Jared Goff had a rough first season with the Detroit Lions, but that all turned around last season. Goff and company led the Lions to a victorious season for the first time in years, so many think that Goff is the team’s longterm quarterback going forward.
However, now, Lions head coach Dan Campbell has said some, well, confusing things about Goff and his future with the team. In a new interview with CBS Sports, Campbell talked about Goff. While he praised the quarterback, Campbell also made it sound like he was keeping his options open for the future of the Lions.
“What he’s done is—and what we were hopeful and thought we were going to get—is a guy who, he’s our guy,” Campbell said in the sit down interview. “He’s bought us time here. We believe we can win with Jared Goff. And in the meantime, we also know he’s not going to be here for the next 10 years. It’s not like Jared Goff is a rookie. So certainly our eyes are on potentially a quarterback.” He added, “The question is where do you acquire that at? And that’s something that Brad and I kick around all the time. But we don’t feel like we’re pressed right now. We don’t feel like we’re pressed, but that doesn’t mean our eyes aren’t on a quarterback.”
