Woods was recently released this past week by the Cowboys.
The former undrafted free agent defensive tackle out of USC in 2016 has also spent time with the Tennessee Titans organization (2016-17) in addition to the Cowboys (2018-20).
At 6’1”, 310 pounds (with 31” inch arms), Woods has recorded 83 tackles (25 solo), 4 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, a pass defensed, and 2 fumble recoveries during 40 career games (32 starts) with both the Titans and Cowboys.
He had 23 tackles (7 solo), a sack, and 2 total QB pressures during 14 games (7 starts) for the Cowboys this past season:
Cowboys waived NT Antwaun Woods, source confirmed. Woods sparked defense’s midseason improvement in 2020 when moved to starting lineup. Team has added six D-linemen since March (three free agents, three draft picks). All six with at least 34-inch arms. Length a Dan Quinn emphasis— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) May 5, 2021
Per PFF (subscription), Woods was their 85th highest graded interior defender with a +58.3 overall grade in 2020.
If signed, Woods would provide a rotational nose tackle at the one-technique spot for the Colts (behind starter Grover Stewart) and improve their overall interior depth.
Still only 28 years old, he’s a quality backup defensive tackle.
