Contracts are climbing in the NFL and Jared Goff is the latest benefactor. The quarterback recently signed a four-year, $212 million contract extension with the Detroit Lions. It will pay him $170 million guaranteed, including a whopping $73 million signing bonus.

Goff’s achievements haven’t gone unnoticed by top betting sites like BetMGM. For those interested in checking out the odds on the Lions for the upcoming season, this review of the BetMGM app at Overtime Heroics provides information on features and ratings - perfect for making informed betting decisions. Goff will no doubt be featured in Offensive Player of the Year and NFL MVP odds.

For Goff and the Lions, the pact is critical. The Lions are coming from one of their best seasons ever and Goff had one of his best. Solidifying the future means that both sides can focus on the only goal, which is a Super Bowl.

Goff’s Impact and Salary

Goff’s value can be seen in just the last season. The quarterback was outstanding, completing a career-best 67.3% of his passes for 4,575 yards and 30 touchdowns. He was vital to the success of the team during the regular season.

Most important, however, is their playoff run. He helped lead the team to their first playoff win since 1991 and the NFC Championship Game. If not for a disappointing second half, the Lions may have won that game and made their first-ever Super Bowl. That is the goal going forward and the Lions know they have their man at quarterback.

Huge Roster Improvement

While anyone can look at Jared Goff's career stats and see the kind of impact he has on the field, the Lions have done a tremendous job of getting better across the board.

Receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and offensive tackle Penei Sewell (both of whom got extensions as well) have become among the best at their position. Tight end T.J. Hockenson is already a major weapon for Goff to use. That’s not even mentioning second-overall pick Aiden Hutchinson and the impact he has had.

Prior to getting the Jared Goff contract done, Lions General Manager Brad Holmes commented about the contract status of not only Goff but other key pillars like Sewell and St. Brown. Rather than Jared Goff's stats, Holmes commented about what he means to the team.

Holmes said that Goff “earned” an extension. “It’s a high priority for us and both sides are working really, really hard. These things just take time, you know.” Thankfully for both, the Jared Goff contract status has now been resolved, and he’s in Detroit for the foreseeable future.

Going into the 2024 NFL season, the ceiling is high for Jared Goff. The Jared Goff Lions feel like no other incarnation of the franchise seen previously. There is talent-laden throughout the roster, and the team has to feel like a Super Bowl is just a matter of time.
