    Rams sign Jared Goff to a reported four-year, $134 million extension, guaranteed money

    https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/r...ails-revealed/

    Just between Aaron Donald, Todd Gurley and others and now with them signing Goff to a record extension. Why is it or how is it that they are able to do that?

      There is supposed to be a "hard salary cap." Not sure if you knew about that.

      Since 1994.

        Que up the narrative "THEY WONT BE ABLE TO SIGN ANYONE!"

        On a side note Mahomes is a happy camper seeing this.

          No ****! Ironically jerry Jones who led the charge for a hard cap, is giving Zeke a 100M contract, Dak is going to get his 100+M contract, gave D. Lawrence 105M contract. Zach Martin 80M contract. The next couple years there’s nothing to worry about but beyond that they’ll lose some talent cause of the salary cap.

            Here are differences between us and them, cap-wise

            1) much less dead money- 4m vs 22m

            2) only one player with a cap hit over 20m- Jared Goff. Compared to us, we have one "true" 20m+ cap hit with Miller, but with releasing Keenum and taking on Flacco's deal our QB1 spot takes up well over 20m as well.

            3) 8 players with cap hits over 9m- all young and/or talented. We only have 6- Miller, Flacco, Sanders, Harris Jr, Wolfe, and Leary, but you could argue only two of our players deserve to be as highly paid as they are. Compare to their 9m+ list- Goff, Donald, Whitworth, Cooks, Fowler, Brockers, Gurley, Peters.

            4) We are paying average guys like Flacco, Wolfe, Leary, and Todd Davis 18(25)/10/9/5m. For nearly the same combined cap hit the have Donald, Talib, Peters, and Gurley.

            5) Our QB room has a cap hit of 28.3m this year, combining dead money and rostered QBs. The Rams have a more expensive room at 34.5m, but those numbers are far too close for the huge talent gap between the two.




            The modern cap allows room for 3-5 mid to top tier defensive players, 3-5 mid to top tier offensive players, a franchise QB, and then depth pieces.

            The Rams filled those spots with Donald, Fowler, Brockers, Peters, and Talib for D. Whitworth, Cooks, Gurley, Havenstein, and Woods on O. Then gave Goff franchise QB money.

            Broncos have the spots taken up by Miller, Harris, Wolfe, Chubb, Jackson on D. Sanders, Leary, James, Heuerman, and Bolles on O. Flacco also has franchise QB money coming from the team's pocket.

              Ridic how much money teams are forced to pay mediocre QB's for fear of not being able to find a better one.

                  Including Denver for what they are paying QBs this year.

                      Yeah. But at least the Broncos' isn't a long term commitment.

                        Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson deals are already a bargain. Seems like signing earlier is better when dealing with a QB - you're going to set the market anyways, just go ahead and do it before you have to top another QB, again.

                          Earlier is better for all positions. Had they signed Harris before it wouldn’t cost as much now.

                            It will be interesting to see the numbers once they are posted. He has small hits this year and next I know. I wish Denver was better at signing guys earlier vs waiting.

                              That's true, and possible we would have been able to keep Malik under that.
