Jared Goff, of the Los Angeles Rams, agrees to a record-setting deal for the fourth-year starting quarterback. It was not a matter of when they were extending him, but how much. Reports indicate that Goff deal is for a four-year $134M ($110M guaranteed), earning him about $33.5M per year.
Not bad for a quarterback who once labeled as a bust after producing a 0-7 record in his first NFL starts under then-head coach Jeff Fisher. Playing for head coach Sean McVay, Goff collected 24 wins with just seven losses. Goff helped engineer the Rams to two-consecutive NFC West Titles, NFC Championship, and a trip to Super Bowl LIII. Although the Rams did not bring the Lombardy Trophy home after a 13-3 defeat to the New England Patriots, he embarked he will get the team back and win.
Les Snead, the Rams General Manager, and Coach McVay also received contract extensions during the pre-season. Rams have locked up critical pieces of this team, and next will concentrate on linebacker Corey Littleton, wide-receiver Cooper Kupp, tight-end Gerald Everett, and cornerback Marcus Peters.
Goff contract extension comes just days before the Rams traveling to Charlotte to play against the Carolina Panthers in their season opener. Speculation will come to arise on how sharp Goff will perform and other starters who did not play a single down in the pre-season.
