Los Angeles Rams secured a major coup by trading for Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Florida-born player is a proven talent in the NFL over the last decade or so. But the same can’t be said for Jared Goff.

The 2016 1st overall pick threw for 3,952 yards with 20 passing TDs against 13 interceptions in 2020. He was traded to the Lions in exchange for Goff along with two 1st-round picks, and a 3rd-round pick.

In 2019, Goff agreed to a 4-year extension worth $134 million featuring $110 million in guarantees. Despite popular opinion, the Rams claim that they don’t regret the deal.

No regrets with respect to the Jared Goff contract deal ahead of Lions move

In a recent interview, Los Angeles Ram COO Kevin Demoff spoke about the situation surrounding former quarterback Jared Goff. When asked if the Rams regret offering Goff a long-term extension just 2 years ago, Demoff had an immediate response.

“Every time a player doesn’t finish the deal that they signed, you probably wish they had. Regrets? No. Jared has been a great piece to our franchise.

“You can’t be caught up in decisions you’ve made in the past, because things change,” Demoff said via the Los Angeles Times.

During his 5-year stay in Los Angeles, Goff threw for 18,171 yards with 107 passing TDs, leading the Rams to the Super Bowl in 2018. He also made the Pro Bowl team on two occasions. But he apparently had a fallout with HC Sean McVay last year which brought his time in the city of angels to an end.

Moving to Michigan, Goff will be part of a rebuild project in Detroit under new Head Coach Dan Campbell. Meanwhile, Stafford will automatically transform the Rams into outside favorites to make the Super Bowl in 2021.

With Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey dominating in the defensive department, Matthew could just be the player to lead the Los Angeles-based franchise to the promised land after all.
