Jared Goff is an American football quarterback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at California, where he was a first-team All-Pac-12, and was selected first overall by the Los Angeles Rams in the 2016 NFL Draft.
After an unsuccessful rookie season, Goff rebounded in his sophomore year when he helped lead the Rams to their first winning season in 14 years and their first playoff appearance in 13 years. Goff oversaw further improved fortunes for the Rams in 2018, which saw the team reach Super Bowl LIII, the franchise’s first Super Bowl appearance since 2001. He also received Pro Bowl honors in both seasons. Amid a production dip during his next two years, Goff was traded to the Lions ahead of the 2021 season.
