Rams GM Les Snead was asked by a reporter whether Jared Goff was their future quarterback, and his answer was juicy:
Rams GM Les Snead, given another chance to say whether Jared Goff is a Ram, says that he’s a “Ram right now, what’s today? Jan. 26….”— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) January 26, 2021
Snead emphasizes they want to be a better offense.
“He’s a Ram right now, what’s today? Jan. 26…”, Snead said.
He could’ve said, “Look, guys, we’re evaluating our team, and we’ll figure that our down the road.” But he didn’t. He got petty and couldn’t have made Goff’s future in L.A. sound more uncertain.
What’s even more interesting is what he said about Packers’ star Aaron Rodgers:
Rams GM Les Snead, asked repeatedly if there’s a scenario where Jared Goff wouldn’t be on the roster in 2021, declines to provide a yes/no answer, and references Aaron Rodgers’ recent quote about the future being a beautiful mystery.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) January 26, 2021
Well, no answer is really an answer in itself. Jared Goff is signed to a four-year, $134 million deal. If you can’t answer whether that guy is your future, there’s a disconnect.
It sounds more likely that they’re making statements about evaluating the future to make sure they don’t diminish Goff’s trade value.
We also can’t ignore Les Snead’s reference to Aaron Rodgers’ quote on a “beautiful mystery.” Is it possible that Aaron Rodgers wants to ditch Wisconsin for the sunshine of Los Angeles? After his 20-year tenure with the Patriots, Tom Brady just handpicked a squad and turned it into another success story. So why couldn’t Rodgers do the same?
He probably feels he can. And why wouldn’t he? He’s the MVP.
Pay close attention to the Rodgers camp going forward because the Rams might be calling for a discount double-check soon enough.
