Lions QB Jared Goff: ‘More fired up than ever’

Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff made his goals clear on Thursday, the day the team announced his signing to a contract extension through the 2028 season.”I’m more driven and more fired up than ever to go even harder and put the pedal to the metal even more to bring a Super Bowl to the city and that’s what’s most important,” Goff said.The team didn’t disclose financial terms, but multiple outlets reported the four-year extension was for $212 million with $170 million guaranteed.Goff, acquired in the 2021 trade that sent veteran QB Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams, is entering his fourth season as the starter in Detroit. In 48 regular season games with the Lions, he has completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 12,258 yards with 78 touchdowns and 27 interceptions — resulting in a 96.5 passer rating.Among NFL QBs last season, he was first in passing first downs (227), second in passing yards (4,575), second in 20-yard completions (69) and tied for third in 300-yard games (five).
