Woods was a pioneer in touchdown celebrations when he unleashed the “Ickey Shuffle” during his rookie season with the Cincinnati Bengals in 1988. The Shuffle, which went on to be imitated by countless touchdown scorers, consists of three hops to the left, three to the right, three hops back, a spike of the ball, and a finger twirl.
