Rams’ Sean McVay: Jared Goff extension ‘will get done’

Sean McVay is sick of hearing it suggested he is a magician who can succeed at any quarterback, so the Los Angeles Rams don’t have to cover Jared Goff a Carson Wentz-type of bargain.
The Michael Silver of NFL Network was advised by the trainer on Thursday he’s fed up with the proposal that the Rams are not dedicated to Goff long-term.
“Whether it ends up occurring this season or next year, there is a zero percent chance this guy’s not gonna find an extension he’s worthy of,” McVay said. “All the narratives out there are wrong. Jared and I couldn’t be connected, and that I couldn’t be more appreciative of him. He is important and vital to our success and us. That extension will get done. It is a matter of when, not if.”

Phew. That is about a rebuke of a media-driven story a coach gets.
The lecture follows speculation that the Rams might be reluctant to lock down Goff since McVay is the puppet-master who is the sole reason behind the quarterback’s success, and therefore L.A. may balk at paying him $30-plus-million per season on a new bargain, especially after his struggles from the Super Bowl.
At the minimum, the concept that McVay may take any quarterback, like, Blake Bortles, for instance, and spin gold magic belies the reality of the relationship a coach and quarterback build over time and how much that plays to the achievement and annual improvement.
For his role, Goff isn’t fretting about his second deal with the Rams, knowing his payday is on the horizon as long as he remains healthy and continues his annual improvement under McVay.
Goff is on the Rams’ novels for the next two seasons of his rookie contract, at salary of $4.26 million and $22.783 million, respectively, subsequently L.A. owns the capability to overthrow the franchise tag for another two seasons. Theoretically, the Rams could employ Goff for another four seasons (at escalating salaries) without giving him a long-term thing.
L.A. notoriously took a very long time to pay Aaron Donald before making him the highest-paid defender in the NFL (temporarily ). Even when the front office takes a similar approach to Goff’s contract, McVay insists he’s found his long-term quarterback.
