Goff not concerned about potential contract extension as 2019 training camp begins 

Jared Goff not concerned about potential contract extension as 2019 training camp begins

Carson Wentz got his from the Eagles. The latest reporting has Dak Prescott likely getting his from the Cowboys at some point during training camp.

So what about Rams quarterback Jared Goff and a contract extension? If it seems inevitable, that’s because it probably is. But at the same time, Goff hasn’t missed a start due to injury since taking over as Los Angeles’ starter midway through the 2016 season. And because he was a first-round pick — unlike Prescott — he’s not heading into the final year on his contract.

That decreases the sense of urgency to get something done right now. And regardless, there is still that sense of inevitability.

Asked if there’s been any movement toward a potential extension since the end of the offseason program, Goff said simply, “Nothing’s changed. Just the same spot.”

And how does he feel about it?

“Time will take care of it. Just go out and play.”

Those simple four sentences encapsulate Goff and the way he approaches each day. Sean McVay often says that Goff’s even-keel demeanor is a good foil for the head coach’s excitability.

But when it comes to this season, Goff — who will turn 25 in October — will likely be counted on more than he has in the past. He’s entering his fourth season, which is often when quarterbacks solidify themselves as high-quality starters. And he’s going to be playing behind a line with two new starters.

“I feel like I’m getting old. Fourth year – it seems like it’s flown by,” Goff joked on Wednesday. “But yeah, excited for it. Excited to get back with a similar group of guys and get back to work.”

Goff mentioned it and despite the new OL starters it’s true — the Rams will return nine of 11 starters on offense from last year, plus a few key role players. Of the players expected to contribute early on in the season at running back, wide receiver, and tight end, only RB Darrell Henderson was not on the roster in 2018.

“It’s huge, especially with myself and the receivers, running backs and tight ends,” Goff said of the continuity. "Just having that continued chemistry and everything we’ve been working on, not only in the last couple of years, but this offseason off the field, just getting together as much as possible and feeling good. When you can have that similar group coming back, it’s good.”

When last season ended, Goff was one of many Rams who said part of the difficulty in processing it was that there wasn’t a chance to get back on the field and immediately make corrections. Now with the beginning of camp, that’s going to change. And Goff is ready to begin that process, taking everything day by day as the club has done so well under McVay.

“Yeah, it’s good....
 

Jared Goff: Cooper Kupp 'looks really, really good' this offseason 

Jared Goff: Cooper Kupp 'looks really, really good' this offseason
By: Cameron DaSilva | 3 hours ago

Cooper Kupp has had a big impact on the Rams offense since being drafted in 2017. Unfortunately, he was limited to only eight games last season due to a torn ACL. He’s well on his way back to being 100 percent and is expected to be fully ready for the start of the season – great news for Jared Goff and the offense as a whole.

Kupp participated in OTAs and minicamp this spring, though in a limited capacity. He’s been cleared for training camp and won’t begin on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, which is great news.

Goff threw with Kupp while the Rams were on summer break between OTAs and training camp and says the third-year wideout looks strong.

“Very excited,” Goff said this week of Kupp’s return. “I think Sean (McVay) can talk further on where he’s at physically, but to me he looks really, really good. I’ve thrown with him a few times in the last month and looks strong, looks fast, looks physical. I know he’s ready to go, ready to start fresh and get this thing going.”

Kupp said he “threw quite a bit” with his receivers this summer, hoping to build greater chemistry in advance of the upcoming season. Having Kupp back will be a huge benefit for him, given how often he relied on the Eastern Washington product in the slot.

If Kupp is 100 percent for the start of the season as he’s expected to be, Goff will be a happy camper.
 

Rams extend McVay & Snead through 2023

Not entirely surprising moves given the current success of the franchise, but certainly welcome news!...
