The coronavirus pandemic brought everyday life to a screeching halt this past March as millions of people were forced to stay home to try and curve the spread of the deadly virus.
Great for some people, but not for many who began to engage in activities that likely wouldn’t have if they weren’t stuck inside. That seems to include Jared Goff as well.
The Los Angeles Rams quarterback hasn’t just been lounging on the couch all spring and summer, but even he admitted he gained a little bit of weight during the pandemic – either muscle or from the burgers he ate.
“I may have put on a couple of pounds. I don’t know if that’s muscle or a couple of cheeseburgers, I’m not sure,” he joked on a conference call Monday. “But I feel good. … I feel good putting in a lot of work this offseason. I had a lot of time.
I had a lot of time to really reflect and figure out what you want to get better at and really focus on what you want to get better at. We had the whole offseason. So, hopefully we come out this year and put the right foot forward.”
Goff is coming off a bad year with the Rams, where he finished 2019 with 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions, a season removed from reaching Super Bowl LIII.
Goff is ready to “put the right foot forward.”
“We had the whole offseason. So, hopefully we come out this year and put the right foot forward,” Goff said.
