Jared Goff Agrees To $134 Million Extension

Billy Woods | September 4th, 2019

During his short time in the league, quarterback Jared Goff has gone from being labeled a gigantic bust, to starring in a Super Bowl. The hard work has finally paid off, literally, as the Los Angeles Rams extend the quarterback for four-years, through the 2024 NFL season.

The four-year extension is worth $134 million, with a NFL-record $110 million guaranteed. The extension is worth more than Carson Wentz, who was selected one pick after Goff in the 2016 NFL Draft. During this offseason, Wentz agreed to a four-year extension with the Philadelphia Eagles worth $128 million, with $107.9 million guaranteed.

Before the hiring of head coach Sean McVay, Goff was considered a bust during his rookie season with Jeff Fisher. In his seven appearances in 2016, Goff passed for 1,089 yards and five touchdowns with seven interceptions. Acting as arguably the worst starting quarterback that season, many labeled Goff as a bust and questioned the decision making of the Rams front office.

Once McVay was hired, the young quarterback proved he was more than just hype. In 15 games in his sophomore season, Goff passed for 3,804 yards and 28 touchdowns with only seven interceptions. The Rams achieved a playoff berth with an 11-5 record, as Goff proved the naysayers wrong.

Following a strong second season, came an even more impressive third season. Goff maintained MVP relevancy deep into the regular season, as the Rams rolled to a 13-3 record and a Super Bowl berth. It sound’s crazy but given the play by both quarterbacks heading into the Super Bowl, it wasn’t a stretch of the imagination to say that Goff was the better quarterback before that game.

The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl behind the decisive play of quarterback Tom Brady, who was having a down season due to being 41-years old. Goff had statistically outplayed Brady all season. But down the stretch on the biggest Sunday of the year, Brady proved he was better.

Goff will be tasked with building off a successful 2018 campaign, which saw him pass for 4,688 yards and 32 touchdowns. He’s proven to be one of the best quarterbacks in the game, which is remarkable considering he’s only entering his fourth season.
