The Los Angeles Rams have traded quarterback Jared Goff to the Detroit Lions for quarterback Matt Stafford.

The Rams will also receive a 2021 third-round pick, a 2022 first-round pick, a 2023 first-round pick.

This is a smart move by LA, especially since they’re dumping the remainder of Goff’s $134,000,000 contract signed back in 2019.

Stafford has just two years left on his current contract, so the Rams can choose in a couple of years if he’s worth an extension.

Goff simply didn’t play up to his contract worth, which is why head coach Sean McVay and the organization decided to make a move for Stafford, who was already on his way out of Detroit.

Stafford gets an upgrade behind a better offensive line and slightly better receiver group to throw the ball to.

As for Goff, he’ll be working under a newly hired head coach in Dan Campbell, and it could be a patchy beginning under a new reign in Detroit.
