Jared Goff is getting needed security in a new deal that includes a no-trade clause

Jared Goff is getting needed security in a new deal that includes a no-trade clause

allen park — Money was never a question or concern for quarterback Jared Goff in his contract negotiations with the Lions.

To be sure, there has been some outside discussion about whether the extension will average more or less $50 million. But after Goff’s individual production and team success the past two seasons, he was always destined to become one of the highest-paid players in the league once again.

What mattered most to Gove was security. Not just financially, but being able to confidently put down roots in Detroit, a city that has grown to embrace the California native as one of its own. That’s why he was keen to secure a no-trade clause as part of the deal, which is designed to keep him with the Lions through the 2027 season, at the very least.
