Rick L. Woods (born November 16, 1959) is a former professional football player, a defensive back in the NFL. He played safety and cornerback for six seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers (1982–86) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1987). Woods grew up in Boise and played high school football at Boise High and college football at Boise State, where he was a standout defensive back and punt returner. He was a member of the I-AA national championship team in 1980, and the 1981 team that reached the national semifinals. As a punt returner at BSU, he rarely called a fair catch, earning him the nickname "Riverboat Gambler." In the 1982 NFL Draft, Woods was selected in the fourth round (97th overall) by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
