The first pick off the board is about to sign.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff is expected to sign his contract today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. PFT has been told that the deal has been in place for weeks.

It’s a four-year, $27.9 million guaranteed deal, with an $18.5 million signing bonus, all determined by the Collective Bargaining Agreement, which has eliminated holdouts for high draft picks.

Goff is expected to beat out Case Keenum and emerge as the Week One starter in Los Angeles. The Rams didn’t move up to first overall in the draft to leave Goff on the bench.

Now the contract part is done and Goff can focus completely on earning his starting job.

  1. Stay healthy Goff. Then you will be able to survive the losing you are about to endure and have fun in the off seasons. Perhaps a trade in year 5 or 6 will enable you to exerience winning. Good luck…….

  2. I’m excited they drafted Goff because Keenum is not the long term answer. With that being said I think it would be foolish to trot Goff out there week 1 in a nationally televised Monday night game then turn around and face 3 straight stellar defenses in Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Arizona. He is the future no doubt but Keenum was more than serviceable when he became the starter last year IMO.

  3. I don’t like how St. Louis was treated, so I hope Goff turns out to be the next Sam Bradford, minus the injuries.

    Couldn’t win in the Pac 10, how do they expect him to win in the NFC West?
    ==================================

    Clearly you never watched any games out on the west coast or are very knowledgeable because it’s the Pac-12, not Pac-10. Also, Goff put up great numbers. Unfortunately, the defense was the worst in the nation and gave up even greater numbers.

    Idk maybe it’s the fact the football is a team sport, and the Cal defense in Goff collegiate career gave up a average of more than 38 pts a game.

    Schmitty,
    Can you please tell me when Tampa Bay’s defense became “stellar”?

    10th in total defense isn’t too shabby there Skippy.
