Dan Campbell Detroit Lions Head Coach Announced that QB Jared Goff is no Longer…….

 

In 2023, Jared Goff repeated his accomplishments as the starting quarterback for the Detroit Lions. Thus, there’s a good chance that Brad Holmes and Detroit’s front staff will sign the seasoned quarterback to a long-term contract this offseason.

At the end of the 2024 season, Goff will be a free agent if the two sides are unable to reach an agreement on a new contract.

Although Goff is without a doubt the team’s starting quarterback going into the upcoming season, there are still doubts over his position on the Lions’ quarterback depth chart.

The only other signal-caller still on Detroit’s active roster is Hendon Hooker, as Teddy Bridgewater, the backup quarterback from the previous season, has chosen to retire.

In order to recover from a ruptured ACL he sustained during his final collegiate season at Tennessee, Hooker, a rookie quarterback in 2023, missed every play of the previous season. Therefore, there’s no assurance that he’ll be prepared to back up Goff in the forthcoming campaign.

Let’s examine the quarterbacks’ contract situations who played for the Lions in 2023 without further ado.

Goff, Jared

The franchise passer has a 2024 cap hit of $32,300,064 and is under contract with the organization through that year.

He still has $5 million in guaranteed money left on his contract; if he is still with the Lions on March 15th, that amount will increase to $10 million.

Teddy Bridgewater

After 2023, the seasoned backup quarterback announced his retirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, he does have a voided year remaining on his contract, which will count $500,000 toward the limit in 2024.

In case you were wondering, an NFL team may apply a player’s prorated signing bonus funds to a future year (a year that does not appear on the player’s contract) in the event of a voided year.
