Lions General Manager Brad Holmes has revealed that the team is engaged in productive discussions with quarterback Jared Goff regarding a possible contract extension.

Since joining the Detroit Lions as part of the high-profile Matthew Stafford-Rams trade, Goff has exceeded expections, amassing an impressive 7,683 passing yards, 48 touchdowns, and a mere 15 interceptions, all while boasting an impressive 66% completion rate over the course of the two seasons.

Brad Holmes said the team has had “good dialogue” in contract talks with Goff, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Goff, a three-time Pro-Bowler, currently carries the 11th-highest salary cap hit among all quarterbacks in 2024.

The quarterback is slated to become a free agent in 2025, affording the Lions ample time to deliberate over their future course of action.

Much of Goff’s contract negotiations may hinge on his performance in the upcoming season. Should he manage to guide the team into the playoffs, he would likely gain substantial leverage in contract talks.

Conversely, if he fails to take the team to the next level, the Lions may find themselves in the hunt for a new, long-term solution at the pivotal quarterback position.

At 28 years of age, Goff remains a promising candidate to serve as the franchise quarterback for the Detroit Lions for years to come.
