Details are thus far scarce, but several are reporting that the Rams have signed QB Jared Goff to a four year extension.
We will update with more information as we learn of it, but an easy first impression is: why?
I can’t think of any reason why doing this now is a good idea, even if they think more highly of Goff than I do personally. There was still plenty of time to wait and see if he became worthy of a massive paycheck, especially when there is so much evidence that he’s more a product of McVay and the offense than his own talent.
The numbers on this one will surely be fascinating.
(And they’re in: According Ian Rapaport, it’s four years, $134 million. $110m guaranteed. Wow.)
