THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Rams have locked down Jared Goff through the 2020 season, and they intend to keep their franchise quarterback around for a whole lot longer.
The Rams exercised Goff's $22.783 million, fifth-year contract option Tuesday. General manager Les Snead and coach Sean McVay also affirmed the NFC champions' intention to sign their young offensive leader to a long-term deal eventually.
"We just want to make sure there's clarity on how great we feel about him leading our team for many years to come," McVay said. "He's only getting better and better, and as he continues to accumulate experience, we feel so good about our quarterback position with him leading the way."
