Goff, Stafford dealt in proposed blockbuster deal

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Detroit Lions have found a taker for quarterback Matthew Stafford. However, the deal cannot become official until the new league year on March 17th.

Once that date comes, Stafford will be moved to the Los Angeles Rams. He’ll get to work with head coach Sean McVay.

The Rams were noncommittal on the future of Jared Goff. We now know why they refused to comment on his future, as he has been traded to the Lions.

For the Lions to take on Goff’s bad contract, they also received draft picks. They’ll receive a 2022 first-round draft pick and a 2023 first-round draft pick.

Also, the Lions received a 2021 third-round draft pick. Goff will work with a new regime in Detroit with first-year GM Brad Holmes and first-year head coach Dan Campbell.

McVay was not a fan of Goff. Now, he gets a veteran, who has struggled with the Lions offense.
