The Los Angeles Rams’ offense is now officially sponsored by the Pac-12 following the offseason acquisition of former Oregon State wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
California’s Jared Goff and USC’s Robert Woods, along with Cooks, form a dynamic trio that the Rams hope can pace one of the league’s prolific aerial attacks.

ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry highlights how Cooks’ arrival adds a new level of intrigue to the Rams’ offense and Goff’s progression.
Cooks has caught 27 touchdowns in four seasons and his ability to stretch the field, along with Woods’ sure hands and return to health, will be paramount as the Rams seek to repeat as the NFL’s highest-scoring team and win a second consecutive NFC West title.
“He’s going to fit in very nice,” Woods said of his new teammate. “You know you seen him the first couple of days tearing things up. You see his speed already. I think he’s a big impact for this offense.”
Goff also praised the acquisition of Cooks, who appeared in the Super Bowl last year with the New England Patriots.
“It’s a great, great guy to have in the room with those other guys,” Goff said. “I think you can’t ask for much more with Brandin, Robert, Cooper, that combination.”
Woods was the Rams’ top receiver until a Week 11 injury.
With Cooks and Woods both healthy, Goff should have plenty of options this fall.
“Big improvements from last year,” Woods said. “Just our timing with Jared, the offense is more advanced than where we were at this point, but just moving forward and still trying to grasp more of the concepts.”
