Jared Goff expresses desire to stay with Lions

Even though the team’s incredible run came to an end in the NFC Championship, Jared Goff, the new quarterback for the Detroit Lions, made a good living for himself during his finest season to date (2023).

Talks over a contract extension with Goff should pick some steam this offseason, according to NFL Media. According to Spotrac, Goff has one more year left on his deal, which calls for a basic pay of $21.65 million in 2024. Prior to this season, the quarterback and the Lions allegedly had brief discussions about a contract extension.

According to Mlive.com, Goff declared on Monday, “I’ve loved every second of my time here, and would love more.” I adore all of my teammates, the coaches, and Dan Campbell. Yes, that would be fantastic. It’s not up to me, though.

This postseason, Goff broke a decade-long playoff win drought for two different teams, making NFL history as the first quarterback to do it. Additionally, he made history by being the tenth starting quarterback to play for multiple teams in the conference title game. Spotrac’s market value tool predicts that Goff’s next contract will likely be a four-year, $149,853,080 extension with an AAV of $37.4 million. With that hypothetical deal, Goff’s yearly pay would rank him as the fifteenth-highest-paid quarterback.

It’s not my decision, Goff remarked. I adore this location, and as time passes, we’ll see what transpires. But yes, I adore this location, Dan, my teammates, and all of the coaches. It’s up to my delegates and, of course, the folks upstairs (in the front office); it’s not in my control.

Much of the credit for the Lions’ two postseason victories goes to Goff. In the 65 seasons prior to this one, Detroit had only one postseason victory. Goff won 12 regular-season games in 2023 while completing 67.3% of his throws for 4,575 yards, 30 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. With the Lions, all achieved career highs. Goff completed 69.4% of his throws for 837 yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions in three postseason games.
