Buffalo reached a four-year agreement with second-round pick and rookie receiver Robert Woods, a source tells ESPN.com's AFC East blog. Woods was out of town in Los Angeles for this weekend NFLPA's Rookie Premiere and is expected to sign the contract with Buffalo in the next few days.

Now we just have to get through EJ's holdout. ;)

Glad to see our FO getting this wrapped up pretty quickly... the new CBA has been nice for rookie signings.

The new Cba is so much better getting these rookies signed for reasonable deals.

Well, my tongue was firmly planted in cheek with that.

EJ will get signed within the week, probably. Byrd might not be re-signed at all, depends on what Byrd wants really.

Loved Howard Simon's column which mentioned this "situation." He advocated the show me the money approach which I agree with. Didn't realize Goldson(sp) got 5yr 41mil w/ 22 guaranteed. Byrd is a much better player IMO

Yeah but Goodson will probably be a salary casualty in about 2 yrs. It happens all the time.  If Super Mario doesn't have a monster year then he could follow this path as well.

Opened my browser this morning and got REALLY excited when I saw the headline. Clicked the link and realized it is Robert WoodS that they reached an agreement with not Eric Wood. Still exciting, but I was a little disappointed when I realized my error.

Congrats to Woods.   I am impressed with everything I have seen on him so far.   His highlights, pro day , character , stats , etc.   are all on point .   He is as clean of a prospect as they come .    Great pick !!!!

He thinks Buffalo women are ugly (though  after FSU, every place is a step down).

Seriously, Woods is Reggie Wayne Lite.  We just need Manuel to be his Peyton.  Dude is smooth.
