The Jared Goff trade
Goff will be leaving the Rams as the team traded him for Stafford from the Lions. News of trade came after Goff the team barely made the playoffs this season and lost in the Divisional playoffs to the Packers. Tension between Goff and coach Sean McVay was apparent during the first playoffs encounter against the Seahawks.
John Wolford was made the starting quarterback for that game after Goff underwent surgery after a thumb injury. However, Wolford suffered an injury during that game and Goff came in to deliver a win to the next stage of the playoffs. Despite his best efforts, Goff was announced to be leaving the Rams.
“Thank you to the entire city of Los Angeles for welcoming a 21-year-old kid with open arms and making this town feel like home,” Goff wrote in a statement posted on Instagram confirmed the trade.
“This city has shaped the man I’ve become and I will forever be grateful for the Kroenke family, my coaches, the support staff, and most importantly, my teammates for competing and fighting with me every Sunday,” Goff continued. “I’ve made memories with every one of you in that locker room that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
