The start of the NFL's new league year is just one week away and teams are already starting to figure out which free agents should be targeted. This year's wide receiver class includes Robert Woods, who racked up 527 yards and 2 touchdowns on 53 receptions (91 targets) across 17 games with the Tennessee Titans in 2022.

It's no secret that Woods is past his prime and a 1,000-yard season likely isn't in the cards anymore for the 30-year-old. However, he remains an experienced slot receiver capable of serving as a both a veteran mentor and a safe third-down option. With that in mind, here are three of the most likely landing spots for Woods.

Robert Woods Free Agent Destinations

1. Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills were the team that selected Woods in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft and now they are the team that might just welcome him back with open arms. The Bills' offense was missing an intermediate option in 2022 as Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis tended to run deeper routes. Woods could fill the type of role that Emmanuel Sanders did for them in 2021, as he knows how to stay on the field and find the gaps in the defense. Woods averages a reliable 53.5 receiving yards per game in his career and would be a logical short-term option for a Buffalo team that remains in cap space trouble.

2. Green Bay Packers

Listing the Green Bay Packers as a landing spot for Woods only makes sense if Aaron Rodgers is the team's starting quarterback in 2023. That is because Green Bay would be all-in on trying to win a Super Bowl instead of building for the future, which would be the case if Jordan Love is handed the gig. Rodgers has shown in the past that he loves having veteran WRs on the roster as Randall Cobb has averaged 31.7 yards per game over the last two seasons. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was the Los Angeles Rams' offensive coordinator in 2017 and worked with Woods during a season in which the veteran wideout logged 781 receiving yards to go along with 5 touchdowns.

3. Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have a number of key decisions to make heading into the offseason. The reigning NFC Champions have starters on both sides of the ball set to hit free agency and obviously will not be able to bring back all of them. One roster spot that remains weak is slot receiver. Zach Pascal disappointed on his one-year deal (150 yards) and DeVonta Smith showed he is much more dangerous when lined up on the outside. Woods can provide immediate production and has tallied 507 rushing yards in his career, too. Being able to line Woods up in the backfield would add an entirely new element to Nick Sirianni's already powerful rushing attack.
