The bigger challenge when trading him comes to finding his next destination. Goff has a fully-guaranteed 2021 salary in the amount of $25.325 million, a fully-guaranteed 2021 roster bonus of $2.5 million, and a fully-guaranteed 2022 roster bonus of $15.5 million. Which other team would take on that kind of financial commitment, especially when the guarantees contain no offset language?
Still, the struggles of Goff and Carson Wentz highlight the question of whether teams who find competent quarterbacks at the top of the draft should blindly extend them with big-money second contracts, the story. The story also pointed out the Bucs and Titans surely don’t regret passing on paying Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota; the Rams and Eagles surely regret giving out those massive second contracts.
