With the departure of wide receiver A.J. Brown, new Titans WR Robert Woods steps into a much bigger role than many have anticipated. The Titans will need him to be a consistent target for Ryan Tannehill. They also expect Treylon Burks to play a big role on offense in 2022, but that is still a question mark.
Regardless, Woods looks to be in really good health right now during Titans minicamp. Physically and mentally, he seems ready to provide a lot for Tennessee this season and beyond. He has been known for being a silky route runner as well as one of the best run-blocking receivers in the NFL over the past few years.

Woods is making decisive cuts. Those are one of the hardest aspects to do consistently this early after an ACL tear. The progress is impressive, but the Titans aren’t rushing him. They will give him whatever time he needs, but he isn’t purposefully holding back in any way.

Robert Woods says he’s pleased with the cuts he’s been able to make with where he is recovering from the knee injury. He likes the speeds he’s been able to hit running on the side with trainers. #Titans

The new WR for the Titans has been showing these glimpses since the middle of May. He tore his ACL in November. That recovery timeline of around 7 months is one of the most underrated storylines for the Titans so far this off-season. Woods seems to be ahead of schedule and getting stronger every single day.
