Lions’ Jared Goff provides update on contract extension talks after career year




The Detroit Lions are coming off their best season in recent memory in 2023. The club won its division for the first time since 1993 and won a playoff game for the first time since 1991. This rise over the past few years which culminated with this brilliant campaign saw Jared Goff at the helm as the team’s quarterback, and one wonders whether or not the good times would continue beyond the upcoming 2024 season.

Goff is entering the final year of his contract, but it appears both sides could be working toward an extension.

“You never want to say something,” Goff told reporters Tuesday about the possibility of a new contract ahead, via the Detroit Free Press. “There are discussions and Brad (Holmes) said what he told you and I will say the same thing. There have been discussions. Yes, my agent is aware, he is doing a good job and I am doing trust these guys.”

Jonathan Jones, CBS Sports’ top NFL insider reported in January that Goff and the Lions were very interested in an extension this offseason, and there’s little reason to doubt that one won’t be resolved before the start of next season. Goff is currently expected to be a bargain, as he is expected to make around $27.3 million in 2024. The 10 highest-paid quarterbacks in the league have an average annual salary between $40 million (Matthew Stafford, Dak Prescott and Daniel Jones). ) at $55 million (Joe Burrow). Jones’ previous report says Goff’s impending extension could average “somewhere in the 40s.”

The former No. 1 overall pick arrived in Detroit in 2021 as part of the blockbuster trade that sent Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams. While Los Angeles managed to win a Lombardi Trophy with Stafford, Goff and the Lions have fared quite well during his tenure. Goff even recently noted that the trade was “the greatest thing that ever happened to me.”
