Rams GM Les Snead avoids committing to Jared Goff, instead quotes Aaron Rodgers: ‘the future is a beautiful mystery’

What a day for the Rams and their franchise quarterback

The Los Angeles Rams are just messing with Jared Goff at this point.

On Tuesday, Rams general manager Les Snead spoke to local media members and, of course, Goff’s status with the franchise was a burning topic of conversation.

Just like coach Sean McVay last week, Snead was lukewarm in his commitment to Goff, the team’s highly-paid quarterback.

Yes, this should go over well with Goff.

Further stoking the fire, Snead not, once, but twice, quoted Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers from his obscure press conference last week when he said the future is a “beautiful mystery.”

The Rodgers’ quote is major shade on Snead’s part. Rodgers is already being connected to the Rams and Snead had to know that.

There is a long way to go for the Rams to make any move at quarterback, but Tuesday’s developments certainly crack the door a little more open.
