When your neighbor builds an addition on their house, you can’t help but notice.
But Rams quarterback Jared Goff wants to make sure his own home is in order.
Via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times, Goff said he couldn’t help but see the $128 million contract extension Carson Wentz just signed with the Eagles.
“You definitely think about it,” Goff said. “But at the same time, I know none of that is even possible without playing well on the field, and being available on the field.
“So just continue to do what I’ve been doing the last few years and be myself and let it take care of itself.”
That’s an answer that’s as dull as possible, to what is as important a question as the Rams will face in the coming years. They said last week Wentz’s deal didn’t change their timetable for a Goff extension, but coach Sean McVay said he’s happy to be saddled with Goff as long as possible.
At the moment, Goff’s under contract for two more years, this season and the $22 million-plus fifth-year option for 2020.
Asked about his timeline for a new deal, Goff replied: “Whatever’s right. It’s not for me to worry about. It’s for the team and my agent to work on.”
Whenever it happens, it’s going to be the kind of deal everyone in the neighborhood will recognize.
