Jared Goff, Rams reportedly agree to massive four-year contract extension

Jared Goff’s contract status has been a big question for the Los Angeles Rams all offseason, and the team is answering those questions with a big deal.

The Rams are signing Goff to a four-year contract extension that keeps him with the team through 2024, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says the deal is expected to contain the largest guarantee in NFL history.

According to Spotrac, the largest amount guaranteed at signing went to Matt Ryan, who received $94.5 million from the Falcons. They have Carson Went as the most guaranteed in practical amounts at over $107 million.

Goff, 24, was drafted by the Rams No. 1 overall in 2016. He had a brutal rookie season under Jeff Fisher, who was later fired. The team brought in Sean McVay as head coach, who turned the team around immediately and helped Goff flourish.

Under McVay, Goff has passed for 60 touchdowns and just 19 interceptions. However, his play in the postseason has been mediocre (2 touchdowns/2 interceptions, 55 percent passing) in four games, leading to questions about whether he can win them a Super Bowl. The Rams apparently believe so.

Goff was under contract to make $4.2 million in base salary in 2019 and nearly $23 million in 2020. The four-year extension will keep him under contract with the team for the following four seasons. There were questions about whether the Rams would give Goff such a deal. Now we know the answer.
