Rams agree to extension with Goff
Quarterback Jared Goff has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Rams through the 2024 season.
The Rams confirmed the agreement Tuesday night. The team didn't disclose contract terms.
Goff is beginning his fourth year with the Rams, who made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft. After a rocky rookie season, Goff has become a two-time Pro Bowl selection under coach Sean McVay over the past two years.
Goff has passed for 8,492 yards with 60 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in 31 regular-season games as McVay's starter. He also led the Rams to two playoff victories before the Super Bowl, where he struggled in a 19-for-38 performance for 229 yards in the Rams' 13-3 loss to the Patriots.
Elliott ‘close’ to deal: Ezekiel Elliott is back in Texas and ready to play football.
The Cowboys running back arrived at DFW Airport from Mexico on Tuesday afternoon with reports swirling that he and the team are close to agreeing on a multi-year contract.
Elliott's agent Rocky Arceneaux, who was traveling with him, said a deal is “close.”
Elliott was asked is he expects to play on Sunday when the Cowboys open the season against the Giants at AT&T Stadium.
“If I have a deal,” he said.
Later, between signing autographs and posing for selfies with fans, Elliott was asked if he was ready to play.
“I've been ready,” he said. He ignored repeated requests to respond to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' “Zeke who?” quip from three weeks ago.
Earlier in the day, the Cowboys agreed with right tackle La'el Collins on a new contract, the second extension to get settled during Elliott's holdout. The deal is for $50 million over five years with $35 million guaranteed.
