The first-round picks included in the deal are in 2022 and 2023. https://t.co/2bLqNjm390— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) January 31, 2021
Essentially, the Rams have used four first-round picks, two second-round picks, and two third-round picks to get Matthew Stafford. Think he can be great in that system, but anything short of a Super Bowl with Stafford playing a starring role is a disappointment here— Bill Barnwell (@billbarnwell) January 31, 2021
Extensions given out by the #Rams that just completely backfired:— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) January 31, 2021
Jared Goff: 4 yrs, $134M
Todd Gurley: 4 yrs, $60M
Brandin Cooks: 5 yrs, $80M
Getting rid of all 3 resulted in massive cap hits, but they're not scared of that. So many teams hold onto mistakes. The #Rams don't.
Goff is expected to be the starter this year, as one would figure, but nothing's off the table moving forward at QB in terms of the draft or whatever else might be available.— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurkeNFL) January 31, 2021

More details trickling in...— Peter Schrager (@PSchrags) January 31, 2021
Stafford wanted to play for McVay and be in LA. Lions did him right in the end. There were other offers. Very good ones, too.
Detroit and Rams front offices both knew that this was the trade that made all parties happiest— teams, player, coach.
I don’t think the Rams are gonna think twice about those picks.— Lindsay Rhodes (@lindsay_rhodes) January 31, 2021
Stafford is the missing piece for them.
He can get them where they want to go.
Can’t waste Aaron Donald’s prime playing it safe.
As a big Matthew Stafford guy who has never quite gotten why people don't like him more -- it makes perfect sense to me that the Rams think Stafford is "two firsts and a third" better than Jared Goff.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 31, 2021
2020— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 31, 2021
Jared Goff: 3,952 yards, 67% completion, 20 TDs, 13 INTs
Matt Stafford: 4084, 63% completion, 26 TDs, 10 INTs
Rams also carrying $22.2 million in dead cap for Jared Goff (as @AndrewBrandt pointed out) and $8.4 million for Todd Gurley. Which brings the number here over $140 million.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 31, 2021
Like I said, continuing to hit on picks will be key to getting around this https://t.co/vzMzrEyns7
What is abundantly clear with the reported terms of this deal:— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) January 31, 2021
The Rams paid the Lions to take Jared Goff.
Anyone who believes the cap is prohibitive needs to look at the history. If you want to do a deal, deals can get done.— Steve Wyche (@wyche89) January 31, 2021
Lions essentially taking a $43 million cap hit for a first-round pick in 2023. Not sure how to score that one.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) January 31, 2021
Feel for some Rams veterans who are going to get cut because of Goff’s dead money on the Cap.— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) January 31, 2021
Also underlines the sheer value of true franchise quarterbacks- which again, don't grow on trees. https://t.co/MciEokSfFs— IG: JosinaAnderson (@JosinaAnderson) January 31, 2021
Agreed. Add two years, void or not, go heavy on the signing bonus to prorate cap dollars, and lean on expected cap spikes from TV deals and a return to normalcy.— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) January 31, 2021
I'd expect a lot of those types of transactions this offseason. https://t.co/0MKlQhb8zK
Matt Stafford rank in passing DYAR the last five years: 9, 10, 20, 9, and 14. He was 4th in DVOA in 2019, though, but in only 300 passes. Now gets McVay's offense.— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) January 31, 2021
Jared Goff in passing DYAR the last five years: 34, 6, 6, 15, 20. Taken a big step backwards the last two seasons.
Feel for Jared Goff. One minute you’re young, rich, good looking, with a smart coach and a cool stadium on a good team in a great city, the world in the palm of your hands. The next, you’re off to Detroit.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) January 31, 2021

In all, the Rams spent two 1s, two 2s and two 3s to trade up to draft Jared Goff and another two 1s and a 3 to replace him after 5 seasons.— Kyle Crabbs (@GrindingTheTape) January 31, 2021
We've seen Jared Goff with Sean McVay in his headset.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 31, 2021
We're about to see him without McVay helping him.
Now that Stafford is paired with McVay we won't have to worry about having the "What if?" conversation with him anymore, right? This should be a place where we can all see just how high of a ceiling he has.— Brandon Thorn (@BrandonThornNFL) January 31, 2021
Twenty-two quarterbacks were drafted in the first round between 2009 and 2016. One remains with the team that drafted him: Carson Wentz.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 31, 2021
(Only four first-round QBs from '16 or before remain with the teams that picked them: Wentz, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan and Ben Roethlisberger.)
I don’t know where Washington goes from here.— Eat Sleep WFT (@WFTTalk) January 31, 2021
Outside of Watson, QB market is ... sad.
Another year of mediocre QB play?
I'm seeing a lot of people saying "Washington should not have traded that much." They wouldn't have had to.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 31, 2021
The Rams were paying for Stafford and also for the Lions to take Goff off their hands. They accomplished two things with that deal.
Please stop connecting the Cam to DC dots. Not happening, they want a QB here that can pass— I’m Dre (@MrDcSportsBack) January 31, 2021
Those are the only options?— Scott Jennings (@ScottJenningsHH) January 31, 2021
1) Rams got older, but potentially better.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) January 31, 2021
2) Rams are willing to take radical risks to win.
3) Two 1’s is a lot, but if Rams get back to the Divsional round, those picks are between 25-32.
4) Lions got a haul for a QB who turns 33 next week, but take on $43 mil guaranteed.
7) Can’t wait to see what McVay and Stafford do together.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) January 31, 2021
8) You’re up, Texans.
The amount of draft capitol it will take to acquire DeShaun Watson..... pic.twitter.com/CpvlwAHtlU— Steve Wyche (@wyche89) January 31, 2021
