The team filled one of the vacancies by signing UDFA rookie TE Travis Vokolek off the Ravens’ practice squad and the other by promoting LB Tyreek Maddox-Williams from their practice squad. 

Woods, 27, wound up going undrafted out of Maryland in 2018. He signed with the Bears following a tryout at rookie minicamp. However, he was waived coming out of the preseason and signed to the practice squad. 

The Bears re-signed Woods to a futures deal for the 2019 season and he made the roster each of the past two seasons. The team then re-signed him to a one-year deal before waiving him coming out of the preseason.

Chicago re-signed Woods to the practice squad prior to the 2021 season. However, Woods was later signed off of the Bears’ practice squad by the Lions. He was set to be a restricted free agent prior to re-signing with Detroit.

Detroit opted to bring Woods back on a one-year deal in 2022. He signed with the Cardinals in 2023. 

In 2023, Woods appeared in 11 games for the Cardinals and recorded 61 total tackles, two tackles for loss, 0.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one pass deflection.
