Lions GM: Jared Goff More Than \'Bridge Option\' At Quarterback 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jun 23, 2021 1:39 pm

Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes believes that Jared Goff could have a future with the franchise.

\"I never viewed him as a bridge option,\" Holmes said of Goff. \"He\'s been a winning quarterback. I think his resume speaks for itself.\"

Detroit acquired Goff in the trade that sent longtime starter Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams.

\"The outside narrative,\" Holmes said, \"has been like, \'Oh, you got the guy for two years to bridge and then that\'s it.\' OK, I can name you some stopgaps. I wouldn\'t say (he is one). ... Before the trade, I remember (Rams GM) Les (Snead) asked me if I wanted Jared and I said, \'Yes, I do want Jared.\' He said, \'OK, I\'m just asking because I\'m getting a lot of calls.\' Within that quarterback circle of teams that needed one, Jared was sought after, just as Carson Wentz was sought after, just as Sam Darnold was sought after.\"
