S - Carolina Panthers
Safety Xavier Woods has agreed to terms with the Panthers on a three-year, $15.75 million deal.
The former sixth-round pick by Dallas played for the Vikings last season where he tallied three interceptions and two forced fumbles. He vastly improved on the percentage of completions by opposing quarterbacks, though he did allow six touchdowns on the year when targeted.
The Vikings are signing former Cowboys safety Xavier Woods to a one-year deal.
The contract is worth up to $2.25 million. Woods should be a good fit in Minnesota's defense, which wasn't as sharp as usual in 2020.
Cowboys' HC Mike McCarthy said Thursday that he expects FS Xavier Woods (groin) to play at "full capacity" in the team's Week 1 matchup with the Rams.
Woods was not listed on the original injury report, but missed over a week of practice due to a groin injury. He is expected to be all systems go for Sunday’s Week 1 matchup against the Rams. Woods will serve as the Cowboys’ starting FS and is currently 63rd among all defensive backs in the latest expert consensus rankings for Week 1.
Xavier Woods racked up three solo tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble during Monday’s win over the Giants.
Woods is third on the team with 42 total tackles through Week 9. He is worth a roster spot in deeper IDP leagues only.
Xavier Woods put up 11 total tackles and a forced fumble during Sunday’s win over the New York Giants.
Woods is only worth adding in super deep IDP leagues, but in most cases, he should be left on waivers. Keep an eye on the Cowboys defense this season, there could be a few IDP superstars emerging.
