Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Woods said the team is “shooting for” the Super Bowl, during an appearance on the Howard Simon Show.

The Bills hired former New York Jets coach Rex Ryan as their head coach in January after finishing 9-7 last season and missing the playoffs for the 15th consecutive season.

Buffalo’s off-season moves included trading linebacker Kiko Alonso for running back LeSean McCoy and signing wide receiver Percy Harvin and offensive lineman Richie Incognito.

Woods was asked in a radio interview what Ryan's “general message to the team” has been so far.

“Just get to the playoff ... I mean, get to the Super Bowl, actually,” Woods said. “He said nothing less than the Super Bowl, just with this team and the possibilities of our offense and our defense. That’s what we’re shooting for.

“We haven't been to the playoffs, but we're knocking at the door, and I think this team right here is just too good and has too many weapons on offense and defense to fall short of that.”

Woods, 23, has played two seasons with the Bills since being selected in the second round of the 2013 draft. Last season, Woods caught 65 passes for 699 yards and five touchdowns.
