Russell Wilson’s potential extension and why it’s important for the Rams and Jared Goff
With the no really big headlines, the mainstream media seems intent on digging into the QB market and what Russell Wilson’s potential extension means for any QB nearing the end of their contract.
The most telling bit of information in either of those articles:
The Rams could go year to year with Goff, who would make about $60 million or so over the next three campaigns. The Gurley extension suggests they aren’t worried about paying market value to a player if they think he’s a star, even if it means giving away their leverage in the process.
No big surprises here. The Rams still need to replace OL Rodger Saffold as well as NT Ndamukong Suh and the pass rush will still need augmented as it has absolutely no long term solutions.
