Jared Goff says ‘there have been discussions’ about a contract extension with the Lions

One of the hot topics all offseason has been the contract status of Lions quarterback Jared Goff. The Pro Bowler is under contract through the 2024 season and is set to earn a $22.3 million salary and $32.3 million salary cap hit in the final year of the four-year, $134 million contract he signed with the Los Angeles Rams.

One year out is typically when top-notch players get extensions, and Goff has proven to be just that for Detroit. Despite all the fan and media consternation about his status, Goff has been pretty quiet about any extension talks. Unconfirmed reports and speculation peg any extension in the $45-50 million per year range for Goff, who is still just 29 years old.

Goff typically eschews talking about his contract, but he did acknowledge there have been talks with the Lions about a potential contract extension. He met with the media during the team’s voluntary workouts this week.

“There have been discussions. But I’ll leave it at that,” Goff told reporters on Tuesday.

Goff also added this about playing in Detroit, dispelling any notion that he would want to leave the Lions,

“It’s been amazing, man. I love it here and I would love to be here for a long time. Really special, like I said, to play in front of these fans. Being able to provide a winning culture in the last year-and-a-half or so and see them experience that and be a part of that has been fun. By no means are we satisfied, or happy to be here or any of that. It’s about what’s next.”
