Another quarterback extension is coming, and it is one Bears fans should keep an eye on:
The #Rams and QB Jared Goff agreed to terms on a 4-year deal worth $134M, source said. He gets $110M guaranteed, a record.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports the Rams have signed Jared Goff to a four-year extension worth $134 million and includes a record $110 million in guarantees. The deal keeps the 2016 first overall pick with the team that drafted him for the foreseeable future.
We’ll dive into this deal more as details come out, because there is some stuff that’s worth chewing on. But as is always the case when deals like this one get done, our mind immediately goes to what this could mean for Mitch Trubisky moving forward. Trubisky is a year away from being in the same situation Goff is in now, and that the two have worked out together and share an agent is worth keeping in mind for future reference.
If Trubisky follows Goff path, which would including making another Pro Bowl and going deep into the playoffs, the Bears will be in the same place where the Rams were entering this summer. Remember the parallels we drew between the teams last year? It would be fun to revisit them down the road. But because we’re far enough away from getting to that point, we can save that conversation for another time.
