The Los Angeles Rams and quarterback Jared Goff are reportedly close to a new contract extension. The deal is rumored to be around a 4-year deal worth around $32 million/year with much of the contract guaranteed, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.
Nothing is official quite yet, but a contract is close enough to be reportedly about a few days away from being signed. If the Rams do end up extending Goff’s contract, it show’s how confident the Rams are with Goff on the team just days before Week 1 of the 2019 season. Currently, Goff is playing on the last year of his rookie contract with a picked up option for the 2020 season.
The Rams have invested a lot in the No. 1 overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. It took plenty of compensation just to draft the rights for Jared Goff. Overall, it has worked out in the Rams’ favor considering he helped lead the Rams to a Super Bowl appearance. In three seasons with the Rams, he’s earned 9,581 passing yards, 65 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.
The contract details have been revealed to be a 4-year, $134 million contract. Goff is the recipient of the largest guaranteed contract sum of $110 million.
