Jared Thomas Goff[1] (born October 14, 1994) is an American football quarterback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a first-team All-Pac-12, and was selected first overall by the Los Angeles Rams in the 2016 NFL Draft.

In his sophomore NFL year, Goff lead the Rams to their first winning season in 14 years and their first playoff appearance in 13 years. Goff oversaw further improved fortunes for the Rams in 2018, which saw the team earn a trip to Super Bowl LIII, the franchise's first Super Bowl appearance since 2001. He also received Pro Bowl honors in both seasons. Goff's production dipped during his next two seasons, after which he was traded to the Lions in 2021 for quarterback Matthew Stafford.[2]
