Quarterback Jared Goff is very happy to get a fresh start with the Detroit Lions.
“I’m just excited to be somewhere where I know I am wanted and appreciated,” he said Sunday in an interview with the NFL Network.
The comments come the day after the exchange that took him from the Los Angeles Rams to the Michigan squad. In addition to Goff, the Lions got two first-round picks and a third-round pick in return from quarterback Matthew Stafford.
After the Rams’ loss in the second round of the playoffs, head coach Sean McVay and general manager Les Snead refused to identify Goff as their starter for the 2021 season, only two years after the pivot took part. at the Super Bowl with the California team.
A person working for the Rams had even told the NFL Network that Goff and McVay did not have a good relationship and that they would need “couple therapy”.
In 15 games in 2020, the 26-year-old pivot completed 67% of the passes he attempted for 3,952 yards and 20 touchdowns.
In career, the first-ever pick in the 2016 NHL Draft maintained a 42-27 record. After his family lost to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, Goff signed a massive four-year contract worth $ 134 million.
