The Los Angeles Rams didn’t seem to be in a hurry to get an extension done with franchise quarterback Jared Goff this past offseason.
With less than a week to go before their season opener, that’s about to change. According to NFL Media’s Mike Silver, Los Angeles is closing in on an extension with Goff.
Silver’s colleague over at NFL Media, Ian Rapoport, notes that the deal is expected to be worth north of $32 million annually.
Meanwhile, ESPN’s Adam Schefter notes that the deal is as good as done.
This would put Goff on par with fellow 2016 draftee, Carson Wentz, who inked a four-year, $128 million extension with the Philadelphia Eagles during the offseason.
Goff, 24, has put up a 24-7 record as a starter over the past two seasons while tallying 60 touchdowns compared to just 19 interceptions. He’s coming off a surprising Super Bowl appearance with the Rams.
