Robert Woods headed to Texas.

Houston inked a two-year, $15.25 million deal to bring the veteran wide receiver on Friday afternoon, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Woods was released earlier this year by the Tennessee Titans along with veterans Taylor Levan, Zack Cunningham and Randy Bullock, clearing about $40 million cap space. He had a career-low 527 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 53 catches at Tennessee.

Woods was traded by the Rams to the Titans for a draft pick last May, ending a five-year run Los Angeles. However, he tore his ACL during practice in the middle of the 2021 season, and missed the team’s postseason run and Super Bowl LVI victory. That injury came after three straight seasons in which he passed for over 900 yards.

Although the 30-year-old struggled last year, he should be a key target for a Texans team need of a new quarterback. Houston went just 3-13-1 last season under Davis Mills, and it fired coach Lovie Smith and replaced him with San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Demeko Ryan.

The Texans have the No. 2 overall selection next month’s draft, and Yahoo Sports’ Charles McDonald told them to select Florida’s Anthony Richardson in their latest mock draft. Whatever they end with, expect Wood to be a key part of their new offensive scheme.
