Jared Goff
Jared Goff Gets a 4 Year Extension worth $212 Million
1 week ago

The Detroit Lions have signed QB Jared Goff to an extension worth $212 Million and $170 million guaranteed.

The Detroit Lions have been handing out a lot of money this offseason.  The Lions have made Penei Sewell the highest paid offensive lineman, Amon-Ra St. Brown the highest paid wide receiver at the time of the signing (AJ Brown signed a couple days after), and now they have the second highest paid quarterback annually in Jared Goff.

 

Goff was once deemed to be a mediocre quarterback when drafted number 1 overall by the Rams.  When traded to the Lions he had a resurgence, helping improve the Lions offense with his quarterback play.  Goff led the Lions to their first NFC North title since 1993 and their first NFC Championship Game appearance since 1991.  The Lions have rewarded Goff with a bag full of money making him the second highest paid quarterback annually with a contract extension of 4-years worth up to $212 million, and $170 million guaranteed.

 

Goff emerges with an extension while a group of other quarterbacks still awaiting a new deal include division rival Jordan Love, Dak Prescott, Tua Tagovailoa, and Trevor Lawrence.  It is yet to be seen which one of these quarterbacks will come out with the largest bag but for now Goff can sit back and enjoy his well-deserved extension.

 

As for fantasy, Goff has finished top 10 in each of the last two seasons.  There has not been much turnover in the offense as  they have the same offensive coordinator, running back group, and very little changed with their receiving core.  Hendon Hooker is still a stash barring injury to Goff. Jared Goff is the perfect second quarterback to have in your SuperFlex dynasty leagues.
