The Los Angeles Rams continue to lock their key players into long-term contracts.
Less than 10 days after extending cornerback Jalen Ramsey and six days after agreeing on an extension with wide receiver Cooper Kupp, receiver Robert Woods got his contract extended.
Woods agreed to a four-year extension with the Rams, the team announced Friday.
Both ESPN and NFL Network reported, citing a source, that Woods agreed to a $65 million extension worth a maximum of $68 million, with $32 million guaranteed.
With the contract extensions for Woods and Kupp, quarterback Jared Goff's primary pass-game threats will be signed through 2025 and 2023, respectively.
And that’s why he’s Mr. Reliable.

The Rams' core of talent is locked for the long haul. Both Goff and All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald are signed through 2024, and Ramsey is signed through 2025.
Originally drafted by the Buffalo Bills, Woods joined the Rams as a free agent in 2017. The move was a boon for the former USC Trojan, who thrived in his return to the L.A. Coliseum. After posting a career-high 781 yards in his first season with the Rams, he had back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons in 2018 and 2019.
