Woods holding out hope

In an ideal world for impending free agent WR Robert Woods, he’d be back in Buffalo and QB Tyrod Taylor would be in the fold for the foreseeable future. But Woods knows the business of NFL football doesn’t always operate that way. Still, he’s holding out hope that he can be back with the Bills in 2017 and beyond with Taylor as his QB.

“I think there’s always hope,” said Woods in an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio. “I finished out well with them had a good talk with Doug Whaley upstairs. There’s a whole new coaching staff coming in so there could be different plans. I’ve got to speak with them and see their plans and see what happens with the quarterback decision there.”

Woods did admit that Tyrod’s future with the Bills will have an impact on his decision of whether he wants to re-sign with Buffalo should an offer come his way from the club that drafted in him in the second round in 2013.

“Everything factors in. It has to be the right amount as well as the quarterback decision,” he said. “They don’t have a quarterback right now. Tyrod is a pending free agent. EJ Manuel is coming up as a free agent and there are many quarterbacks on the market as well. Who knows the decisions that are going on upstairs, but we’ll all find out in a few weeks. I could see Buffalo still sticking with Tyrod most definitely.”

Woods was asked point blank if he’d like to still be a Bill.

“Yeah it does (matter),” said Woods. “That’s my first team, my first love, the team that drafted me. You don’t always come in the league and picture you’ll get drafted and have that long career and go out and be that team, be that draft pick on that team that goes out and wins Super Bowls. There’s still a chance to do that in Buffalo.”
