The Robert Woods’ deal is done.

The Rams’ extension with the receiver has been close for a day and the Rams closed the deal Friday afternoon. Woods got a heck of a deal and it is similar to the contract fellow Rams’ receiver Cooper Kupp received last Saturday,

Friday. ESPN reported some details of Kupp’s new deal.[

Woods’ deal will probably give the Rams some cap relief as well for this year.

Woods, an L.A. native who went to USC, signed a five-year. $34 million deal with the Rams as a free agent from Buffalo in 2017. He received $15 million in guaranteed money. The contract runs through the 2021 season.

Woods, 28, far outperformed his contract and the Rams have recognized it. He has had 176 catches for 2,353 yards in the past two season combined. Woods started 2020 off with a bang as he had six catches for 105 yards in the Rams’ win over the Cowboys on Sunday night.

He is the third key Rams’ player to extend his contract this month, joining Kupp and star cornerback Jalen Ramsey. In the last two years, they extended defensive tackle Aaron Donald and quarterback Jared Goff to huge deals. Where is all the cap room coming from? Don’t ask the Rams’ Twitter account.
