Jared Goff is going to get a fresh start for a new team in 2021 after the team that drafted him parted ways with him in a mega trade.
His run with the Los Angeles Rams came to an end after the team sent him, two first-round picks and a third round pick to the Detroit Lions for Matthew Stafford.
In the days since that trade, Goff is now speaking about and assessing his thoughts of being traded from the only team he has ever known.
“When you first hear it, it’s difficult, it’s disappointing,” he said. “But you get so excited that you get a fresh start. You get to be somewhere you’re believed in. That clearly wasn’t the case here anymore, and when that happened, I don’t know.”
“It’s disappointing and unfortunate the way it ended, but there were so many great times and so many great wins, so many great memories in practice, the locker room, in meetings. That stuff will last me forever.”
It was just three years ago when Goff helped the team get to the Super Bowl, but his play on the field had fallen off considerably since then.
The former No. 1 overall pick completed a career-high 67-percent of his passes for 3,952 yards and 20 touchdowns with 13 interceptions in 2020.
