Robert Woods drawing interest from Los Angeles Chargers, Anthony Lynn

The former USC wide receiver could be going back to Southern California.

Robert Woods played his college football at the University of Southern California and could be headed back to SoCal. The Los Angeles Chargers are rumored to have interest in the Buffalo Bills receiver according to Josh Reed of WIVB in Buffalo.

The move would make a ton of sense. The Chargers are coached by Anthony Lynn, Buffalo’s former offensive coordinator and interim head coach. Woods is a solid blocker and possession receiver who can do the types of things Lynn wants to do in all phases of the offense.

Woods caught 51 passes for 613 receiving yards and one touchdown in 2016. That will likely be enough to earn him almost $8 million a season, though the current crop of free agent receivers is pretty deep. Woods could certainly make a large impact on a team that actually tries to pass the ball more instead of pace the NFL in rushing attempts for the last two seasons.
