The Los Angeles Rams added to an explosive offense on Thursday night by signing free agent wide receiver Allen Robinson to a three-year deal. As a result, NFL insider Adam Schefter sees veteran Robert Woods as a prime trade candidate and reports that the team has already been receiving calls.

It makes sense given LA is still open to re-signing Odell Beckham Jr. and Woods did not seem to gel with quarterback Matthew Stafford prior to his injury. With Woods expected to be healthy by the start of training camp, let's take a look at three of the most likely trade destinations for the nine-year pro.

Robert Woods Trade Destinations

1. Green Bay Packers

The Packers recently dealt Pro Bowler Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders in a blockbuster deal, which leaves them shallow at the WR position. Allen Lazard is the top option right now and he has never racked up more than 550 yards in a season. It's worth noting that head coach Matt LaFleur was the Rams' offensive coordinator in 2017 and has seen what Woods is capable of firsthand. The 29-year-old's ability to get open over the middle or take on a blocking role in the rushing attack should allow his versatility to shine in Green Bay. Acquiring a weapon like Woods would be one way to appease quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

2. Indianapolis Colts

It's been surprising to see the Colts so quiet in free agency given two of their top three wide receivers from last season are no longer under contract (T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal). Pairing Woods with Michael Pittman Jr. would provide a perfect one-two punch on the offensive side of the ball. Woods has two 1,000-yard seasons under his belt and would thrive in the slot for whoever Indianapolis has at quarterback. Keep in mind the Colts have the most cap space available in the NFL and a myriad of picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. Trading for Roberts may be a better option than bringing in any free agent left on the board.

3. Atlanta Falcons

The news of Calvin Ridley's suspension for the entire 2022 season certainly puts a damper on the Falcons' future plans at wide receiver. There isn't a single player on the roster that finished with more than 410 receiving yards in 2021 besides tight end Kyle Pitts. That is not good news for a team reportedly in the running to trade for Pro Bowl quarterback Deshaun Watson. Woods would bring a sense of stability to Atlanta given his talent to haul in contested catches and break tackles down the field. There's no denying that a No. 1 WR role would surely entice the veteran pro, too. Simply put, Woods would fit in well with the Falcons.
