After all, Jared Goff is not viewed as a bridge quarterback by the Detroit Lions. Numerous reports claim that the Lions and Goff have reached a long-term extension agreement.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network claims that Goff signed a $212 million, four-year contract with a guaranteed $170 million. With an annual contract of $53 million, Goff is currently the most paid athlete in franchise history. He is currently the quarterback with the highest compensation. At $55 million, only Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals earns more.

In 2021, Goff became a member of the Lions when Matthew Stafford was traded to the Los Angeles Rams. At first, it was thought Detroit would select a new franchise quarterback in the draft and use Goff as a stopgap quarterback.

But even if the Lions had those ideas, Goff’s outstanding play forced them to rethink them. In his first season with the team, he was selected to the Pro Bowl, and in 2023, he had even greater success.
Goff threw for 4,575 yards and 30 touchdowns in the previous season, finishing with a career-high 67.3% pass completion percentage. With a 12-5 record, the Lions advanced to the NFC Championship Game after winning the NFC North.

The Detroit Lions used this offseason to lock its top players on long-term contracts. Prior to signing Goff to an extension, the organization also locked star wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and All-Pro offensive tackle Penei Sewell to new agreements as well.
