JFM of the NY Jets wants to see Bobby Trees in Florham Park

In the NFL, the months of February and March represent the season of recruiting. Whenever a notable player gets released, other players around the league will add their two cents in the form of short social media posts that rile up their fanbases.

On Wednesday, the Tennessee Titans released wide receiver Robert Woods, and New York Jets defensive end John Franklin-Myers quickly jumped on the opportunity to suggest where Woods should go next.

“Come join the movement”, Franklin-Myers tweeted at Woods.

Franklin-Myers and Woods shared one season together as teammates with the Los Angeles Rams. Franklin-Myers played his 2018 rookie season with the Rams, which was the second of Woods’ eventual five seasons in L.A.

Woods has put together a very successful career after being selected by the Bills out of USC in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft. In 10 seasons, Woods has racked up 623 receptions for 7,604 yards and 37 touchdowns. He became a Super Bowl champion with the Rams in 2021.

The soon-to-be 31-year-old Woods appears to be on the downturn after a 2022 season in which he posted a career-low 31.0 receiving yards per game as a full-time starter with the Titans. It seems unlikely the Jets would pursue him as a starter, but he could be an intriguing depth option for New York, mostly due to the fact he would be a seamless fit in the Jets’ scheme.

Woods has familiarity with the Jets’ offense and has even played under some of their top coaches. Todd Downing, the Jets’ passing game coordinator, was Woods’ offensive coordinator with the Titans last season. Keith Carter, the Jets’ run game coordinator, was the Titans’ offensive line coach.

In addition, Woods’ time under Sean McVay with the Rams should have him prepared for Nathaniel Hackett’s Jets offense, as McVay and Hackett both come from the Shanahan coaching tree and operate variations of the west coast offense.
