In June 2019, Rams coach Sean McVay gave quarterback Jared Goff a $33.5 million contract. Nineteen months later, McVay gave Goff a one-way ticket to Detroit, with an extra first-round pick tucked into the trade package to unload the deal that McVay had quickly come to regret.
So what happened when McVay called Goff to talk about the trade? Via Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, Goff hung up on McVay.
McVay did little to conveal his glee after upgrading at quarterback, and he actually got a little salty when his public gushing about Matthew Stafford prompted folks in the media to draw the obvious conclusion that McVay didn’t feel nearly the same way about Goff.
Goff gets his chance to take out any lingering frustrations today. Unfortunately for him, he lacks the help around him that he had in L.A. With the Rams at 5-1 and the Lions at 0-6, this one could get ugly quickly.
