Rams Beat: QB Jared Goff not likely going anywhere

Trading Jared Goff would trigger a cap charge of $22.2 million for the Rams in 2021, although that’s far lower than his $34.625 million cap number for next year.

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?

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
