He will make an average of $53 million. Goff is now the second-highest-paid quarterback in the NFL, trailing only Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who is making, on average, $55 million. 

This is the third major deal the Lions have announced this off-season. The team also re-signed young stars Amon-Ra. St. Brown and Penei Sewell. 

St. Brown received a four-year, $120.1 million deal. Sewell agreed to a four-year, $112 million deal. 

The 29-year-old was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He was acquired in a blockbuster deal in March 2021 that sent Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams. 

In his breakthrough season, Goff appeared in 17 games. He guided the Lions to a 12-5 regular season record. 

Goff went 407 of 605 for 4,575 yards. He had 30 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions.

The Lions advanced to the NFC Conference Championship game before losing to the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers were defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. 

The 4,575 passing yards were the most by Goff in a season since 2019 when he had 4,638 yards with the Rams. 

This extension with Goff will kick in following the end of the 2024 season. According to Spotrac, his cap hit will be $32.6 million in 2025. It’ll increase to $69.6 million for the 2026 season. 

However, in 2027, Goff’s cap hit will fall to $54.6 million. His final season in 2028 will be $61.6 million.
