods a 5-year deal worth $39 million. This story comes our way per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Barring any snags, Robert Woods intends to sign a 5-year, $39 million deal, including $15 million guaranteed, with Rams, per sources.

Woods, 24, spent the first 4 years of his NFL career in Buffalo as a former 2nd round pick back in 2013 from USC. As the secondary receiver to Sammy Watkins, Woods reeled in 51 catches for 613 yards and 1 touchdown during the 2016 season.
The Rams have had a busy offseason signing left tackle Andrew Whitworth to a new deal as well. Woods will join a receiving core of Tavon Austin, Mike Thomas, and Pharoh Cooper. The real question is whether quarterback Jared Goff will take a step forward in 2017 instead of looking like a bust.
