The Detroit Lions have struck another mega deal this offseason, as they have agreed to terms with quarterback Jared Goff on a four-year, $212 million extension that includes $170 million guaranteed, CBS Sports lead NFL insider Jonathan Jones confirms. Goff’s new AAV of $53 million makes him the second highest-paid quarterback in the league behind Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Goff is coming off a career year in which he completed 67.3% of his passes for 4,575 yards, 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. In 2023, the Lions won their first division title since 1993 and their first playoff game since 1991. Detroit tied a franchise record for wins with 12 and set a record for most 30-point games with nine. In the playoffs, Goff became the first quarterback in NFL history to snap decade-long playoff win droughts for two different teams.

This is a developing story.
