The Latest on the Tennessee Titans’ Salary Cap Situation

NASHVILLE – There are plenty of reasons Tennessee Titans fans should feel good about the trade that brought veteran wide receiver Robert Woods to the team.

It’s not every day, after all, that a team gives up just a sixth-round pick (in 2023) for a receiver who averaged 89 catches, 1,096 yards and five touchdowns for the Rams for three seasons (2018-20) and was on pace for similar numbers last season before he tore an ACL.

One of the few concerns is Woods’ significant 2022 cap hit, a figure that was initially believed to be $ 13.5 million. But a source said Tuesday that as part of the trade, the Rams paid Woods’ $ 3.5 million 2022 roster bonus. That lowers Woods’ cap figure with the Titans to $ 10 million, a reduction of 27 percent.
