The third-year linebacker out of Maryland spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons on the Bears' active roster. However, with the addition of linebacker Alec Ogletree, among others, Woods was the odd man out and spent time on the practice squad this season. In his two-year career with Chicago, Woods has 19 total tackles, 12 solo, and a fumble recovery in 25 games.
As Woods moves to Detroit, he is primed for a much better opportunity than the one he was presented in Chicago this season. With reports that the Lions are trying to trade veteran linebacker Jamie Collins, it makes sense to add a young linebacker like Woods.
The Bears will see Woods and the Lions in Week Four at Soldier Field on October 3.
