The Lions continue to pay their stars and Jared Goff is the latest to earn a massive extension. Do you approve of the terms?

The Detroit Lions made Jared Goff the second-highest paid quarterback in the NFL on Monday, signing him to a four-year extension worth $212 million and $170 million guaranteed. He is also the highest paid Lion ever, with the number coming in at $53 million AAV.

Goff is the third Lion to receive a massive extension this offseason, though the Lions didn’t make him the highest paid at his position like they did with Amon-Ra St. Brown and Penei Sewell.

The move was an expected one, as Goff is coming off of a tremendous 2023 season and the front office has been very complimentary of his performance and his growth as a Lion. That brings us to today’s Question of the Day…

Do you approve of the Jared Goff extension?

My answer: Absolutely.

While the contract is maybe a tad higher than I expected, that’s just the price of doing business when you’re a good football team. You have to pay your good players, and in this case, Goff was holding a lot of the leverage and kudos for him for securing the bag. He deserves it.

Let’s hear from you. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
