But Goff, whom the Rams made a move up the draft board to select first overall earlier that year, showed his potential, albeit in a Week 12 loss against the New Orleans Saints. With Goff established as one of the premier QBs in the National Football League, the Rams are looking to keep him locked in longterm.
Multiple media reports on Tuesday indicate that Goff will sign a four-year extension with the Rams valued at north of $32 million annually.
Goff's deal gives the quarterback a much-deserved raise.
With a contract such as this one in place for Goff, you have to wonder what will be in store for Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs once his negotiations begin sometime within the next year. In June, the Philadelphia Eagles offered Wentz $128 million with $107.9 million guaranteed. It's not a contract year for the Bears quarterback, but Trubisky is playing for a big payday that's only increasing as his agent sets new records.
Goff is making about $4.3 million this season before his pay is scheduled to jump to $22.8 million in 2020.
The team has agreed to terms with the quarterback on a four-year contract extension, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Michael Silver reported, per a source informed.
Goff has passed for 8,492 yards with 60 touchdowns and 19 interceptions while going 24-7 in 31 regular-season games as McVay's starter.
