The Los Angeles Rams have restructured Jared Goff’s contract.

According to Adam Schefter, the team’s restructuring of their starting quarterback’s deal opened up $7 million in cap space. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Given how bad Goff’s deal looks in hindsight, it makes sense for the Rams to try to do something to free up money.

They handed the young quarterback more than $110 million guaranteed, and then the Rams just fell off a cliff last season.

They’re not in a great financial situation and they need to load the roster back up. While details on the restructuring aren’t known, I’m guessing Goff is still more or less getting the same amount of money.

They probably just shifted more of the guaranteed money into bonuses and out of his base salary. All I know is the Rams have to find a way to improve.

They went from being in the Super Bowl to not even really being competitive. You simply can’t do that as an NFL team.

We’ll see how the Rams are in 2020, but they need to make some major moves if Sean McVay wants his squad to return to where they were a couple years ago.
