Rams trade Jared Goff, picks, to Lions for Matthew Stafford

The Los Angeles Rams will trade quarterback Jared Goff, in addition to two future first-round picks and a future third-round pick, to the Detroit Lions in return for quarterback Matthew Stafford.

What It Means:

The Rams are paying a small fortune to upgrade at the quarterback position and are now without first round picks for the next two seasons, but Goff's pricey contract certainly factored into the final agreement between the Rams and the Lions. The Rams organization clearly believes that Stafford is the final piece necessary to get them back to the Super Bowl, while the Lions will get a young quarterback and plenty of high-value draft picks to assist with their rebuild.

Goff will be walking into a situation full of uncertainty in Detroit. Wide receivers Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr., and Danny Amendola will be entering free agency this offseason, leaving essentially just tight end T.J. Hockenson and 2020 fifth-round pick Quintez Cephus as the team's only returning pass catchers from last season. For a quarterback whose prior success was frequently attributed to his offensive play-caller, the 2021 season is shaping up to be Goff's most difficult season since his disastrous rookie year.
