efits Wilson immediately Michael Brockers Jersey , it could pay dividends for Goff down the road."The Seattle Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson agreed to a contract extension early this AM:It’s a record deal that makes Wilson the highest-paid player in the NFL.Beyond what it means for Seattle, it reshapes what will be an absolutely massive free agency window for quarterbacks next offseason. This year was pretty light in activity in the sport’s most important position. Next year? Not so much.With Wilson off the board, the list of quarterbacks set to become free agents include Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, New York Giants QB Eli Manning, Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota, and Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott.It also includes Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff and Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz, though they’re both expected to play on a fifth-year option for 2020 and not hit free agency until 2021 when the current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires. Keep an eye out for those options before the May 3 deadline. In any case, that class will go a long way in resetting the market for Goff and Wentz and their prospective deals.The bottom line is that there’s not an environment for each of those quarterbacks to outpace each other contractually. Still, Goff at just 24-years old with a Super Bowl appearance, full health and a season with more than 4,500 passing yards under his belt makes a strong claim to a record-setting contract.The four markers for gauging a new deal for Goff remain the same.Goff’s individual performanceThis aspect grew substantially in 2019 with key performances in which Goff displayed individual brilliance and not just a mastery of the system he operates or a chemistry with the pieces around him. In wins over the Los Angeles Chargers, Minnesota Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs http://www.theramslockerroom.com/authentic-joe-namath-jersey , Goff had moments of pure excellence that were stronger than anything in his previous work. And his play late against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship showed the growth of a young player that was able to summon the requisite performance to win in the postseason.If he somehow has an even better 2019 season, this aspect is going to drive negotiations and drive them over the line Wilson set.The team around himThis was always going to be a bit tougher to pin down because of the distance from now to then (a 2021 and post-2021 environment), but things are getting a bit clearer.The Rams inked RB Todd Gurley, WR Brandin Cooks and RT Rob Havenstein to long-term deals, so we at least know some of Goff’s potential offensive teammates beyond his current deal. And the megadeal for DT Aaron Donald gives some certainty to the other side of the ball.But there’s still much to be seen for the offensive line overhaul to come. LG Rodger Saffold III and C John Sullivan are now both gone, and LT Andrew Whitworth stuck around for his swan song. While discussions need to be had surrounding WR Robert Woods and WR Cooper Kupp, the biggest portion of this aspect is the O-line. Will OL Joseph Noteboom and OL Brian Allen turn into long-term components? Who will the Rams draft this year in the 2019 NFL Draft that could join them? And then what are the Rams’ plan for the O-line next year between free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft?You’re already seeing criticisms of the Seahawks that there’s a degree of salary cap waste by plugging so much money into a quarterback (albeit a very talented one) with such a porous offensive line. The Rams will be facing the same calls if they don’t manage the O-line personnel transition well.The NFL market in 2020 and the Rams’ cap situationThis one is so hard to parse.We’re headed out of the old NFL with Tom Brady (yes, at some point all things must end) and Peyton Manning and Drew Brees and toward the new NFL. A new guard of Goff, Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield are headlining things at the quarterback position while teams of previous futility like the Rams, Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars are pulling themselves out the basement after years of failure.So what does the NFL look like heading into the new CBA? The salary cap has expanded substantially in the current CBA going from $120m in 2011 to $177.2m this season. We’ll get one more increase next year before needing a new CBA to set the boundaries of discussions, but at least we know how this one will play out.As for the Rams’ cap, things look fine if only because the Rams have so few long-term deals in place. Into a new CBA, the Rams have just # players: WR Robert Woods (2022), Havenstein (2023), P Johnny Hekker (2023) Nolan Cromwell Jersey , Gurley (2024), Woods (2024) and Donald (2025). So while we’re far from being in the vaunted salary cap hell that so many ascribe to teams with high-cost quarterbacks, it’s because our future roster is largely TBD. Letting Saffold leave while Whitworth is set to retire keeps the Rams from getting too tied up in big money deals. Were DT Michael Brockers to leave in a year, that too would keep the Rams from being too tight. The biggest immediate decisions with respect to the cap along with a potential Goff deal leading the way will be at the cornerback position. Both CB Aqib Talib and CB Marcus Peters are heading into contract years. At 33-years old, Talib would be a risky veteran to ink to a long-term deal; a shorter one would be wiser albeit more difficult to negotiate. For Peters though, he’s likely looking for a massive payday. Former Rams CB Janoris Jenkins and CB Trumaine Johnson were both able to get market value that the Rams weren’t willing to meet. It shouldn’t surprise anyone if the same happens to Peters, but if the Rams are keen to keep the ebullient Peters around it’s going to cost them.The QB marketThis is where Wilson’s deal is illustrative for the Rams’ and Goff’s purposes. I don’t know if anyone will top Wilson’s by the time a Goff deal starts to become a hot topic, but we’ll have to see.And who knows what the options will look like for teams looking for starters. As of right now, the 2021 free agent QB class includes Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins (whom Pro Football Talk mentioned as a possible Rams target down the line), Brees, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton. There’s also the 2021 NFL Draft class to consider which is sure to be headlined by Clemson Tigers QB Trevor Lawrence who is the best QB prospect I’ve seen since Andrew Luck and maybe better.The last time I looked at a potential Goff extension, I closed it with this:While that all remains true, though we’re beyond the halfway point in his deal now, we’ve gotten a new barometer to gauge Goff against: his postseason play. Goff helped lead the Rams to the Super Bowl last year. That’s a new bullet point in his resume to add since we went over this in early November.But the outlook remains the same for the Rams and Goff even in light of the Russell Wilson.It’s going to be franchise-defining, career-defining and possibly record-setting. While the Los Angeles Rams are getting set for the playoffs Womens Brian Allen Jersey , the majority of the NFL is in offseason mode and looking ahead to the 2019 NFL Draft.So while the mock drafts are beginning to come in hot and heavy, the final week of the regular season gave us the early draft order for the 20 teams who didn’t make the playoffs:2019 NFL Draft OrderRd#Rd#TeamRd#Rd#TeamSo yes, the first and second picks of the draft will head to the NFC West via the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers, respectively.We’re going to have to wait for the coaching carousel to slow down to get a better sense of what kinds of roster builds will be required, but the general assessment of roster needs will get us settled as we head toward the combine next month. The big point of fact for both is that they have quarterbacks to rely on in Cardinals QB Josh Rosen and 49ers QB Crispy Crisco. And with the New York Jets having taken QB Sam Darnold last year, it’s not until you get to #4 with the Oakland Raiders that QB talk could surface. Would that prompt a trade from the teams below? Perhaps, though this QB class isn’t particularly strong.One interesting note? There’s not a single trade involving these 20 teams’ first-round picks. There are three trades for first-round picks, but they all involve playoff teams. The Chicago Bears sent their first-round pick (and plenty of others) to the Oakland Raiders for EDGE Khalil Mack, so the Raiders will have a second first-round pick this year. And a third. Oakland picked up the Dallas Cowboys’ first-rounder for WR Amari Cooper. The other trade will send the New Orleans Saints’ first-round pick to the Green Bay Packers as part of a deal the Saints made in the 2018 NFL Draft to move up in the first to take EDGE Marcus Davenport.The order for the remaining 12 draft picks will be determined by the playoffs and the usual factors (strength of schedule, record against division opponents and record against conference opponents). The four teams that lose in the wild card round this weekend will fill in the #21-24 spots. The four teams that lose in the divisional round will fill in #25-28. so the earliest pick the Rams could pick up would be the 25th. With the 29th and 30th picks going to the conference championship losers and the 31st going to the Super Bowl loser, here’s hoping the Rams pick 32nd when all is said and done.
