Despite being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is still playing under his rookie contract.
This comes at a time when Philadelphia Eagles signal caller Carson Wentz earned a record-breaking deal. Wentz was selected one pick after Goff in the draft.
In talking about his fellow classmate and the contract Wentz inked, Goff noted that he’s certainly thinking about it.
“YOU DEFINITELY THINK ABOUT IT,” GOFF SAID, VIA GARY KLEIN OF THE LOS ANGELES TIMES. “BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I KNOW NONE OF THAT IS EVEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT PLAYING WELL ON THE FIELD, AND BEING AVAILABLE ON THE FIELD.”
The Rams had previously noted that a Goff extension is not in the cards this offseason. Whether that’s changed now that Wentz reset the young quarterback market remains to be seen.
