Rams aren’t focused on extending Jared Goff, Marcus Peters

The days preceding the start of an NFL regular season often entail a stream of news reports regarding contract extensions finalized before the real games start. In L.A., that’s not likely to be happening.

Asked Monday by reporters whether progress has been made on contracts for quarterback Jared Goff or cornerback Marcus Peters, Rams coach Sean McVay made it clear that nothing is going on.

“I think right now we’ve been so busy just kind of handling training camp, things like that,” McVay said. “Those are two very important players to us as we move forward this season. That’s kind of where we’re at right now with that.”

Goff is signed through 2020, thanks to the fifth-year option that applies to his rookie deal. Peters, who was acquired via trade in 2018, is in the final year of his rookie contract.

Of course, Rams COO Kevin Demoff had said in June that a new deal for McVay wasn’t a priority, and then McVay had a new deal the following month. So maybe McVay’s comments about Goff and Peters actually mean that, within the next few weeks both Goff and Peters will be getting new deals.

  1. Hope Goff is smart enough to follow Luck’s lead .Sign 5 yr ext with 50 mil in bonuses ; then quit & keep the money.That’s what a real man would do … oh wait .. that’s what a real man did.

  2. Once the Rams have to start paying guys that team is going to take a BIG step back. Jared Goff isn’t a QB talent who can carry a team on his back , Goff is a game manager more of a point guard or distributor who needs a lot of talent around him at the skill positions with a really good OL in front of him to succeed. After LG Saffold and John Sullivan weren’t brought back signing elsewhere w/ LT Whitworth almost 40yrs old & dramatically slowing down over the last month of the season last year I think we will see Jared Goff take a sizable step back this season because he no longer has a good OL in front of him & Goff is falls apart under pressure if you can hit him , keep pressure in his face and knock him off his spot not letting him set his feet. The interior of that OL is very weak & will cost the Rams the question is how much.

  3. Peters was good until politics got in his way. He’s in the league for 3 more years, tops. 1 more to finish his rookie contract, then some team will pay him 3 times what he’s worth. Then he’ll get supplanted by an undrafted rookie, then he’ll be out of a job.

  4. I would not resign Goff period. He is garbage. That super bowl will show everyone how to beat that team. The rams in general will be lucky to be 8-8.

    it has already started

    this is why they can’t pay them

    Just 24 hours ago, McVay was bragging about how he’s excited to grow and learn with Goff. Why would you wait to pay your franchise QB?

    Hint: They don’t think he is their franchise QB and worth 30 mil per.

  6. Goff is a GOOD QB when given a lot of time and throwing to open receivers.

    (As are many QBs)

    My question is can he think for himself and read defenses?
    If he’s totally dependent on McVay then look for other teams to start scheming a changing defense the last 10 seconds.

  7. Translation: We have to pay for the new stadium and we’re not going to give $30 million a year to a guy who shrinks on the big stage.

  8. I laugh every time I read the comments about Goff. He is still so young, and has improved every year. The comments about McVay carrying him is the same crap Tom Brady had surrounding him. Give him a chance. Do I think he is a top 5 QB? Not right now, but he has the potential. Has anyone every considered how complicated McVay’s schemes are? Perhaps a 24 year old QB might take some time to master it. Us Rams fans who actually watch the games are happy with him. Every one expects instant perfection, and that is unreasonable.

  9. I really hope Goff is our guy and he takes another step forward this year. Really talented with time but we’ll see how he manages more pressure. Also think this yr. McVay will need to make more adjustment to a league that thinks it has caught up. People dont remember how versatile Rams O was with Kupp in the slot and now our full arsenal of WRs can cause all kinds of match up issues. If Goff starts strong i think he gets an extension during the bye week…Rams are smart for waiting
