The next player is a former teammate of Taylor Lewan as well as a former Buffalo Bills wide receiver in Robert Woods. He was reportedly released at the same time as Lewan and a return to the team who drafted him could be a great fit.

Woods was a second round pick by the Buffalo Bills in the 2013 NFL Draft but it wasn’t until he left Buffalo to sign with the Los Angeles Rams as a free agent in 2017 that he really found success with three straight seasons with over 85 receptions and 900 receiving yards from 2018 to 2020.

He would suffer a torn ACL during the 2021 season and would be traded to the Titans last offseason. While he didn’t look fully recovered this past season, he still led the Titans in receptions and receiving yards.

Now being a year fully removed from the injury, he certainly could bounce back this upcoming season. If the Buffalo Bills were to sign him, he could step in as the team’s starting slot receiver and give Josh Allen a reliable pass catcher in those short and medium range routes.
