Jared Goff says of contract: “Not on my mind at all”

The Rams are in no apparent rush to start contract talks with quarterback Jared Goff.

Likewise, he’s not ready to start talking about them either.

Via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times, the Rams quarterback said his future riches are not anything he’s thinking about at the moment.

Not on my mind at all,” Goff said. “I know the deal and understand that I hired an agent for that reason, and things always work out. You continue to play well, it will work itself out.”

Goff’s entering the fourth year of his rookie deal, and the Rams will almost certainly kick the can down the road with the fifth-year option to cover 2020. But while the Eagles are already discussing how and when to commit to Carson Wentz, the Rams haven’t started the process with Goff.

While the conventional wisdom is that they eventually will extend him because that’s what teams with incumbent quarterbacks always do, coach Sean McVay’s quarterback-whisperer reputation might make them at least think about the possibility and/or wisdom of playing wait-and-see with Goff.

  1. He may not be talking about it but you can guarantee his agent is keeping the phone lines with the GM busy. If not,he should get a new agent.

  2. “coach Sean McVay’s quarterback-whisperer reputation might make them at least think about the possibility and/or wisdom of playing wait-and-see with Goff.”

    Rams haven’t shown that kind of wisdom since they moved on from Warner.

  3. Do not give him elite QB money right now. Goff along with Dak Prescott and Wentz need to prove themselves first.

  4. Goff is excellent when given a long time to throw to open receivers.
    Lets see how he does behind a so-so Oline with average receivers.
    Can he think for himself or does he need McVay telling him what to do?

    I can see him being paid a fortune only to have the team realize he’s not worth it.

  5. He was a bust with the wrong coach and system. Belichick exposed him. Next year he regresses. 2020 he is a backup. Just my opinion. Kudos to McVey for getting what he did from him.

  6. Not many QBs reach the SB. Goff showed that with the right system/coaching and talent around him he can. That means someone is going to pay him. No, he didn’t light it up in the SB but nor did Pats as it was a defensive masterclass. If J McCourty hadn’t made that ridiculous save, Goff would have thrown one more TD than Brady did. And if Edelman hadn’t made a couple of his chain-moving catches, or if Gurley was healthy, or a couple of other big plays go a different way, the World would today be (ridiculously) annointing Goff and McVay as the New Camelot and (just as ridiculously) claiming the Pats were finally spent. Only time will tell but my guess is Goff will carry on to be one of the better QBs, not one of the worse.

    This is how two people can watch the exact same thing yet see it totally different!

    While you claim to have seen a defensive masterclass I saw two ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE OFFENSE’S that made those D’s look like they were 10X better than they actually were! It was one of the worst offensively played SBs I can remember and I changed the channel half way through the 3rd quarter.

  8. Goff, I honestly believe will be Salary Cap casualty at the end of this upcoming season. Goff is a steady QB, however, he lacks the ability to improvise on a consistent basis. With Girly still the unknown quantity, Goff needs to take command of this team.

    Eh, Mark Bulger was fine. He just got murdered behind the lack of O-Line, and all the receivers got old/retired/injured.

    Nick Foles already showed that the year before, except Nick Foles actually put up HUGE numbers and won the Super Bowl.

  11. I’ve seen about 40 Super Bowls & this guy played the worst one at QB, I’ve ever witnessed. It would have been fitting for him to throw up at the post game presser.
