Jared Goff Is Willing To Restructure His $134 Million Contract


Jared Goff's mega $134 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Rams doesn't kick in for another year, but the deal already looks like a bit of a mistake from the front office.

After guiding the Rams to a Super Bowl LIII appearance last season, Goff was awarded with the $134 million deal over four years. But he regressed mightily in 2019, and Los Angeles missed the postseason for the first time in three years.

The difficult salary cap situation forced the Rams to move on from a handful of notable veterans this offseason, including 1,000-yard receiver Brandin Cooks, Pro Bowl running back Todd Gurley, pass rusher Dante Fowler Jr. and do-it-all linebacker Cory Littleton.

So yes, the Rams could use some help on Goff's end in order to free up cap space, especially with Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey in need of a long-term contract soon.

The good news for the Rams is that Goff expressed a willingness to restructure his contract during a conference call, per Adam Maya of

"I think that's a better question for Kevin (Demoff) and my agent," Goff said. "I think there's been some stuff about being able to clear some cap space. And if so, I'm all for it. I don't see why not. It doesn't change anything for me and helps the team out."

Rams general manager Les Snead was extremely aggressive in the 2018 and 2019 offseasons, mortgaging a plethora of draft picks (including his first-rounders every year from 2017 to 2021) to build a team that's ready to win now.

It paid off in 2018 with a trip to the Super Bowl, and the Rams have recorded three straight winning seasons. Under the new playoff format (14 teams will now qualify), Los Angeles would have snagged the final wild card berth in 2019 with a 9-7 record.

But now, Snead and the Rams will have to work around a tight salary cap situation while trying to reach a new deal with Ramsey.

Goff's cap hit will come in at just over $36.042 in 2020, according to It'll then move down to $32.5 million in 2021, to $30.5 million in 2022 and $30 million in 2023. So a contract restructure would go a long way to helping Snead rebuild a team that was oh-so-close to winning it all a year ago.
