All eyes will be on Rams quarterback Jared Goff as he will be one of the most important members of the team when it plays the Chargers. Goff has been one of the finest players in the National Football League (NFL) and has made a fortune out of his career in the sport. So, let’s dig a little deeper and know how much he has earned over the years.
Early life and career
Born on October 14, 1994, Jared Thomas Goff attended Marin Catholic High School in California and was a part of the school’s football team. The athlete threw for 96 touchdowns and completed 477-of-672 passes (62%) for three varsity teams at Marin Catholic. The athlete was recruited by a number of college programs and received scholarship offers from esteemed institutions. But he chose to attend the University of California, Berkeley. He joined the Golden Bears for 2013 spring practices and was named starting quarterback for the 2013 season.
During his time at the university, he set 26 records. This included passing yards (12,220), passing yards per game (329.7), touchdown passes (96), completions (977), passing attempts (1,569), total offense (12,086), and total plays (1,739).
After playing for Cali for three seasons and achieving almost everything in his college football career, Goff announced his decision to forgo his senior season and enter the 2016 NFL Draft.
NFL Draft and signing
On April 28, 2016, Goff was selected with the first overall pick by the Los Angeles Rams in the 2016 NFL Draft. In June 2016, it was revealed that Goff has signed a four-year contract worth $27.9 million in guaranteed money, including an $18.6 million signing bonus. He played his first professional career game as the quarterback for the Rams against the Miami Dolphins. Goff achieved his first career touchdown pass on a 24-yard completion against New Orleans Saints.
In his first season, he completed 112-of-205 passes for 1,089 yards, five passing touchdowns, and seven interceptions while also rushing for 16 yards and a touchdown.
The athlete earned his first NFL award during the 2017 season when he finished with 311 passing yards and four touchdowns against the New York Giants. He won the NFL Offensive Player of the Week. The next week finished with 355 passing yards and 3 touchdowns as the Rams won 33–7. At the end of the 2017 season, he was ranked the 38th best player in the league.
In the NFC Championship against the New Orleans Saints, he gave an exceptional performance and passed for 297 yards, one touchdown as his team defeated the Saints in overtime. With that win, he became the youngest player to win an NFC Championship game.
During the 2019 season, Goff agreed to a four-year extension worth $134 million. The contract also included $110 million guaranteed money, which became an NFL record at the time.
Goff is the face of many popular brands such a Nike, Pizza Hut, Red Bull, Bose, Banana Republic, and BMW. According to Forbes, the quarterback earns $2 million annually from endorsing the aforementioned brands.
The quarterback started his own clothing line in 2019 and named it ‘JG16’. According to Goff, he wanted to do more than just be a football player and that’s why he thought of opening the clothing line. People can buy a variety of clothes like t-shirts, hoodies, beanies, sweatshirts and even hats.
In May 2018, he bought a home in Hidden Hills, California worth $4 million and went on to sell his first house in Oak Park, Cali. The buyer paid $1.8 million for the house. However, in 2019, Goff shifted to a bigger house and bought a brand-new house in the LA seaside town of Hermosa Beach. He shelled out $5.8 million for a house that consists of four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms in nearly 3,300 square feet of living space. It also includes three separate levels of interior living space and a rooftop deck with panoramic ocean views.
Goff has been quite active doing charities and uplifting the vulnerable communities. All the proceeds from his JG16 apparel line directly go to undeserved schools for various needs such as meals, learning tools, and other programs for students.
Additionally, Goff donated $250,000 to the Los Angeles Food Bank to help fund two million meals for people in need. “There are so many people in need right now and we want to do everything we can to help our Los Angeles community. My hope is that we can inspire others to support organizations like the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and United Way’s Pandemic Relief Fund as we come together to face this crisis,” Goff said in a press release.

Goff won the Courtyard Unstoppable Performance of the Year award at the NFL honors in 2019. He has received NFL Player of the Week and Player of the Month awards on several occasions. He is also an NFC Champion (2018) and won The Pro Bowl (all-star game) on two different occasions (2017 and 2018).
