It looks like trade rumors surrounding two NFL quarterbacks are coming to fruition.
The Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Rams both were rumored to be shopping their quarterbacks in pursuit of a trade this offseason. And it looks like the two teams ultimately will be swapping signal-callers.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero on Saturday reported that the Lions are “closing in” on a blockbuster trade that will send former Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford to Los Angeles. The Lions’ return will be headlined by former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff.
And according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Rams also will be sending two future first-round draft picks along with a third-rounder to Detroit.
Goff will remain under contract for four seasons, through 2024. He agreed to a four-year, $134 million extension with Los Angeles, which was set to begin this season.
