Recent Rams rumors are that Jared Goff might be open to restructuring his contract to help the team and their poor salary cap situation.

As we get closer to the start of the 2020 NFL Draft, there are a lot of Rams rumors about what the plans might be for that.

Recently, we have seen the Rams shake up their roster. Todd Gurley was cut and eventually signed by the Atlanta Falcons. Not too long ago, Brandin Cooks was just traded to the Houston Texans, as key members from the 2018 NFC Championship team are now gone.

When the Rams moved to Los Angeles, they went all-in with what they had. The team became pretty top-heavy with a lot of stars making a lot of money. However, with a rookie quarterback in Jared Goff, that is always a good time to do something like that, as he wasn’t making a lot of money yet.

However, Goff’s strong play resulted in him getting a lengthy and expensive extension. Goff became one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league, as the hope was that he would only continue to get better.

Unfortunately, the 2019 season was not a good one for Goff. There was a noticeable regression on the field, and he was one of the reasons why the Rams struggled.

After the down season, Goff appears to be open to restructuring his deal to help the team.

With the Rams struggling with their cap situation, restructuring Goff’s deal could help the team. Despite cutting Gurley and trading Cooks, the Rams have a lot of dead cap space because of those moves. If Goff does restructure, he could help the Rams quite a bit.

This is a good gesture by Goff, who after a down season, seems to want what is best for the team. With the fifth-highest total quarterback contract in the league, Goff isn’t a Top-5 quarterback as of now.

After a down 2019 season, the Rams need some help to regain their form from 2018. Goff restructuring his contract could go a long way toward helping achieve that.
