It looks like Jared Goff’s future with the Los Angeles Rams is a popular topic of discussion again thanks to Mike Florio.
These days, it’s absolutely insane to look at some of the money NFL quarterbacks pull in, and when looking at what other players at his position like Russell Wilson are making, Goff knows it’s only a matter of time before his turn is up.
Despite a rocky start to his career, Goff has managed to turn things around over the last two years playing under Sean McVay to show the Rams just what he’s capable of when provided the right weapons to work with.
From having a reliable offensive line to a strong receiving corps, Goff has played a key role in the success of the offense for Los Angeles over the last two seasons, and hopefully this is just the beginning of what should be a promising career.
With that being said, just because Goff has made progress over the last two seasons doesn’t necessarily mean all Rams fans are convinced that he’s the long-term answer at quarterback, which sounds insane to even think about.
In fact, the folks at Turf Show Times recently discussed how Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio wouldn’t be surprised at all of Goff failed to receive a second tract from Los Angeles.
Like everyone else, Florio is certainly entitled to his opinions since that’s one of the best things about being a sports fan, but this take on Goff sounds a little extreme.
Yes, Florio made some valid points during his interview on The Dan Patrick Show such as the fact that McVay inherited Goff, and may want a young quarterback of his own to develop down the road, but also keep in mind the reasons behind the Rams hiring their head coach in 2017.
One of the main factors that went into the decision to hire McVay back in 2017 was due to his history of developing quarterbacks, with the progress made by Kirk Cousins with the Washington Redskins standing out the most.
After giving up all those future draft picks to land Goff the way they did back in 2016, the hiring of McVay was the best decision the Rams could have made for the quarterback’s career, and his level of play from the last two seasons will back that statement up.
Hearing Florio’s belief that Goff won’t receive a second contract from will certainly upset some members of the Rams fan base, but on a positive note, at least the team has some time to make their decision since he’s under contract through 2020.
Then again, the argument can also be made that Los Angeles addressing Goff’s contract now instead of later could save them a little money, so it will be interesting to see how this situation plays out.
