Woods has spent the last three years in Tennessee with the Titans. He recorded just 18 tackles last season.

With Parry (arrest) and Jones (lack of production) likely set to be released before the season, that could leave Woods in a prominent role in 2017.
According to Pro Football Focus, Woods overall player grade of 46.1 last season would have graded him as the worst Colts defender. So going into 2017 with Woods having a prominent role is not an ideal situation.
Woods is just another player that new general manager Chris Ballard has brought in to increase competition. And his two-year $5 million deal is team friendly.
