Lions Maligned QB signs $212-million extension

Lions QB Jared Goff has been much maligned throughout his career, but after a run to the NFC Championship game he has been rewarded with a monster four-year $212-million extension.

“It was mostly security. You can go back and forth on the numbers and whatnot, and that wasn’t really the thing that was ever something I was extremely concerned with,” Goff said. “It was the security and the no-trade clause and all of that stuff, knowing that all that was in there and feeling secure in knowing that I can finally put that behind me and be excited about what’s to come.”

Lions more than happy with their QB

Lions head coach Dan Campbell has been very vocal in his support of Goff since the teams acquired him in a trade for Matthew Stafford. Some claimed the trade was nothing more than a salary-dump for the Rams, but how wrong they were.

“It’s a good chapter closing of the last three years if you want to say,” Goff said. “Now, I’m more driven and more fired up than ever to go even harder and put the pedal to the medal even more to bring a Super Bowl to the city, and that’s what’s most important.”

“The Lions, they recognize that upstairs to know that we have three players that are due for a new deal and took care of them,” Goff said. “I think that potential free agents see that and potential draft picks in the future see that and know that if you play well, you are taken care of.

“Us three are three guys that are very motivated and driven to win a Super Bowl, and it’s not just us three, though. There’s 53 guys and 11 guys on offense for every snap. We plan to do our part, but it’s fun to know that I’ll be able to play with those guys for quite a bit longer.”
