Sooner or later, the Los Angeles Rams will need to decide on Jared Goff’s next contract.
After looking at all of the extensions handed out to key players last offseason by the Los Angeles Rams, Jared Goff knew that it was only a matter of time before the team most likely rewarded him for his stellar play.
Despite some of the concerns early on in his career, Goff seems to get better with experience each season, and after the Rams came up short in Super Bowl 53, all eyes will be on the former No. 1 pick to see if he can help the team make another run.
Of course, whether Goff’s contract situation will end up being a distraction is a different story since Sean McVay already hinted in March that Los Angeles was leaning towards holding off for now, which arguably seems fair.
Even if Goff’s fifth-year option for 2020 gets picked up as expected, the Rams realize they will need to strongly consider an extension at some point over the next year or so. And if the team decides to wait it out a bit while other top quarterbacks across the league up for new deals, this could give Goff a little leverage in the negotiation process down the road.
Until Goff’s next deal becomes official, this is going to be a topic that Los Angeles may not be able to escape, and it will be interesting to see what some of the other quarterbacks looking for new deals end up earning as well since they could play a factor for the Rams as well.
In fact, here are seven quarterbacks worth keeping an eye on moving forward that could receive new deals before Goff, and help determine what kind of money he makes in his next contract.
